Man Goes Directly to Jail, Just Like His Shirt Says

Cape Coral resident Micah Dailey was arrested for misdemeanor marijuana possession. He was booked into the Lee County Jail, and by the looks of the shirt on his mug shot, he should have seen it coming…

To make matters worse, even though the marijuana possession is only a misdemeanor charge, the cop charged Dailey with a felony possession of paraphernalia. Generally paraphernalia charge is a misdemeanor, but the cop alleged him with transportation of drug paraphernalia, which is a felony. He doesn’t say why it’s the enhanced charge, though theoretically, it’s possible, that the altoid box in which he found some leaves could be considered a use to transport a controlled substance (I have never seen the statute applied in that way). It seems silly to make the altoid box substantially more serious than the drugs contained therein. Sadly, the cop is a rookie and probably just typed in the wrong subsection of the paraphernalia statute. The end result being this kid is now facing a ridiculous felony charge because he has .025 g of weed.
