On April 2 at 5:17 p.m., Emory Police Department (EPD) responded to a call regarding possession of marijuana. The complainant, a Campus Life Professional (CLP), reported that he and a resident adviser (RA) were conducting floor checks in Few Hall when they smelled the odor of marijuana emanating from a dorm room. The CLP knocked on the door, and when no one responded, let himself into the room. The CLP and RA found two open grinders with marijuana in them, a plastic bag containing marijuana and several empty and filled containers of alcoholic beverages next to several prescription pill bottles. When the officer arrived at the scene, he took possession of the grinders and marijuana while the CLP and RA disposed of the alcohol. The two students returned to their room while the officer was still at the scene, and the officer asked to whom the grinders and marijuana belonged. Both students independently told the officer that they did not wish to answer the question. The officer cited the student whose desk was on the side of the room where the grinders and marijuana was found under City of Atlanta Ordinance A106-182, possession of one ounce or less of marijuana. A court date is scheduled for April 23.
