Rochester Police made two marijuana arrests on Aug. 31, according to the department. 

At 5 p.m. on Aug. 31, a Rochester officer patrolling the area of Second and Main stopped a dark grey Hyundai that nearly caused an accident while attempting to turn south on Main from eastbound Second, the department indicated. 

The officer found the 29-year-old Brighton man driving the car had a suspended license and a marijuana pipe was retrieved from his pants pocket, the department indicated. A small amount of marijuana also was recovered near the center console of the car.

The officer arrested the man on charges of possession of marijuana, paraphernalia and driving with a suspended license. He was released and given citations for the charges. 

At 8:30 p.m. on Aug. 31, a Rochester officer was following a vehicle southbound on Main Street near Romeo that had a defective brake light, according to the department. The officer ran the plate and found the owner of the vehicle had a suspended license, so the officer stopped the driver on University at Pine.

The driver, a Rochester Hills man, had an expired license, the department indicated. While speaking with the driver, the officer noticed the smell of burnt marijuana coming from the vehicle. The officer recovered a small amount of marijuana and part of a marijuana cigarette in a cellophane wrapper from the vehicle, according to the department. 

The officer arrested the man on charges of use of marijuana, failure to display a valid license and defective equipment. He was later released.

All card-carrying members of the DEA need to read: Shoulda Robbed a Bank Here is one of its reviews: 5.0 out of 5 stars... If David Sedaris had written 'Catcher in the Rye'..this would be it, June 30, 2012 Amazon Verified Purchase This review is from: Shoulda Robbed a Bank (Kindle Edition) I have never smoked pot in my life...nor do I ever care to. I read about this book in numerous Huffington Post comments. Thought I would read it because I know nothing about marijuana or the people involved with it. I am ecstatic that I did. Funny, Funny, Funny!!! The chapters are like short stories. Stories about unloading boats with helicopters, close encounters with law enforcement, traveling through the jungles of South America. The chapter about the author's first time smoking marijuana made me feel like I was with him...coughing. All of the characters were just a group of loveable, nice guys and girls. Not what I had been raised to believe...hysterical maniacs high on pot bent on death and mayhem. They were nothing like that. If you have ever read any of David Sedaris' books, and like them...you will love Shoulda Robbed a Bank. And the crazy things happening reminded me of Holden Caufield in 'Catcher in the Rye' and the way he staggered through life. The way the words are put together are like nothing I have ever heard. I am sure I will use many of the sayings found in this book just to dazzle my friends. A terrific read. I love this book.
