A bag of a leafy green material believed to be marijuana was seen on the passengers side seat.

I think people who are stoned all the time are confused by all the post-election talk of legal marijuana. Let's give 'em a break, or a bag of Doritos at least!

Doritos are so fattening! Stoners should try to eat something healthier like fruit.
