'Are you smoking pot?'; 'Why yes, I am, officer'
Massachusetts police say a Springfield man blew through a stop sign and also blew a cloud of marijuana smoke when he was pulled over.Now, I'll give the guy credit for one thing. He didn't pull the "I just had a couple beers, officer" bulls**t that so many fall victim to attempting. Cops aren't dumb. They know that if you only had two beers, they must have had been the gallon jug variety for you to be swerving all over the road. Rather than give the officer a stupid lie that would have failed instantly, he owned up. I'll give him that.
An officer enforcing seat belt laws as part of the annual "Click It or Ticket" campaign saw a vehicle drive through a stop sign Tuesday evening. When the driver stopped and rolled down the window, police say, the officer was "covered in a plume of smoke."
But the sheer stupidity of smoking pot while driving. I mean, really. It's pretty obvious *something* is going on, and if you do something stupid - like roll through a stop sign in front of a cop - it's so easy to nail you. I suspect that the officer was in a marked vehicle, if it was part of a targeted campaign to get people to wear their seatbelt.
Then again, no one ever said stoners had a lot of common sense.
That is all.
