How far would you go to help a friend? That is an easy question in answer as a hypothetical, because there is nothing at risk… Recently I was put into a real situation with serious consequences, and I had to decide whether or not to help my old pal Mike! I have known Mike for a few years now, and while my friend and I are not the best of friends my friend and I have developed a strong bond, then mike is my pot dealer, so I visit with him once a week or so, and over the years we’ve become somewhat close, however even with our history, I was startled when she showed up at my household one night, unannounced, she asked me for help, and handed me a duffel bag with roughly ten pounds of cannabis in it.
She explained that the cops had showed up while in her large cannabis buy, and arrested a few people there.
Mike had escaped, however she believed the cops would be looking for him, and honestly coming to her house. She couldn’t think of somewhere else to hide the cannabis besides my house. I haven’t mentioned this yet, but I am a cop. I am a cop who happens to prefer cannabis, but I’m still a cop. I knew I should arrest Mike on the spot, but instead I took the cannabis from him and promised to hide it, then I made him leave, because hiding some cannabis was one thing, but harboring a fugitive was a much bigger deal. Mike did get arrested, but since they couldn’t locate the cannabis they had to let him go.
