A New Orleans attorney is in trouble. Standing in front of court police, a joint dropped out of his pocket.

To make matters worse, Jason Cantrell is the assistant city attorney. He was on personal business when it happened, but still, this doesn’t look good.

Cantrell got arrested for possession. It’s probably a lesson for everyone. Never leave home without your brain.  But leave your stash behind.
