Same! I have lived in apartments where it came in through the walls and vents. Sometimes I wouldn’t realize it until I came in from outside and it would be really obvious. I didn’t want to have my son’s friends to my place because I was afraid if their parents could smell it they wouldn’t believe me.

I was an office worker, tested once on hiring and then ten yrs later. Quite often hair and skin products manufactured for people of color smell differently than those light-skinned people use due to differences in chemical makeup that their hair and skin require. These ignorant school officials were obviously NOT smelling marijuana, but something their stupid noses just weren’t familiar with. Pat Marchand, you’re right. Gerald Alspaugh a follow-up question I’d ask them would be doing it smell like smoke, as in they could smell the smoke on him, or did it just smell like cannabis? At the end of the day they screwed the kid for nothing really, he should be in school, but I’m curious as to what they thought they smelled. I read the article but I don’t remember it being specific about that. Pat Marchand, I remember thinking that a couple of my (white) teachers were drinking alcohol at work. I learned, much later that the odd smell on their breath was most likely a symptom of Diabetes. Good thing I didn’t go reporting them or anything. Dayton is an idiotic place. Also, a LOT of things smell like pot including burning sage, and some people think patchouli. And he tested neg. I hope the And into the book store I go to lose my mind and find my soul shirt ends up funding his college fund!
