Police Apologize to Man Suspected of Carrying 5 Pounds of Marijuana in His Car After Determining It to Be 100% Catnip

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 3, 2007 -- Two Los Angeles police officers, coming out of a convenience store, observed a suspicious looking bag in the back seat of a car. When the owner of the car returned, the man was asked to open the car and "step aside." The two officers then searched the car and analyzed the content of the bag. After realizing it was catnip, the officers chuckled, apologized and let the man go.

It turns out that the owner of the car is none other than Adrian Martinez, founder of, a radio station that caters to pet lovers. He had just received the catnip earlier that day to be featured on an upcoming broadcast.

"My first thought was to run," says Martinez, jokingly. "We get a lot of products from companies and I carry anything from pet food to catnip in my car, however, I don't think I will be traveling with catnip anytime soon."

Since going from 200 listeners each week to over 3 million, the station reviews thousands of products for their listeners including pet supplies, home products and appliances, travel get-aways, automobiles, and various entertainment events.

Aside from offering music, news, product reviews, and travel tips for pet families,, which was launched in June of 2005 by Martinez, features DogCat TV -- a weekly program with a variety of segments including pet fashion shows hosted by celebrities, cooking for your pet by the Pet Chef, pet training exercises by celebrity pet trainer Kathryn Segura, and where to stay with your pet when traveling by Jane Harris.
