A North Carolina teen who went by “itslilhotgirl” on Instagram is accused of using the social media platform to sell marijuana.
  
Citing a Durham County Sheriff’s Office warrant, The Herald-Sun reports 18-year-old Hannah Lyne Peters posed online with what appeared to be a pound of marijuana and a pink-and-black semi-automatic rifle and would post stories advertising her wares.
  
An informant twice bought from Peters and a deputy found marijuana in a car she was in March 5. She was released pending cooperation, but a March 13 Instagram story appeared to show around an ounce of marijuana. She was charged Tuesday.
  
A phone listing for Peters was disconnected. She didn’t immediately respond to emails seeking comment.
