Comment: I heard this story a few years ago,and I believe that if it has'nt,it will,over time,eventually take on 'Urban Legend' proportions-

Two guys went to northern Vermont to pick up a forty pound shipment of marijunana,and hid it inside the door panels of their car. Of course,once on the road they had to try some of it,getting 'stoned' and eventually a case of the 'munchies'. So,they found a Mc Donalds and stopped and purchased four or five 'Happy Meals' to eat on their way back. They were having such a good time eating their food with the radio blasting,that they didn't realize that they were 'speeding',and soon found themselves being followed by a Vermont State Trooper with his lights flashing and siren wailing.

Once he pulled them over,the Trooper looked inside the car to see food scattered everywhere. Hamburgers and cheeseburgers and french fries were all over the inside of the vehicle. When questioned about the food,the driver explained that they had just been acting silly and had had a 'food fight'. The driver then produced his license and registration,and the officer asked if they were carrying any weapons or drugs,of course,the driver answered 'No'.

Suspecting something was amiss,the Trooper asked the driver for permission to search the car,but the driver refused saying,"I don't have anything in the car,so why do you want to search it?" The Trooper replied that if he didn't have anything 'illegal' in the vehicle,then why would'nt it be alright for them to search the car? They went back and forth like this,until finally,the Trooper called for a K-9 Unit to search the vehicle anyway.

Now,the two guys were very concerned,and beginning to panic,as they realized that the dog would more than likely smell the pot and they would be arrested and be facing serious jail time. But,when the K-9 Unit arrived and the officer brought the dog over to the car,the dog immediately started eating all of the food that was spread throughout the car! The officer could'nt stop the dog from eating long enough to get him to concentrate on searching the car,and after several minutes the two cops finally gave up. It was then that the two men realized that things were'nt going to be as bad as they had originally thought.

In the end,the Trooper let them off with just a 'warning',and they went on their way. But,from that day on,neither of them would ever eat at any place but Mc Donalds,feeling that it was the food from that restaurant that had saved them from prison.

Unfortunately, in order for a story to become an urban legend, it has to actually be interesting. Sorry.

I think it's a cool story to relate to your 'stoner' friends while they're 'stoned' and trying to get you 'stoned', but. . . a drug sniffing dog would 'hit' on the hidden dope before discovering the free food. The k-9 'officer' would have his 'probable cause' for an arrest, then decide if he'd let the dog chew up the 'evidence' of his probable cause for the search.

'Egad' sometimes I wonder what these 'people' are thinking when they type these 'urban ledgends'.

Now if they had gotten the dog 'high', were arrested by the 'police' because of 'stupidity', or it turned out the 'policeman' was the person who sold them the 'drugs' in the first place, then it would be more 'interesting.'

Ja'So maybe the apostrophie stuff isn't funny after several other people do it, but 'oh well'...'ck

Comment: Thank you for your prompt response. I have found 'Snopes' report on this
'Rumor' and how false it is. I have advised the 'Senders' to check with
'Snopes' before distributing such 'Crap'

I think there's a pattern here. The quoted words are:

'Snopes'
'Rumor'
'Senders'
'Snopes'
'Crap'

Ah, 'Snopes rumors senders Snopes crap.' I think it's actually a clever code (or a very nasty insult) [Big Grin]

Except that it would be 'illegal' to 'detain' the vehicle for the time it took the 'dog' to 'get there', unless there was already 'reasonable suspicion.'

It would not, 'however,' be illegal to 'detain' them for the amount of time it takes to run the 'plates' and 'criminal history reports.' And if the K-9 unit 'arrives' before those checks 'are' done, then they can 'take' a quick sniff.
