Man tries to buy M&Ms with pot; Fake Hershey's "Pot" Candy

Wade Churchward, 28, went to a service station on March 22 in the capital, Wellington, where he picked up two packets of M&M's candy and some potato chips, the Dominion Post newspaper reported.

Churchward failed to notice a patrol car outside and a police officer standing behind him in line -- who promptly arrested him.
