HOLIDAY, Fla., March 9 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said a box of marijuana found in a car was labeled with the motorist's first name and the word "pot."

Pasco County sheriff's deputies said Rebekah Michal Tracht-Kader, 21, smelled of alcohol and marijuana when she was pulled over for driving through a stop sign at 2 a.m. Saturday in Holiday, Fla., the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times reported Tuesday.

Deputies said Tracht-Kader had bloodshot eyes and was slurring her speech. They searched the car and discovered a green plastic box labeled "Rebekah's pot" and containing an undisclosed amount of marijuana.

Tracht-Kader was given two breath tests measuring her blood-alcohol content at 0.184 and 0.189, well over the .08 limit for driving in the state.

She was charged with driving under the influence and possession of marijuana.
