Turner was searched when he left the cubicle and two wraps of cannabis were found on him.

They have odd measurements over there.

Blackpool magistrates decided the 18 hours he had spent in custody would serve in lieu of a £65 fine and ordered the drugs to be destroyed.

Pretty sure he was going to do that anyway.

The only dumbass thing here is that, when the police knocked on the cubicle door, he didn't flush the goods.

Quite why the police felt they had the right to search him in this case is also unclear.

And prosecution for weed possession in the UK is pretty remarkable in itself. He must have been a real dick to the coppers.

Yes. Pants are what you wear *under* your trousers.

He was helping his girlfriend in a private changing room, and his girlfriend confirmed his story. Why was he searched upon exiting?

Uh, because it's the UK.

Actually there's one more reason I can think of. Potentially:

Bus station toilets + multiple people in a cubicle = heroin.

At least that's probably what the cops thought, and if it's a known bad spot then the observed behaviour could contribute reasonable suspicion.

The prosecution (and associated criminal record) still seems a bit harsh though.

And here I get flamed when I complain that it sucked to send me, a guy, into the girl's restroom to clean. Of course, in some forums (here and elsewhere) some flames will happen no matter what is said.

People have to understand that doing anything out of the ordinary gives a police officer the ability to search you. All they have to do in court is say that something you did caught their attention. Then, they have the ability to pat you down and ask for ID for their safety. Refusing to show ID or consent to a search can then be used as probable cause to arrest you as you must have something to hide from the cops.

I think someone has a premature issue. And other issues that require the mayo clinic website perhaps?

I know this might be hard to hear, but they don't like guys going into the dressing rooms and trying the bras on.

At least take a girl with you if you're going to do that.

How do you know? Were you there? Maybe it was time for the deci-annual application of Thompson's Weather Seal. That stuff can take 24 hours to dry all the way...

He's unemployed, but he has(had) weed and a girlfriend
He's doing better than the average Farker.

Fixed
We can all feel better about ourseleves when we realize he most likely lost the girl when he got arrested and lost his weed.

The first thing I thought of was that they probably though that it was a drug deal, and having 2 wraps on him does seem a little strange. I think sex in a public toilet is illegal here so that would have given them reason to follow if not the drugs.

The police say things like wraps, they can't say an eight, or a quater because you never get your 3.5g or 7gs' it's a sellers market. If they had given the weight it would have probably been something like 4.8g's (rip off bastards)

I've often wondered if you guys have the right word for trousers, we call underware pants or briefs (well I call them boxers) which is short for underpants or under - pants so that would make the top layer pants (pantaloons) meh it's still a bloody pavement.
