Poor guy was probably just getting ready to relax with a nice joint but the fuzz had to ruin his plans. But this encounter is a good lesson in a few things. First of all never admit to having pot in your car. The cops are not your friends and they will lie to you because they want to bust you. Secondly for fucks sake put your joint in the glove box!! Cops can peer into your car due to something called the “Plain View Doctrine”, any contraband that is in plain view can be held against you and they don’t need a warrant.
