Papa John's Delivery Guy Calls Cops on Marijuana-Smoking Customer
Frederick Smith: Papa John's Snitch Sparks Police Harassment
When Aurora, Colorado resident Frederick Smith called Papa John's Pizza for a delivery, he wasn't expecting to get a visit from the police.
Frederick Smith, a medical marijuana patient, had been smoking pot just before the pizza guy showed up. The delivery guy was quite the concerned citizen, and called the police due to the presence of Smith's nine-year-old daughter. (Follow-up question: did he see the daughter? How did he know she was home?)
The police showed up, determined that Smith had done nothing wrong, and left. Smith said that he was not smoking weed in front of his kid.
The link above includes a pop legal analysis, saying that Smith can't sue Papa John's over this, since the delivery guy was acting on his own, but this is a teaching moment all the same.
Look, if you run a pizza shop, don't let your delivery drivers get in the habit of calling the cops on stoners. That will put you out of business very quickly, as you'll have no customers left.
