Stoned Dude Calls Cops on Himself, Is Found Surrounded With Doritos

When getting the munchies goes wrong.

Getting stoned and gorging on junk food is practically a national pastime for many of America's youth. The time-honored tradition went terribly wrong for a dude in Ohio, however: According to Cleveland's WJW, a 22-year-old called 911 last Friday and told the operator he was "too high" on marijuana.

When the cops arrived, they reportedly discovered him lying "in a fetal position" groaning and surrounded by "a plethora of Doritos, Pepperidge Farm Goldfish and Chips Ahoy cookies." He told the officers he "could not feel his hands," then gave them the keys to his car where they found drugs and drug paraphenalia; he's now facing possession charges.

When toking up in a state where weed is illegal, smokers would be wise to maintain discretion. Nonetheless, that didn't stop a guy in New Jersey who had weed in his pocket from asking a cop to give him a ride to Burger King. Meanwhile in Colorado, the first state to embrace legal recreational marijuana, authorities recently ruled that THC-infused edibles can no longer resemble real food after several highly publicized instances in which they were accidentally ingested by children.

Hear the 911 call for yourself below, and remember: Always know your dealer, and never take more than you can handle.
