FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., May 22 (UPI) -- He don't lie, he don't lie, he don't lie, Cocaine. Edward Cocaine, that is.

Cocaine, a Florida drug suspect, was feeling "naturally high" after he found out that prosecutors had decided not to charge him with drug possession following an investigation that revealed he was telling the truth about having a prescription for Xanax.

"I'm very happy," Cocaine told the Sun Sentinel. "Naturally high."

The Fort Lauderdale man was pulled over last month for driving with an obscured license plate and police found the Xanax pills in a different bottle than they had come in. "I don't feel like I committed a crime," Cocaine said.

Cocaine's lawyer was able to get the possession charge dropped when he produced an old prescription for the drug. "On the bottle it says, 'Take as needed,'" Brad Cohen said.

Now that the matter has been resolved, Cocaine's Internet fame may fade away. "Pretty cool," Cocaine said. "I was famous for a minute."
