That Moment When a Policeman Thinks Pokémon Players are Drug Dealers

Unless for the past week you have cut yourself off from the rest of the world and have been in your basement getting stoned, drinking soda, eating pizza, and vegging out on Netflix, you have probably heard of Pokémon Go. This augmented reality game was designed to get people up and moving while providing technologically based entertainment but now has people wondering the streets like zombies.

This AR game is accessed utilizing your mobile phone and the main objective is to catch Pokémon strategically placed in places around the world. When looking through your mobile phone thanks to your phone’s camera the AR reality game allows you to see other Pokémon  players in the alternate world. As you can only imagine this has made the news more than once.

A Reddit user went to the internet to share his strange and unusual story associated with Pokémon Go which has gained the attention of the cannabis community. This individual stated that while he was out hunting for Pokémon using this game he came in contact with two other individuals who gave him a tip for finding an Onyx in the game. He ended up chatting with these individuals for a while and being that it was 3 a.m. and they were in a public park it drew the attention of a police officer.

This police officer thought that the individuals were conducting a sale of marijuana but after an extensive explanation of the situation and the game no one was arrested and the cop ended up downloading the game as well. I don’t know what’s worse the fact that three individuals can’t just be hanging out in a park at 3 a.m. talking without being suspected of being drug dealers or the fact that people are out wandering the streets at 3 a.m. looking for virtual characters that do not even really exist and their not high.
