No, this isn’t her. But I’d like to live in a world where it is.

​Police claim a Mill Creek, Washington espresso stand may be the first in Snohomish County to offer lattes with a shot of marijuana on the side.

An undercover detective with the Snohomish Regional Drug Task Force claims he last week twice bought pot from the business, according to a search warrant affidavit filed Friday, reports Jackson Holtz of the Everett Herald.
The primary suspect in the case is an “attractive” Mill Creek woman, 46, Holtz reports. She has not been arrested or charged, Holtz told Toke of the Town, so the Herald is not yet naming her.
“Photos of the woman posted on an Internet site show her posing with her handsome son,” the newspaper tells us.
Police claim they bought weed at the stand, south of the Silver Firs neighborhood, from both the woman and her son’s girlfriend.

​The investigation began last month when a confidential informant told detectives the woman was selling something stronger than coffee.
According to the rat, marijuana was available at both the woman’s house and at her coffee stand, which is located on the same property, police said.
An undercover detective went to check things out for himself last week.
He drove up and placed his order. The policeman claims the woman then walked over to her house and came back with a coffee cup holding just under a quarter ounce of marijuana.
The woman agreed to sell the undercover cop more pot later that day. The detective claims the woman said she had the pot pre-packed in small amounts in her home, and that her son’s girlfriend would be working, but was in on the gig.
The son’s girlfriend was expecting the undercover cop when he returned that afternoon, police said. She left the espresso stand, went to the house and returned with just under an ounce of marijuana in a paper bag, police claim.
Police on Friday seized suspected marijuana, scales, bongs, pipes and other paraphernalia, according to the search warrant.
