Arrested Man: “I Thought Cocaine Wasn’t Illegal”

Even though it’s been illegal across the country for decades, 46-year-old Guy Lanchester used ignorance as an excuse to try and get out of cocaine possession and evidence tampering charges. Last February, police in Key West caught him red (or white) handed with a bag of cocaine in his hands outside of a resort, where he had been seen arguing loudly with a woman. Lanchester reportedly “shoved his hands into [a] flower pot and yanked them back out,” but police quickly stepped in and uncovered a small plastic baggie with .8 grams of cocaine. When questioned by the cops, he told them he “thought cocaine wasn’t illegal in Florida.”
