Now this is just plain stupid!
I know many people that either smoke pot occasionally or take prescription medication (carried in other than the large pharmacy bottles) that are upstanding citizens. The lunchtime dosage for my medicine could be possession of a controlled substance if some overzealous cop wanted to charge me at a traffic stop and it would not matter if I could prove the legal prescription in court.
Let us take it a step further shall we? Say there is a known gun owner in the neighborhood (a fine upstanding individual). However the homeowner down the street saw the gun owner loading a few guns in his car for a trip to the range and does not like the fact that guns are in the neighborhood. Or the local drug trafficker, burglar or other criminal sees or hears of this. What would stop them from planting evidence and tipping off law enforcement so that the upstanding individual is stripped of his rights to defend himself?
