A traffic stop of a man in San Francisco's Bernal Heights neighborhood on Monday didn't just net the cops a parolee driving with a suspended license.
It also netted them "a baggie filled with marijuana."
No problem, says the parolee, who whipped out his medical marijuana identification card after receiving a doctor's recommendation for the medicine.
Only problem? It had expired.
So now the man has had his car towed, his pot confiscated and may face a return to jail if a parole officer and judge decide the drug possession charge merits it.
Jackson West figures this story illustrates yet another reason to go for car-free living.
