The deputy wrote in the criminal complaint that the vehicle smelled strongly of marijuana. When asked, Griffen said he had recently smoked marijuana and handed his pipe and grinder to the officer.
He showed signs of impairment during the field sobriety test, and agreed to allow the officer to perform a breath test, which came up as a .00 BAC. It was pretty obvious to the officer that he was under the influence of the marijuana.
