Accused Drug Trafficker Shows up to Court Wearing Jacket Featuring Recipe for Crack Cocaine

When you go to court, dress professionally. Well, maybe not if you're a professional drug dealer:

A man accused of drug trafficking showed up for court Friday in Fort Lauderdale sporting a jacket that bore a cartoon-style recipe for cooking crack cocaine. [...]

The man's white jacket looked like a how-to guide for making crack cocaine, with a series of little pictures of a white substance with a spoon, a carton of baking soda and a little pot over a fire. The end product was a "rock," slang for the drug.

The finishing touch was the slogan "stack paper say nothing" — make money and hold onto it, in the vernacular.

Witnesses, including the man's attorney Joshua Rydell, would not reveal the name of the man, who did not get into trouble for his threads.

Rydell said his clients still surprise him by wearing drug-related attire to court.

"Giant marijuana leaves on their T-shirts..." Rydell said. "It's so common that I routinely advise clients, 'No drug-related clothes when you come to court.'" -via Dave Barry | Photo: Michael D. Weinstein
