The cop tried to give me a ticket for the smell of cannabis

When I’m at work, I can’t smoke weed in the restaurant. I have to go somewhere outside of the building to get high. Friday night was an extraordinarily busy day at the restaurant and I only got a couple of opportunities to go outside for a break. During one of those opportunities, I decided to smoke a half of a joint that was sitting in the side door of my car. I smoked the entire rest of the joint and I felt pretty good when I went back to work. I have a little bit more energy and I was genuinely feeling less anxious. We still had a whole boredom of orders that needed to be filled, but I didn’t mind after getting high. I left work about 3 hours later. I was no longer feeling any effect from the marijuana that I smoked earlier. I was driving 50 mph in an area that was only 45 and an officer decided to pull me over for speeding. I told the officer that I was on my way home from a late shift at the restaurant. I even told the guy the name of the place. He told me that he could smell weed in my car and he tried to give me a ticket for smoking marijuana in my vehicle. I told the officer that I had used marijuana earlier, but I assured him that I was no longer high. The officer still gave me a ticket, but I’ve been assured that it will not hold up in court. Since he didn’t see me smoking or find weed in my car, it can’t be proven.
