Snapshot: Weed Is a Hell of a Drug

A Tennessee woman’s mugshot captured her defiant response after police searched her farm.


Peggy Brewington, a math tutor, flipped the bird to police while she was being booked Aug. 27 in Jackson, Tennessee, requiring the mugshot to be censored before release.

Brewington was arrested on a trespassing charge following a month-long investigation, according to authorities.

  • She reportedly told investigators they would find “maybe an ounce” of cannabis on her farm.
  • Instead, they discovered about 40 plants and 20 pounds of pot.


While there is a growing movement for national cannabis legalization, the drug remains illegal under federal law and the codes of Tennessee and 13 other states.
