As a result of this headline in today’s Inquirer.net, “8 nabbed in pot session inside a police vehicle in Quezon,” I surmised the article would reveal eight cops smoking weed in a police car. Therefore, when I read the actual account, I discovered the eight lawbreakers weren’t policemen at all. They were eight incredibly stupid young people.
8 Potheads Pinched Smoking in Quezon Police Car
Jovert de la Peña and seven of his buddies, all minors, were reportedly caught in the act while smoking “weed” inside a parked police vehicle in Tayabas City. The police car was undergoing repair work in an auto shop. The incident occurred early Monday morning around 1:10 a.m.
Tayabas City, located in Quezon province, has a population of around 100,000. Evidently, the potheads were extremely bored or already stoned. Maybe the conversation went like this:
“Hey, dudes, check out that police car over there. Let’s go inside and smoke some reefer, huh.”
The article said that Jovert was a farmer. I’m sure the article wasn’t implying that all farmers smoke pot. However, I would suspect that some farmers do use marijuana though I doubt they do so in police cars.
Police seized one small glass tube containing 2.45 grams of weed, cigarette papers, and marijuana smoking paraphernalia from the suspects.

The local police station had received a tip from an alarmed citizen about an ongoing pot session.
Categorized, as “children in conflict with the law,” were the seven minors. They were referred to the Women and Children Protection Desk. We used to describe such scofflaws as “juvenile delinquents.”
Provided with luxurious accommodations at the city police jail was farmer De la Peña.
No word as to who was minding the farm now.
