My friends and I went to the state park on Saturday so we could go hiking.
We decided to take my car, because I get the best gas mileage.
My friends wanted to bring recreational and medical marijuana supplies. I was totally okay with the idea. We smoked some marijuana before we left to go to the park and we also smoked some marijuana after we were done hiking. On our way back to the apartment, I was pulled over by the state police officer for speeding. I didn’t think that I was actually speeding, but I didn’t look at my speed when the officer turned on his lights. I was hoping that the officer would be cool about the fact that we had been smoking recreational marijuana in the car. The guy was absolutely not cool with marijuana use. He smelled marijuana in the car and immediately said he wanted to search the car for paraphernalia. I admitted to having a joint in the glove compartment, but the officers still decided to search the car. I got a ticket for speeding and a ticket for having marijuana in the vehicle. Most traffic tickets total more than $500 worth of fines and they were all my responsibility to pay. Our fun and relaxing day at the park ended with me getting in trouble for having marijuana in the vehicle in an open container. I have to pay a pretty big fine, but I don’t have to go to the courthouse and the city gives you 90 days to pay the fines.
