State v. Jones, 216 N.C. App. 519 (Nov. 1, 2011)

(1) The trial court improperly allowed an officer to testify that a substance was cocaine based on a visual examination. (2) However, that same officer was properly allowed to testify that a substance was marijuana based on visual identification. (3) In a footnote, the court indicated that the defendant’s statement that he bought what he believed to be cocaine was insufficient to identify the substance at issue.
