Pot and popsicles?


July readers are having fun with a story about a 34-year-old Spring Hill man being accused of of smoking pot inside his ice cream truck. He told deputies he smoked a small amount of marijuana and drank at least five beers while in a parking lot waiting to pick up his children.

Some took issue  with the headline "Deputies say pot and popsicles don't mix."

"It wasn't the pot that slurred his speech and made him a danger to himself and others. It was the 5 beers, yet your headline emphasized the pot. Shame on your misleading choice of headline," Pete wrote.

Steve called it a waste: " Another instace of cops wasting their time on stupid things.  This is why I had to wait 3 hours after a hit and run."

Greg's take: "The only thing that would make this story more interesting is if he had a clown outfit on and was throwing start pops at the cops."

Join the conversation: Waste of time for cops or scary scene altogether?
