LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville woman has been arrested after police say she was found with "Black Voodoo" -- a synthetic cannabis product.

It happened Wednesday afternoon on Lillian Ave., near the intersection of Central Ave. and Taylor Blvd.

According to an arrest report, 28-year-old Latosha L. Jacobs was stopped by police because she was in the company of someone they were serving an arrest warrant on.

After she allegedly gave officers permission to search her purse, police say they found a bag of synthetic cannabis labeled, "Black Voodoo." Police say Jacobs admitted to purchasing the drug at a nearby store and said she planned to smoke it later, according to the arrest report.

Police say the drug's label states that, "This product complies with all federal and state law. It is not meant for human consumption."

Instead, the label indicated that it was meant for use as "aromatherapy."

Police say they also found a bottle of hydrocodone that had Jacobs' name on it. The bottle indicated that it had been filled with 21 pills on Wednesday, but only nine remained in the bottle. Jacobs allegedly could not explain why more than half the pills were missing.

Jacobs was arrested and charged with "possession of synthetic cannabinoid agonists or piperazines" and possession of a controlled substance.
