HAMPSTEAD, N.H. — A New Hampshire police department has issued a public service announcement with an odd mug shot after a man was arrested with marijuana in his car.
Hampstead police said in a release Monday, “as a public service announcement — it is illegal to possess recreational marijuana in New Hampshire, even if you only ‘smoke it in Massachusetts.’”
WMUR-TV reports the announcement came after the arrest of 27-year-old Selket Taylor, who was pulled over for using his cellphone while driving.
Police say they arrested Taylor after they saw he had a bag of marijuana in a cup holder.
Taylor has been charged with possession of a controlled drug, transporting a controlled drug in a motor vehicle and use of an electronic mobile device. In his arrest photo, Taylor is sticking out his tongue while his eyes are closed and arms are crossed.
