Bringing pot to court

I don't know about you, but if I needed an attorney to represent me at the courthouse, I would want that person to be sharp, focused, and prepared for the day.

Attorney Regina Criswell was arrested at the Bexar County Courthouse after deputies say they discovered two ounces of marijuana and a chrome-colored marijuana pipe in her bag.

Deputies say Criswell was heading into the Courthouse to go to work. As is standard, security guards went through everyone's bags including Criswell's. That's when they say they found the baggie and pipe. Deputies were called over, and [they] questioned Criswell. The 50 year old woman admitted she knew the drugs were in her bag, but said they belonged to a client.

Well, if you believe Ms. Criswell that the pot was indeed for her client, then what kind of lawyer would she be? What attorney condones the smoking of pot by their clients in a courthouse, and then agrees to transport the drugs herself? Seems to me to be a lack of good judgment, at the very least.
