A Georgia woman remained in jail for three months after police thought blue cotton candy in her car was methamphetamine and now she has filed a lawsuit.

The woman was tested for methamphetamine once police suspected the cotton candy to be the meth. The cotton candy tested positive for meth on a roadside test, but it was discovered that the drug test was faulty.

Dasha Fincher was in jail for three months with bond set at $1 million after Fincher was accused of trafficking drugs when she was pulled over on Dec. 31, 2016, and police saw a bag with a blue substance on the floor, FOX5 reported.

According to the police report, police tested the candy because of “packaging and crystal-like feature.” Fincher was then charged and arrested by Monroe County Deputies with trafficking methamphetamine with intent to distribute.

The cotton candy was sent to the GBI for lab analysis while Fincher was in jail for three months and the GBI concluded the blue substance contained no controlled substance.

The GBI sent their results about the blue cotton candy not having a controlled substance to investigators on March 22, 2017 and Fincher was not released from jail until April 4, 2017.

The deputy who performed the test admitted that he had “no training in drug recognition” according to the lawsuit.

  1. We need Sheriffs with backbone who follow the rule of law and valid scientific evidence …Sheriffs who truly represent and protect the people. In Georgia we have too many innocent people murdered by law enforcement who are following statements of vengeful women or persons with mental instability…it has happened this year in Walker County…a good man shot and killed at his kitchen table in front of his children and grandchildren by an over zealous deputy shooting through a kitchen window while following the false claim of a vengeful woman. What happened to “innocent until proven guilty” ? What happened to the rule of law? Are we under lawless communist rule in Georgia? What happened to the Constitutional sanctity of the home and protections of our property and privacy?
