AUSTIN (KXAN) — A 22-year-old woman now faces a felony charge after Austin Police believe she was smoking marijuana and had hash at Austin City Limits Music Festival last year, according to new court records.

Two officers saw a man and woman they believed were smoking pot on a blanket near the Honda Stage at ACL in 2014, the records state. After that, officers searched a backpack and found pill bottles suspected to contain marijuana, a suspected marijuana-based granular substance, and several containers containing a brown substance believed to be hash. Documents indicate the woman said the substances were hers.

According to the arrest warrant for possession of a controlled substance, the suspected hash tested positive for THC, the psychoactive compound that gives marijuana users a high.
