Medical user claims pot switcheroo

Police in Washington state said a medical marijuana user told authorities that her bag of legal pot was switched with a bag of weaker weed at a party.

The Bremerton woman said she took her stronger medical marijuana to the party Friday to maintain control of it and at some point during the gathering a man told her she had dropped her bag of cannabis and handed it back to her, the Kitsap Sun of Bremerton reported Thursday.

However, the woman said she brewed a pot of marijuana-laced tea the next morning and noticed the drug was not as potent as it had been. The woman told police she used some of the marijuana and threw the rest away. She gave the empty bag to police.
