Flash Fiction (a Hundred Words or Fewer) #41: Virtually Legal

“You’re under arrest for possession of marijuana.”

“What?  Come on, pot’s virtually legal.”

“That’s not the same as actually legal, now, is it?”

Another rich white boy, looking for cheap drugs in this neighborhood.  I could tell he was rich due to his tie-dyed T-shirt—a little too new-looking, like straight from a boutique.

So I arrested him.  Later, a couple scumbags almost beat him to death in the holding cell.  That bummed me out a little, I’ll admit; I was still a rookie.  But the law’s the law.  And he’ll have a story to tell.  Everyone needs a story.
