I parked my car one time and smoked some weed with my girlfriend in the back of an empty church, around 9 p.m. 5 minutes after we began smoking, a cop shows up behind me. I played it cool, put everything away, and he pulled up beside me, with his window down. I shit you not this is what he said, "Woooooo that smells gooood. I smelled that stuff all the way down the street."
I didn't know if I should take this as a compliment or if I should be worried. I politely said "I don't smell anything officer," to which he laughed and got out of his car. I was with my girlfriend, so he made sure she was safe and wasn't being held against her will, standard procedure i Guess. He then made us get out of the car and asked if he could search my car. "I'm sorry officer, but I don't consent to any searches." I said. To which he again laughed and replied "Oh, you're one of those smart kids huh."
"Well," he said, "Let me tell you something about me. I can give a rat's ass whether you're smoking in there or not, matter of fact, I know for a fact you were smoking in there because I can smell it, and it smells very strong. I just want to make sure you're not gonna drive out of here stoned, it impairs your driving. Do you have anyone to pick you up?" The guy had a point here. I said "I can assure you officer, that smell must be coming from somewhere else, because I can smell it too, and it does smell pretty strong." This is where he put his hands on his hips and looked at me dead straight for 10 seconds. Then he put my i.d. on the hood of my car, got in his car, and drove off. I think he figured that since I was capable of handling myself in front of him, then I should be capable of driving home. But I was worried If I should take off, since I thought he might be around the corner waiting for me to get in the car and drive off, so he could bust me with a DUI. I called my sister and had her pick us up, and as soon as we left the parking lot, sure enough, there were two cops right behind each other just parked with their cars off in front of the house next to the church. My sister drove me the next morning to pick up my car. I hopped in it, and maaaannnnnn did it smell good. That cop wasn't lying. Never ever smoked in my car again. Worst mistake ever.
