Dispatch: Man Can’t See After Smoking Marijuana for the First Time

MarijuanaArlington County police and paramedics responded to an unusual call at a Crystal City apartment building yesterday evening.

Around 5 p.m., a man who claimed to have just smoked marijuana for the first time called 911 and said he couldn’t see and was having difficulty breathing.

He was evaluated by medics and voluntarily handed over the pot to police, according to scanner traffic.

Authorities were a bit skeptical about part of his claim, however. It was noted that the same guy — or, at least, someone at the same apartment — had called 911 on March 28 and reported breathing troubles after smoking weed for the first time.
