    In 49 states it's illegal to smoke marijuana in your own house. The exception is Alaska.

    If the police get a call that there is illegal activity going on in your house they will investigate. They can come to your door and knock. If you open the door and they see drugs or drug paraphernalia or smell marijuana smoke, that provides probable cause that a crime is being committed. To prevent you from destroying evidence they may enter at that point. While detaining you they'll get a search warrant.

    Without probable cause or a search warrant the police may not enter your house unless you invite them in.

    I don't understand the question.

    Your profile says you're 50 years old. Why exactly would you be worried about being charged with underage smoking?

    You must be worried about you kid, right bighomey55? ;) ;) {Nudge, Nudge}

    Anyway, why don't you ask Phuzz01 or Nightshift, our two police officers (that we know of) who give excellent advice. Check out the sticky at the top of this board. Phuzz01 has already made a thread that you can ask this question on. Ask there.

    Most of your questions were answered in my first reply to the question.

    Possession of less than an ounce of marijuana is a misdemeanor in California. There is no prison time and a maximum of a $100 fine. For a first offense you will not get a criminal record. It's like a traffic ticket.

    Enforcement varies from place to place - I can't tell you how it's enforced in your area. What the officer would do depends on a lot of things, from nothing to confiscating your weed to giving you a summons to appear in court. For less than an ounce you can't be arrested.

    He has probable cause to arrest you.

    No he doesn't...he has probable cause to write him a ticket. In california, you cannot be "arrested" for possession of less than an oz of marijuana...he can write him a ticket, but he won't be arrested.

    This post is simply rediculous. you obviously don't have a clue as to what your rights are concerning searches, or of the law in general. Warrents are needed for all but a very few situations. Survalliance or being watched does NOT exempt the police from needing a warrent whatsoever. :rolleyes:

    and a Cop knocked because . . .

    Cop knocks at your door randomly? I don't think so. A police officer's only going to make contact with you for some reason - loud music, neighbor's complaint, an investigation - and that is what he/she will want to discuss with you. That you just smoked a bowl is going to put you in an awkward position because some other asshattery has brought them to you. The first step is to pass the attitude test - and that means don't dish out the attitude.

    You might not believe this but the average police officer is not that interested in minor league dope-smoking. Frankly, they are pretty busy, given the limited budgets most departments have, and often collateral duties (training officer, union steward, committee member) that take their time. So they have priorities and Weed is generally not one of them.

    Here's a good rule of thumb: keep your smoking on the down low, don't commit other asshattery, be a good neighbor and you will never have trouble with the police and pot in your home.

    I kinda had the same paranoid question of my own. What if I was smoking pot in my house, and the pohpoh show up? But then I thought...

    "Spray BF's axe or my own perfume." " Burn insence and open a window" "Hotbox my closet and burn a single insent in there"

    Why would cops jus show up? And unless they smell it on you, or in the house, they have no reason to serch. And as far as I know as long as they dont know your home you can just not answer the door. xD

    Just Be Normal

    Loud Music and people walking around the neighborhood, creates phone calls to the police. Be cool, as I know you are card board boxx, and you'll never need to know the answer.
