Sandra Bland.

PRAIRIE VIEW, Texas — A toxicology report for the Naperville woman found dead in a Texas jail cell shows she may have smoked pot while in custody.

Authorities say Sandra Bland hung herself in a cell after she was arrested during a traffic stop. Bland’s family says she wouldn’t have killed herself.

A toxicology report shows the level of THC in her system was three times the legal limit for driving. Two experts say the level was so high she either smoked marijuana in jail or was a chronic pot smoker.

The Texas prosecutor investigating Bland’s death has created a committee of outside attorneys to review the case.
