Perkins is an aspiring makeup artist, and had just finished a Facebook Live tutorial prior to being arrested.
“I sat in my car for two minutes waiting on my friends and while I was waiting a police car pulled up right behind me,” she said. The officer smelled marijuana in her car and found two grams in the vehicle, leading to her arrest.
Although she was first embarrassed about the whole situation, she now appreciates what it’s done for her. “Someone has reached out to me about starting my own makeup line. It’s crazy. My mind is blown,” Perkins added. “Now it’s turned into something so positive so I’m just going to embrace it and see where it takes me.”
