Not-So-Holy Roller Smuggles Pot Into Jail … Using A Bible




|| By FITSNEWS || There’s nothing in the Bible that says you can’t smoke pot. In fact, God put marijuana on the earth … for us to consume.  And you won’t find a website as critical of government’s failed “War on Drugs” (or the aggressive tactics used in its prosecution) as this one.

Having said all that, there’s a story out of Union County, S.C. that must be told …

Earlier this month, Monkia Marie Ryans – a 24-year-old native of Jonesville, S.C.  – was arrested and charged with attempting to smuggle contraband into the Union County (S.C.) jail.

What did she do?

According to the Union County Sheriff’s Office, Ryans attempted to smuggle tobacco, rolling paper and three marijuana cigarettes (a.k.a. “joints”) into the jail by hiding them in the spine of a book.

Which book?  The Bible …

From The Union Daily Times …

Sheriff David Taylor said Ryans had brought a Bible to the jail around 2:25 p.m. Aug. 7, and informed the jail supervisor that she wanted the Bible to be given to an inmate who was serving time. Taylor said the jail supervisor noticed the Bible didn’t look or feel right, so he contacted Captain Robbie Hines who oversees jail operations.

The Bible was taken and x-rayed, and during the x-ray, a green plant material was noticed inside the binding of the Bible.

The jail supervisor opened the bottom binding of the Bible and found loose tobacco, white paper and three marijuana cigarettes inside.


Here’s Ryans’ mug shot …
