Pizza Delivery Guy Calls Cops on Customer For Smoking Pot

Medical marijuana is legal in Colorado, as the result of a constitutional amendment passed in 2000. In 2005, Denver passed an ordinance legalizing adult possession of up to an ounce of medical marijuana. Because the state has not followed suit, and still criminalizes non-medical possession by a $100 fine, in 2007, Denver passed an ordinance designating private adult marijuana possession the city's "lowest law enforcement priority." A city panel was to be created to ensure the ordinance was implemented "to the greatest extent possible."

Papa John's is a local pizza delivery company. On Friday night, a customer who lived in Aurora, a city next to Denver, ordered a pizza from Papa Johns. The delivery guy called the police after dropping off the pizza because he smelled marijuana at the house. The delivery guy said he was concerned because the man's daughter was in the house.

The customer had a valid medical marijuana card. The Aurora police came to his house on a child welfare check. They searched his house. No charges were filed. Papa John's says their delivery guy did the right thing. [More...]

"Papa John's of Colorado wants to stand behind the decision that this delivery driver made. He was acting as a concerned citizen and for what he believes was the best interests of our community."

It is not illegal for medical marijuana patients to smoke pot at home. They aren't required to choose between being a live-in parent and a pot smoker. If this had happened in Denver, as opposed to Aurora, would police have reacted the same way? Maybe yes, maybe no, but clearly they shouldn't. How ridiculous that a few blocks separates what's appropriate and inappropriate police action.

In addition, with companies like Papa John's backing up such actions by their employees, no one is really safe, so long as police can claim marijuana justifies a "welfare check."

What's the answer? The state of Colorado needs to pass a full legalization bill like Denver did. There's one in the works that hopefully will be on the ballot next November, called the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Initiative. A signature drive is in progress.

Here is the text of the initiative. It makes the adult use of marijuana legal and establishes a system in which marijuana is regulated and taxed similarly to alcohol. It also allows for the cultivation of industrial hemp. In other words, it removes all legal penalties for personal possession of up to one ounce of marijuana and for the home-growing of up to six marijuana plants, similar to the number allowed under current medical marijuana laws.

If passed, Colorado will be the first state in the nation to fully legalize adult use of marijuana. Under federal law, while it's still a misdemeanor to possess marijuana, it is not a crime to use it.

If you live in Colorado, help make it happen, and prevent the Papa John's of the state from causing more disruption in the lives of law-abiding residents. Otherwise, the next house receiving that knock on the door could be yours.

    the human kind, that is, and they don't deserve anyone's business.

    Speaking as a former Domino's delivery driver, I can say we ran into pot-smoking all the time.  It was a major source of our late-night business.  We even devised ways of screening out the ones who sounded too stoned to remember placing the order or would have been sleeping by the time we arrived.  And then there were the delivery addresses with the unlighted-stairwell and armor-plated door, where you never saw the recipient's face, just the cash.  Everyone knew they were dealers.  Other places with clouds of smoke wafting out when they answered to accept delivery, and offering us a toke while they collected the money.  (I passed, but thanked them for their generous offer.) Hell, some of our drivers were burning rope in their cars - as opposed to tobacco smokers like me - while rushing to make their deliveries.  (My stint was in the middle of the Reagan administration, so I'm sure that part of the job has changed since.)

    This tool in a Papa John's hat hurt the business, and the franchisee's backing his rat-dom and encouraging more of the same, should result in all right-thinking pizza buyers getting theirs elsewhere.

    pot is not "heavy drug use".

    When I see someone drinking a beer, I do not generally assume they are also using other drugs.  I don't see why the same logic wouldn't apply here.  Especially since the state has relatively lax rules.

    As a pizza delivery business model, you probably don't want to antagonize people who smoke pot.  I imagine they make up a significant percentage of the pizza eating customer base.

    I don't really blame the delivery guy, there is a certain cultural stigma to "illegal" and he probably just doesn't know better. That's why we need to change the laws.  So people stop reacting to it like it is the same thing as heroin.

    ... this is about the cops over-reacting.  For all we know the driver is a kid whose parents have brainwashed him into thinking... whatever.

    We cannot have cops showing up on tips from 'concerned citizens' for christ sake.  Tips are tips, not search warrants.  They should be evaluated, not taken as fact.  This reminds of that coward on the plane who grew a pair, acting on his own distorted facts, which were obviously wrong as wrong could be.  I am tired of cops not doing what they are paid to do.

    They are basically saying anyone who has access to your home is a reliable enough source to send in the the real cops, that is unacceptable.

    The market should correct this BS.  If I were say Pizza Hut, I would start a campaign something like "Our drivers will not invade your privacy".  Not saying pizza eaters are of a certain group, well yes I am saying that 'MM' users like pizza, a lot, and cashing in on Papa John's stupidity would seem like the smart play here.  Go global, enough is enough with the concerned idiots.

    You can think the guy has a right to his pot for medical uses, but someone was concerned for a child - and since pot is not good for anyone (as chemicals being ingested into your lungs is never good, despite what groups like NORML want to tell you), it is definitely not good for a child.

    Has never witnessed a speeder or a jaywalker or an underage drinker.  Why don't I believe you.  All crimes you didn't report, or do you mean real crimes, but, but, MM smoking is legal, but, but... Save your I live in Wonderland euphoria, you don't.

    But that isn't the point, the point is the cops should have more proof than a tip, what if I tell them you are dealing crack, what would you expect?  I would expect an investigation that would lead to the conclusion that I am not.  I do not expect them to show up and prove I am not dealing crack.

    And prescription medication is what this is, do I have to fear taking my asthma meds or how about oxy when the pizza guy shows up and my nephew is in town.  It is illegal if I don't have a script, but the pizza guy shouldn't be making that call, nor should the police.  That is beyond stupid, much like the police action in this case.  I, like you, like this guy, have a right to feel secure in my home, and like everyone keeps forgetting, he didn't break the law.

    And in case you don't know, it's not illegal to take any drug, including smoking, it's illegal to posses them.  Not the same, so quite saying it is.

    And again, MM smoke is cool so long as the smoke is the legal kind, if it had been illegal smoke, even though the smoke is the exact same, this would have been a very different outcome.  That is beyond insanity, it's rightwing moronic twists of logic that one must make.  But the children, right, this is about the kids, not the MM smokers ?  Sure it is.  Somehow illegal smoke is bad, and legal smoke is fine, WTF ?

    'Better safe than sorry' is grandma's motto in regards to crossing the street, not exactly how the law in this country is exercised.  That could mean rounding everyone up and only letting people out that can prove they aren't criminals.  It's a rather dumb thing to say in regards to cops showing up at a law abiding citizen's home.

    for a father. I have to say, I wish my Dad, who was a mean and violent drunk, had been a pothead instead.

    Given that I was brutally beaten by my father on a regular basis and often went to school with welts caused by his belt running up and down the backs of my legs, I definitely fall on the side of reporting parents for abuse. Sadly for me, no one ever reported my Dad. No one even asked me about my bruised and beaten body. So, I am a big supporter of any and all efforts to get people to report their suspicions of child abuse.

    That said, how one defines abuse is critical. If the delivery guy had seen bruises and welts on the child, if the house was a pig sty (not messy or dusty, but filled with garbage), if there was any indication of molestation, then making the call to the police should have been a no-brainer. Evidence of marijuana, however, does not rise to the level of child abuse or neglect.

    A sad fact of our country these days is that I'm willing to bet a report of actual physical abuse or appallingly filthy conditions would not have inspired the cops to head out to that house with such haste. No, they might have filed a report with child services, or maybe just told the pizza guy to call child services, but they would not have rushed to the home.

    My dad could get mean when he was hittin' the sauce hard, more so to my mom, but never laid an angry finger on me. He was my hero, warts and all, and truly a great father.

    I agree way back in the day signs of domestic and child abuse were ignored far too often, but I fear we've swung the pendulum too far the other way with hyper-reporting and "spy on your neighbors" culture that leads to good parents being investigated and hassled because of some dime dropper.  I've read horror stories of kids being removed from loving if unconventional homes, which is a form of traumatic child abuse all its own.  Barring severe abuse or neglect children belong with their parents.  State custody is no prize either.  No easy answers.

    And as I mentioned earlier without a reply form the 'all for it' crowd.  Why does the legalness of the smoke make a difference.  If kids are present, apparently in Colorado, they will come and if the smoke was bought legally, they will leave.  One has to assume because they went there, that had it been illegal smoke, the outcome would have been different.

    Pretty sure if they cared about the welfare of the child, the legalness of the smoke would not have mattered.

    Comparing the smell of MM to witnessing child neglect is a stretch even for the most starch anti-MM crowd.

    So now I should worry about taking my asthma meds or drinking beer in front of the pizza guy when my nephew visits, or are we focusing in on one particular drug, because that sure as hell seems like what's happening.

    Oh, and by the way, since it's legal now apparently pot smoke is OK, only if it was illegal pot would there be a concern here.  Stupid, stupid, stooooooopid.

    Operation TIPS, where the last part is an acronym for the Terrorism Information and Prevention System, was a domestic intelligence-gathering program designed by President George W. Bush to have United States citizens report suspicious activity. The program's website implied that US workers who had access to private citizens' homes, such as cable installers and telephone repair workers, would be reporting on what was in people's homes if it were deemed "suspicious."

    They actually levitate 4 inches,

    About $3? I hope that was not the motivation.

    Pot smokers and beer drinkers make up 30% of Pappa John's customer demographic. I order at least 40 pizzas a year from Papa Johns but not anymore. I don't smoke pot because I cannot write when I am high, but I have friends who do. I am taking my business to Dominos where they respect the constitution of the United States. They should go ahead a fire the guy. It's not like he can ever go on a delivery again. There are too many people waiting to kick his ass.

    I'll take your promise to start buying from Domino's as a joke... considering that the owner of Domino's is a pro-life whack-job.
