Pizza Delivery Man From Papa John's Turns In Aurora Pot User

Papa Johns delivery driver turns in pot smokerAURORA - A man who ordered a pizza after using medical marijuana got more than he bargained for when the delivery man called police.

The pizza delivery man says he called police because he was worried about the welfare of a 9-year-old child in the house.

Frederick Smith tells KUSA-TV he has a medical marijuana permit because of pain he suffered in a bicycle accident. Police investigated and left without filing any charges.

The delivery company, Papa John's of Colorado, says the delivery man was acting as a concerned citizen and it stands behind him. The delivery man was not identified.

"The pizza delivery man says he called police because he was worried about the welfare of a 9-year-old child in the house." - Would he have felt the same way if the guy was drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes in front of the 9-year-old? Alcohol and tobacco are so much more harmful than marijuana, yet they are legal for recreational use and marijuana is not... I'm sure Papa Johns has lost a large portion of their customers because of this. I know they've lost my business...

What's with the stock image of a scruffy bearded, bad skin, dirty nailed guy? It implies something of the character of the man without backing it with facts - and there are so many other images available from the same source.

Smoking pot in front of your 9 year old son shows A LACK OF CHARACTER. You are not normal.

Is drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes in front of your children ok? If you've done that, you are a hypocrite.

I hope Papa John's goes out of business because of their stupidity. Turning in their most loyal customer base, stoners?!? That's just dumb. And they are obnoxiously using the "It's for the children!" line, which makes me even angrier! Truly a bad BAD idea, Papa John's! What's next? Issuing firearms and badges to your delivery people??!?

Since Papa John's has stuck both feet in their mouth lets send a slice of their pizza to a lab to see how much (cr*p) is really in it. Also, lets create a fund to buy people free pizzas somewhere else if they won't patronize their business. That's what a (dumb) corporation gets when they throw down on our constitutional rights, like the little one against unreasonable search and, citizens acting as defacto agents for the government. For the drug counselors and parents who still believe in the failed mantra of "Be a parent, not a friend. A friend is an enabler" well, study psychiatry. What you get are kids who lie to you. "No mommy, I would never do such a thing" and thus, you get to live in a world of bliss where your kid isn't doing drugs or having sex. Get ready for a surpise because the day is coming where the American public will view the socalled anti-drug anti-pot people as the true enemy.

The smoking bans are expanding to private homes in some areas. This guy will have a field day when people can be arrested for smoking cigarettes at home.

Give Papa Johns a break, at least they make a decent pizza.The worst thing they did was try to distance themselves and not take a side either way.
At least they are not nearly as conservative as some pizza conglomerates.
