Re: anti-crime

You can be convicted of being in possession of talcum powder if it can be proven that you thought it was cocaine.

I remember one case where a coke addict called the police and wanted them to arrest someone for selling her baking powder instead of cocaine. The cop didn't arrest anyone, but had a good laugh. He told the caller that he could arrest her for possession if she'd had real cocaine, so she should be happy she only had baking powder.
