Default Cops have my hookah

So some friends and i were posted in a forrest smoking hookah, and apparently someone called the cops.. Well my friends are all 17 years old. The cops had just pulled me over a week before for threatening some kid.

Anyways. they took it, recognized me for the crime last week, and took my hookah, 5 cans of sheesh, and my cell phone laying on the ground as evidence...

I am so not down for these coppers.

Sounds like really crappy luck, but technically at 17, you should not be smoking so it's completely within their right to confiscate your hookah and any tobacco.

Yup. even if your not 17, you were still letting minors smoke your tobacco. Sucks but it's fair.

I was in a car with 4 other people and there was a small bottle of open vodka no one had anything to drink that night but we all got nailed with possession of alcohol while under the age of 21.

Open bottle law.

I don't have an issue with police confiscating tobacco from minors and in fact I fully approve. Assisting minors in breaking the law is an extremely bad idea and I condemn such conduct totally.

This sounds pretty unreasonable to me. I know the law varies from state to state, in some states you can't purchase tobacco but it's not against the law to use tobacco if you are under the legal age. In some laws it's illegal to both purchase and use tobacco. I guess you just got nabbed by the wrong officer for letting people under the legal age use your hookah, that really sucks. Hopefully you'll be able to get it back some day and until your friends are of a legal age, be very very careful about who you smoke with and where.

I'd like to add that you have to be 16 to hold a cigarette in your hand (or something like that).

You did the wrong thing and got caught. No need to complain about the police doing their job. Be a manly man and accept responsibility and learn from it.

California State law prohibits tobacco possession by minors unfortunately, so you definitely broke the law. While California is not as bad as some states, it is definitely one of the more tobacco regimented states. In my opinion you should be thankful they didn't tack on fines for having ignited material and flammables in a California forest area, or counted each minor with you as a separate offense. I'd get a lawyer and head to court to get the nasty bits drummed down so you can still join the military then try to stay under the radar until you're cleared. Third offense within 12 weeks I believe gets your license suspended and some mandatory community service.
