Man accused of selling pot, sex pills

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - An accused drug dealer surprised police Sunday with the type of pills he had packaged to sell.

Memphis police say Jimmy Lawerence-Dorsey of Milwaukee, Wisconsin showed up at the Union Avenue Greyhound bus station Sunday intent on getting home.  According to an affidavit of complaint, a security guard smelled a strong odor of burnt marijuana on Lawrence-Dorsey, and asked him to hand over any drugs.

Lawrence-Dorsey handed over 10.73 grams of pot.  A subsequent search of his bags by Memphis police revealed a handgun, ammunition, a blade scale, a grinder and several baggies containing little red pills.

The pills, labeled 'Stiff Nights,' are sold over-the-counter as a dietary supplement.  The affidavit does not indicate the Black Market price of the drugs, which were organized in three plastic baggies containing two to three pills each.

When asked what the pills were used for, according to the affidavit, Lawrence-Dorsey muttered he sold them to men to satisfy their sexual desires.

Lawrence-Dorsey is in jail, facing one gun charge and three drug charges.  Two are felonies, and if convicted, he could face hard time.
