How stripping helped one UNC student pay her drug citation fees

After being caught with under an ounce of marijuana, one student said she turned to stripping to cover the hundreds of dollars in fees and court costs.  “My friends were stripping at a club, and you can make a lot of money doing that," she said. "So, I did it to make the money I needed.” In one night, she earned all the money to pay for her drug citation. It was her first time stripping, but it wouldn’t be her last.
