STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Dec. 24 (UPI) -- A woman who told a Swedish court she thought the 15 pounds of marijuana she smuggled into the country was grass for the lawn was sentenced to jail.

The woman, who was found to be carrying the marijuana in a purple bag by customs officials on the February train from Copenhagen, Denmark, to Malmo, Sweden, was sentenced to two years and three months in jail, TheLocal.se reported Tuesday.

The court heard the woman admitted to the customs officials that she was carrying "grass," but she told them she believed it to be actual grass for a lawn, not cannabis. She said she did not know "grass" was a common euphemism for marijuana.

The woman's brother-in-law, whose fingerprints were found on the purple bag, was also sentenced to two years and three months in jail.
