SHAWANO COUNTY, Wis. (KMOX) - A Wisconsin woman is accused of making St. Patrick's Day a little extra green by handing out pot cookies in the Town of Wescott.

Cathleen Krause, dressed in a green hat and leather coat, handed out her wares from a gallon sized bag, says a witness who turned the treat over to cops.

When Shawano County sheriffs caught up to the 57-year-old, she was "visibly intoxicated" with an odor of "alcohol and marijuana on her breath," according to their report.

Upon searching Krause, the officers also uncovered gummy candies containing THC, and arrested her on several drug-related charges.
