A story too good to be left unshared: According to the Willesden and Brent Times, a man in Neasden, England tried to use his IBS as a way to explain why he had 975 grams (over two pounds) of marijuana in his car. The report reveals two very different versions as to what occurred on the night of January 18, 2009. The police state that the man, Leon Brown, drove off when officers put on their flashing lights. After apprehending Brown on foot, he "gave a false name and denied driving the car". Mr. Brown's story was that he was on his way to help coach a children's football team. Although an expert testified that the amount of marijuana would result in over 1900 joints, Mr. Brown's stated that he brewed the marijuana as a tea with honey and lemon to soothe his IBS (Don't try this at home!). The court didn't buy his story and Mr. Brown was convicted on a charge of possession with intent to supply. I guess we can rely on the U.K. justice system to "weed" out those who use IBS as an excuse for criminal behavior!
