Animated and emphatic doesn't work with most police - it certainly didn't work with Michael Smith or Eric Garner, did it? When given an order by a law enforcement officer, comply and sort it out in court. People don't win fights with police.

If the moderators are OK with us taking a detour into criminal procedure, I absolutely love discussing that sort of stuff and will happily join in. I just know the site is particular about straying too far afield of the thread's original conceit.

Yesterday during a round with my grand daughter, and two other, new to us, young gentlemen (25-ish?) something came up after the 4th hole. The two young guys lit up a joint. When I saw (smelled) what

I'm completely sick of some of this "entitled" behavior.  Good for you and your granddaughter and your son-in-law and his brother!  It's frustrating how some people don't want others to infringe on th

So here's the thing that stumps me. If you're doing something illegal, or otherwise against the rules, isn't the #1 rule to never draw negative attention to yourself? If you're smoking illegally

It would be a nice topic for the Grill Room.

In the example given by @dfreuter415 , I don't think the cops had just cause to search them. I would have said no.

This incident happened in 1968, and back in the "old days" there was never a thought about not letting the police search the car, especially when we had nothing to hide.

I believe we beat this to death, resurrected and beat it to death again.  Peace.

I agree.. Say goodnight Gracie... :-D

I have no issues with people smoking weed.  I use to smoke in college and high school.  I would still partake if my job didn't drug test.  It would never even cross my mind to smoke in front of complete strangers much less when there is a young child there as well.

Obviously way off topic, but if you'll humor me ... With cops, you need to show them respect and cooperate with them as long as they are reasonable. The problems come when they overstep themselves. Be respectful, but don't let them intimidate you and trample your rights either. Most of the police I've dealt with are reasonable, but there are always exceptions. In the example given by @dfreuter415 , I don't think the cops had just cause to search them. I would have said no.

I don't know about the state laws in which this incident took place but as in Florida the only just cause a police officer needs is for he/she to smell marijuana.

I've also sensed a total disregard for the fact (if indeed this incident even took place) that smoking weed is in fact illegal in whatever state this incident took place according to the OP saying that it " is legal where we're from". Whether or not the guys needed to go to jail I don't really know but they still broke a law and most definitely were idiots for lighting up in front of a stranger.

I think your senses are wrong. Pretty sure everyone has realized that.

Or maybe you just haven't read the thread? There have been many post eluding the idea that the OP should have minded his own business.

I've never seen anyone smoke pot on the course.  Not sure I've ever smelled pot on any course.  I have not smoked pot golfing.  Hope this helps.

That is good.  If we played together I would be using it and you would never know.  And that is how it should be.

One of the big issues is the pervasive and long lasting odor of pot - it seems as bad or even worse than tobacco.  That is going to rapidly disappear as marijuana legalization spreads and more  users, medical and otherwise, become aware of the advantages of vaping and eating.  Both are way healthier, smell free, and more efficient..

Yup.  I play regularly with a guy who smokes (and sometimes vapes) weed, and more often than not I never even notice when he does it.

Funny thing is, I'd be irritated to play with someone who was smoking it because of the smell.  I wouldn't yap at the guy though, I'd try to convert him to vaping.  LOL

    • It is insane this is still being talked about. I read that people are saying he was the winner. Crazy!
    • Day 109.  Round of 16 of my club's match play.  I lost 3&2 but made a new friend.  There's this issue that happens to me at this course we played (not our home course due to availability of tee times).  It's come up a few times, but ... my second shot on the first three holes, plus my tee shot on the par-3 4th, were horrible.  Seems to happen to me I hit a few bad early shots, despite getting to the course, stretching, and warming up.  Despite this, still had sub-10 handicap baseline strokes gained: approach.  And for the first time, sub-10 handicap baseline SG:driving.  I also did some "miss the green" short game shots from what should be easy positions today... did that four times, totally inexcusable. I sank some long putts even but missed some short ones.  Putting was sub-20 handicap level today, which was cool.  Gotta pull it all together at some point again. 
    • Day 3 June 12 - Went to the driving range to get used to a new wedge. I had a wedge fitting yesterday and needed to find out if I could hit touch shots with it in addition to the full shots. 25 shots with it. Done. Then went on to work on getting through the shot with my irons. I need to get my weight forward and stay on plane through the shot better. Why is it so easy to stay on plane with my 5W? I can return that on the original shaft plane and smoke shot after shot. But why is it so much more difficult with my irons? I need to take a video and look at this. I need to look at what I'm doing with my 5W and move that over to my irons.
    • I’ll keep it simple and short... my draw bias ZX hybrids I can’t hit, they just go left.  I’m thinking about buying the ZX5 4-iron and trying to figure out 14th club.... At Genny I rarely have to hit either hybrid.... but longer courses I’d be between 3-wood and 5-iron. (The 4-iron is a 6-8 week wait).    I usually don’t mind a hybrid (don’t mind hitting the ball high)... I’m looking basically at a few options... It’s not exactly easy to bend the lie of a hybrid but thought about flatten the lie to reduce the hook a bit. Get a Pro model hybrid. Or get a 5 or 7 wood...  Thoughts?    Yes I’m down to a 1.5 handicap, and shouldn’t really need equipment help... but I’m an adult and don’t know everything.
    • Similar to last  year I am looking to break 90 and then eventually 85 this year. My previous round was a 92 and I am improving.
