A Papa John’s pizza delivery driver in Colorado called the police on one of his customers after smelling marijuana smoke coming from resident Frederick Smith’s house:
The man was smoking medical marijuana just before the pizza arrived on Friday evening. The delivery driver smelled the marijuana and called the cops. The Papa John’s employee, who was not identified, was concerned because the customer’s 9-year-old daughter was in the house.
Police went ahead and investigated the house, but left without filing any charges. And the irony is not lost on some commenters, who note that pot smoking and pizza often go hand in hand.
Still, Smith said he considering filing charges of “slander” against Papa John’s and the driver, claiming that his daughter was not in the room while he was smoking the marijuana. In the meantime, Papa John’s is standing by their driver, saying he was doing what any concerned citizen would in a similar situation, saying in a statement:
“Papa John’s of Colorado wants to stand behind the decision that this delivery driver made. He was acting as a concerned citizen and for what he believes was the best interests of our community.”
