MARY REICHARD, HOST: File this one under “think again.” Or, maybe just “think.”
A man in Florida keeps calling the police to say that, “Hey man, my roommate is stealing my weed.”
Dude, I’m a lawyer. Possession of marijuana is illegal in the state. First-degree misdemeanor. Up to a year in jail. Up to $1,000 fine. Two year driver’s license suspension.
You shouldn’t call the police and make that report. That’s my advice.
Which is basically what Pasco County Deputy Neal Zalva said. Here’s a little video the officer made and posted on Twitter:
ZALVA: Alright, so I just received a call. A guy’s calling in saying his roommate stole his weed, $20 worth, and he’s upset, so he keeps calling 911. So I had to give him a call, to tell him to stop calling about his weed.
Yeah, I wonder what’s going to happen if he keeps calling.
The video is part of the Sheriff’s #TweetAlong program that lets people hear what police sometimes have to endure on the job.
