AUSTINTOWN — Township police were called to a home Friday night by a man who complained he was “too high” after smoking marijuana.

According to a police report, authorities were called to the 100 block of Westminister Avenue at about 5:20 p.m. Friday by a 22-year old male who had smoked the drug. The officer who responded to the home could hear the man groaning from a room.

The officer then found the man lying “on the floor in the fetal position” and “was surrounded by a plethora of Doritos, Pepperidge Farm Goldfish and Chips Ahoy cookies,” the report said. The man also told police he couldn’t feel his hands.

A glass pipe with marijuana residue, two packs of rolling papers, two roaches and a glass jar of marijuana were recovered from the man’s car after he gave the keys to police. The man declined medical treatment at the home Friday night.

Austintown police have not charged the man in the incident as of late Monday morning.

And he was proud to be stoned. Give him a couple of months jail time for so he can relay his experiences to other inmates. When he gets out send him the bill for the time law enforcement wasted on him.

Just curious, are you as ignorant as you sound? Honestly, your opinion on marijuana legalization doesn't matter here. You could be in strong opposition or in strong support, either way, let's start with this. He wasn't "proud to be stoned", where do you even get that idea from? He called emergency services for an emergency situation. Throwing someone in jail for using, arguably, one of the safest recreational drugs available is going to waste way more money than the response by police did. Which, by the way, he shouldn't be charged for because emergency services were doing their job.

Also, before you think I'm some huge stoner on the internet, I actually don't smoke weed. I hardly ever drink, as I actually hold a professional job where I have to take drug test semi regularly. I have a feeling your view points are very dependent on your age and general political stances. I guess I'm just asking you to do this for me, do research on drug usage in the United States. Actual, scientific research. Read about death rates of drugs, read about drug effects, read about "gateway" drug theories being disproven. People are going to do drugs, shouldn't harm reduction be the policy instead of "They smoked a plant that made them have a nervous break down because it's one of the safest recreational drugs known to man. They called emergency services for help. Throw them in jail and waste our already stretched resources on an absolutely harmless legal violation!!!!"

You'll probably never agree with me on any of this, but that's fine. Your opinion is quickly becoming the minority. Thank God. We were able to adapt our marriage laws (thanks SCOTUS) because society's view points are becoming more moralistic, maybe soon we'll be able to change our hierarchy of drug laws to aim more towards harm reduction than "imprison everyone!!!"

This is the funniest news story I've ever read.

@Excel go watch reefer madness a few more times and tune back in to fox news. Uneducated folks like yourself are the problem with this country.

He got sick because of all of the Monsanto GMO crap he ate.

Where did he get his herb?
