That Smell Is Just My Cologne "Reefer"

Some people learn things the hard way... like how marijuana and police don't mix. From the Indy Star:
A man applying for a gun permit at the Caldwell County Sheriff's Office was instead charged with marijuana possession after authorities smelled it on his body.

"The odor was so overpowering that it soon filled hallways," according to a news release from Sheriff Alan Jones' office.

The canine team was called last week after officials in the office smelled marijuana on Dennis Lee Vines Jr., 25. Kilo, a German shepherd canine officer, found two small bags of marijuana, two marijuana cigarettes and two packs of rolling papers in Vines' pickup truck that was in the sheriff's office parking lot, authorities said.

Vines was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He was released on an $850 bond.

"We see it all in this business," Jones said of the incident.
Now the question is, did he still get his gun permit? But really, if you are going to go to a Police Station... leave your marijuana at home and not in your truck.
