they are so inclined, in Oregon that would require them to call the FBI because that joint is legal in Oregon. The FBI does not want to hear about your joint. They just don't.

In keeping with Louisiana's habitual offenders law, Noble, who had two prior cocaine possession charges and a prior marijuana possession charge (he admits that he was a coke addict in the 90s), was sentenced to a staggering 13 and 1/3 years in prison for simple marijuana possession, a nonviolent offense."

I'm told that the Southern States are super groovy but to me these wildly racist pot laws are a rather major issue.
