A law enforcement official was surprised when a drug user offered him a hit after catching him smoking marijuana, according to police in Michigan.

Conservation Officer Steve Lockwood of the Department of Natural Resources, was patrolling in Gladwin County, when he smelled marijuana coming from a campsite.

Lockwood walked towards the smell, and noticed the suspect smoking a marijuana joint. The suspect began to laugh uncontrollably, and did not attempt to hide the illegal substance.

Lockwood then asked the suspect for a hit, and to the officer’s surprise, the man offered him the marijuana joint while he was still laughing.

Lockwood, who was in full police uniform, reported that he then took appropriate action against the suspect.
