meth24n-2-webLori Potarf was charged with drug possession despite claiming that her religious rights as a Wiccan entitled to her to use the illegal drug.

Witchcraft made her do it.

An Oklahoma woman tried to get out of a drug bust by saying meth was perfectly OK for her to use because it was part of her Wiccan religion.

Yeah, right, said cops who arrested the self-proclaimed witch and charged her with possession of narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Lori Potarf and Richard Lee Henderson were stopped while driving on U.S. Highway 91 because their vehicle had a broken tail light, The Duncan Banner reported.

Both had Crown Royale liquor bags containing syringes, a spoon and traces of methamphetamine, the paper said.

Henderson did not claim he was a witch, police said.

    I read somewhere that phosphorous is actually made of the ground up bones of animals and potentially people (not sure about the people part, though–ew), so technically, meth-making could be considered witchcraft/sorcery. Creepy!

    Phosphorus is essential for life. As phosphate, it is a component of DNA, RNA, ATP, and also the phospholipids that form all cell membranes. Demonstrating the link between phosphorus and life, elemental phosphorus was historically first isolated from human urine, and bone ash was an important early phosphate source.

    Very interesting. Thanks for the background.
