Weed? Very professional editorial skills you have here. Try "Marijuana".

That should have been in quotation marks. That's how it was written in the police log.

It is only a matter of time before it is legal...and the entire state will be in a cloud of smoke. I personally don't smoke, and find the odor of marijuana to be quite disgusting...but, just like cigarettes, we are going to just have to learn to deal with it. Like it or not, when it becomes legal, smokers will (and should) have rights too.
