Is Paris’ Purse Full O’ Pot?

One can only wonder what celebrities carry in their thousand dollars handbags, and this weekend Paris Hilton accidentally gave the paparazzi a peek inside her silver Balenciaga motor bag. While she was innocently trying to reapply some tacky pink polish to
her nails, the photogs started snapping away at her open purse, and guess what they found? Amongst a myriad of items, including a Blackberry, a lollipop, and a tube of MAC Lipglass, there was a conspicuous little plastic bag that looked like it contained…..cannabis. Or in other words, pot.

Her spokesperson, Elliot Mintz swears it’s not pot, but rather, loose tobacco. Paris likes to roll her own cigarettes. However, in the past her homemade cigs have looked too much like doobies for people to believe otherwise.

So here’s an enlarged photo of the contents of Paris’s purse. You be the judge, is it pot or is it tobacco? I’m guessing if it’s not pot, it may be betel nuts. Betel nuts are chewed in many Asian countries as a snack, and although they have a mild stimulative effect, they are not yet a controlled substance.

But Paris never struck me as the betel nut chewing kind of girl.

    I was going to rush out and buy a Chanel Black Satin lookalike polish, Opi “Lincoln Park after Dark,” but now that I see that Paris has switched to pink I know that the trend is dying out. I wish I was kidding.

    Where can I get these Betel nuts? If they give you a mild buzz they might be fun. Do they have a lot of calories?

    I’m disappointed, it’s not pot. If it is, that is the most brown pot I’ve ever seen; I suggest Paris fire Rachel Zoe ASAP and use Philippe’s dealer.

    When you get a hold of some Betel nuts, write us a blog when you’re tripping on them. That would be a kick ass blog. (I’m doubtful the caloric count would matter if you’re all stimulated up).

    Actually Celebitchy, you can buy betel nuts in snack packs at Indian/Pakistani grocery stores. Shahi Supari is a famous brand name, it comes in red and white packaging and it’s actually quite tasty as an after dinner treat. They mix it with candied fennel seeds and it actually tastes sweet. Stay away from the ones with menthol in them, those might be too strong at first. And, you’re gonna love this, betel nuts are actually an appetite suppressant. Which reminds me, I gotta get to my Indian grocer and get me some Supari.

    I am going to go get me some of those Betel nuts now. I’m sure there’s an Indian grocer in the city here, I’ll have to find one. I do drink plenty of coffee so I try to get the news out as quickly as possible with the aid of legal stimulants. The menthol ones might be fun to try even if they’re super strong.

    I agree with Viv, that does not look like pot to me. It’s too brown with pod-like circles as opposed to leaves. And for that matter, the nail polish doesn’t look like nail polish to me either. It looks like lip gloss because of how skinny the neck of the bottle is. Plus, who does quick touch ups of nail polish when you’re out? You’re more likely to get it on your clothes and such.

    uh … looks like hootch to ME!
    Also – Isn’t betel nut chewing what makes African tribeswomen’s teeth turn dark brown??

  7. AC says:

    IT looks like … the leftover seeds … the color is way off though. It looks like really bad seedy weed. or … maybe im not rich enough to have seen this most potent brown weed. But in my expeirence… which, lets say qualifies me to at least identify pot … i’d say this looks too off color. But its defenitely not tobacco. Maybe its just leftover seeds for her own personal crop?

  8. Moneky says:

    Listen… i’m from the Netherlands (you know: Pass that dutch) and I smoke weed… ALLOT! this is weed and i’m sure of it! It looks like the crappiest weed I ever seen though. So don’t think see got a really great buzz out of it… If you ask me, if you have so much money, you should get another dealer!

    That’s not pot !!!
    And if so, she went to the wrong dealer in Amsterdam.

  10. DC says:

    That’s defenitly pot, yeah, it looks weird but I had that kind of pot (jamaican) the other day and it looks alot like this (and yeah, it works though me as a dutchie I prefer good Skunk ofcourse

  11. brangelinaarethepitts says:

    it looks like pot that has gone to seed…what a hassle having seeds popping in your face everytime you take a toke

  12. Jude says:

    It’s just too bad they couldn’t find a picture of a baggie with something white in it instead of something green/brown–you know Paris has more in there than just pot.

  13. Lola says:

    that’s some pretty awfull pot you got there.. I’m dutch, so pot isn’t that strange to me, but I’ve smoked and seen better than this bag. But, loose tabacco?! come on!! you don’t keep that in a see-through little bag.. I can’t actually believe they think anyone would buy that, hilarious

  14. Viv says:

    So you know, I think Americans smoke as much as the Dutch even if it is legal there and it’s embarrassing that Paris Hilton’s weed is all we have to show for it. I mean, if someone seriously had tried to sell that dank to me, I’d pop them one because wtf, that is some crap-ass looking dank, man; it doesn’t even look like weed which is why I don’t think it is. Crap. Ass. It does however look like seeds and stems, so I guess I secede that it is weed-like in nature. Obviously Paris doesn’t know that when you toke it’s not sposed to go off like a firecracker.

    Maybe she really has pot seeds to grow her own. Who knows with her! And is that really a lollipop, or an already rolled up joint?
