Let's see... I'm going to a place where the cops are looking for drugs, so I'll take them in an unmarked container - even though they come in a container with my name on them. If I was cop, I'd do the same thing.
Now, you could applaud the cops and chastise the free spirits who want the freedom do what they will with their own bodies, but I'll call you a docile body and a victim of the panopticon. I call this behavior by the cops over and unneccessary policing of adults.
Call it whatever you like.

Burning Man does not change the law.
Can't smoke pot, can't drive over 0.08, can't shoot smack, can't fuck an 8 year old. Just deal with it.
