Then, according to Hill and court testimony, he and his “longtime employee,” actress and singer Tearra Rosario, whose stage name is Tearra Oso, were to dress up like state troopers.
This, he said, was so he and Rosario could pose for photos with people who were smoking marijuana at the Cannabis Cup.
“The stoner people at the festival find it humorous to have their picture taken with a cop,” Hill explained to Illinois State Trooper Chad Martinez in a video captured by Martinez's squad car camera.
The High Times Cannabis Cup, incidentally, is the “world’s leading marijuana trade show, celebrating the world of ganja through competitions, instructional seminars, expositions, celebrity appearances, concerts and product showcases. Hosted in states that have legalized medical and recreational marijuana, the Cannabis Cup stands as the foremost gathering place for the cannabis community to network and celebrate,” according to the event's website.
