A Woman Faces 30 Years in Jail After Water From a Bong Was Found During a Crash in Minnesota

Deputies in Minnesota pulled over a woman from North Dakota and found a bong in her car that tested positive for methamphetamine in the water. She could face up to 30 years in jail.

Police in Polk County, Minnesota, caught Jessica Beske from Fargo speeding on May 8. This was reported by the Minnesota Reformer. The police reportedly smelled marijuana coming from her car and searched it, according to the news source.

In court papers that NBC News got a hold of, Beske wrote that she was caught with three items that tested positive for meth. The Minnesota Reformer said that the officers found pipes, a bong, and a glass jar with a “crystal substance” in it.

Beske wrote that Minnesota law lets people have drug devices. She was pulled over though and charged with first-degree possession, she wrote.

Drug equipment was not a crime last year, even if it still has drug residue on it. But the Minnesota Reformer says that the changes did not get rid of a rule that makes bong water a controlled substance. People who are found guilty of first-degree possession crimes could get up to 30 years in jail, a $1 million fine, or both.

On Thursday, NBC News asked the Polk County Sheriff’s Office and the county attorney’s office for their thoughts. Beske didn’t answer right away when asked for a statement.

For the court records, Beske wrote that the bong and other things that were found were drug tools. She also asked that her car and the money she won at the casino be given back to her “because it is not subject to forfeiture.”

The charges against Beske didn’t make sense, she told the Minnesota Reformer.

She said, “It doesn’t make sense.” “It doesn’t make sense to anyone.”
