Where There’s Smoke, There’s ... Pot

WHITEHALL, Pa. (AP) – Police in one Pittsburgh suburb have come up with a new twist on an old adage: Where there's smoke ... there's marijuana.

WPXI-TV reports Friday that Whitehall police cited a man for marijuana possession after they responded to a smoke alarm at his home about 6:30 p.m. Jan 15.

When police arrived, they didn't find a fire – but they did smell marijuana and questioned the man. Police say he admitted smoking pot, and police then found a small amount of the drug and some related paraphernalia.
