A North Little Rock man was arrested this week after entering the Pulaski County sheriff’s office bearing “a very strong odor of marijuana,” deputies said.

Leotis Rodgers had visited the sheriff’s office Records Division window to pick up a report when workers noticed the smell, according to a sheriff’s office report.

As a deputy passed by Rodgers, the North Little Rock man started to leave the building. Once he exited, the report said, he “started a slow jog” to his vehicle.

The deputy, who had followed Rodgers out of the building, told him that he could smell marijuana emanating from his person, and Rodgers responded that he had “just smoked a ‘blunt’” before visiting the sheriff’s office, the report said.

In searching Rodgers’ vehicle, the deputy found a clear plastic bag with fourteen other “baggies” inside it that contained suspected marijuana, the report said.

Rodgers, 31, was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana with the purpose of delivery and possession of a controlled substance within close proximity to certain facilities, deputies said.

He was released from jail on $10,000 bond.

Isn't pot illegal and banned? Wait, when you ban and criminalize things then that makes people stop doing them, right? I'm confused. Surely if you pass more laws then people won't break them.

Pat, Pat, Pat... It's a one way street.

It's ok for banks to rob us but we can't rob banks, ok? This guy just thought he was in Colorado. Easy mistake to make after smoking a 'blunt.'

Well I feel a lot safer now knowing that the Police are doing such a good job keeping non-violent offenders off the streets . It's a shame they can't seem to do the same with the violent ones........

If smelling like pot had been reasonable cause for search that could lead to an arrest practically everyone on my college campus would have been arrested back in the day.

" a clear plastic bag with fourteen other “baggies” inside it that contained suspected marijuana, the report said."

Further proof that marijuana makes you dumb (kills or impairs the brain). You know you are going to the sheriff's office to conduct business, you don't stoke up on weed just before you go in, and you certainly are ignorant for bringing along your inventory... Stupid stupid stupid.
