Gladstone woman with hidden drug smoking pipes in bra
A GLADSTONE woman found with "mock" LSD in Beatles wrap also had two drug smoking pipes tucked into her bra.
Kiara Sampson, 22, pleaded guilty in Gladstone Magistrates Court to possession of phenethylamine on December 27; and having drug utensils, two glass smoking pipes in her bra, telling police she intended to use them to smoke MDMA.
She told police officers at the time the tabs were LSD. However, prosecutor Sgt Barry Stevens said the tabs found in 11 clip seal bags were analysed as a derivative of phenethylamine.
He said Sampson was in a car that police stopped on Young St and searched.
"She said (tabs) were all mine and was of the belief it was LSD," Sgt Stevens said. "The two smoking pipes in her bra were not used but she said she intended to use the pipes for MDMA.
"It is a mock LSD and can lead to confusion, vomiting, paranoia, and it's been linked to deaths in extreme cases."
Lawyer Jun Pepito said it was her second drug related offence and Sampson may need some help. "It is not LSD but a mimic of LSD," he said.
Magistrate Penelope Hay said the case delay was due to the drug being analysed and Sampson was on a good behaviour order at the time of the offence.
Ms Hay told Sampson that having the tabs in 11 bags "is a lot if you thought it was LSD, a lot if it was for your own use".
"It is an artificial version of LSD and increases the risk to your own health.
"Sourcing drugs from drug dealers doesn't come with guarantees of quality. You can't complain to Consumer Affairs if what you get is not what you paid for."
Ms Hay sentenced Sampson to a supervised 12 month Probation Order. She must also forfeit $400 for the breach of her prior good behaviour bond.
