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

    • Played my first round away from my home course yesterday and snuck into two birdies on holes 4 (par-3) and 10 (par-4). 🙂  Started composite stats now. 
    • @Billy Z is going to lose his 💩 when he sees this. 😉
    • Wrapped up another great trip to Erie, which means as usual I have a lot of homework to do. There's a lot of stuff (unsurprisingly) that @iacas has told me in the past that I'm still struggling with, like needing to be more calm and focused before every shot. Bear in mind if you do read this that these are my feels. Putting Erik checked my aim fairly early on. I do have an Edel putter, so the aim wasn't too bad. It was simply twisted slightly open at address. We also moved the ball back about half a ball and shifted my posture a little upright to get my eyes inside the ball. We did make a mechanical change to my stroke, as I swung the putter with my chest, essentially rotating my trunk around. Erik showed me how to swing the putter by keeping my sternum relatively still and letting my arms swing more around my body. The biggest change we implemented is putting with a purpose. As in, I wasn't really doing it. There were times on the course where my distance control was great and others when it was absolutely atrocious, with no real explanation. We figured out that I was basically spaced out and not really putting, just hitting the ball basically. We worked on some preshot stuff to feel the distance and for me to envision the hole as I make my stroke, to keep the target in focus the entire time. Short Game Mostly stuff I've already been taught. Softer arms in pitching, trust the pivot. I tend to use my arms too much and when I quiet them down, I don't allow myself to pivot fast enough because I'm worried I'll hit the ball too far so I end up hitting everything short. Trust the pivot. Chipping is less wrist hinge, butt of club stays pointing to my belly button. Need to be more calm before the shot. I also need to learn to use different clubs to vary trajectory. Full Swing I'll write this in a separate post. It's getting late and I don't want to do this section injustice by writing something up quickly.
