T hat said, I won't be hauling my girlfriend's roommate off anytime soon. My department, like many, frowns on off-duty arrests for all but the most serious crimes. Were I to interrupt my dinner dates to make arrests for unlawful possession of marijuana, I would probably get laughed out of my office.
But nor could I sit idle while Ms. Roommate toked up. A cop is a cop 24 hours a day, and even when I'm off duty, I find it difficult to observe drug use nonchalantly. That's why, as my girlfriend dressed and her roommate consumed her "Chinese food" on the roof, I found myself hitting the redial button on their phone pad, trying to get the number of the delivery service.
