Heres the story. I was in a hurry today to finish up in my friends shop afterschool, and in the rush to get out to do some work, I left my backpack inside. My friend noticed this and put it out front of the shop for me to pick up later. I call him at around 11 and let him know I will be popping by to pick it up, on the way over I pass a squad car and think nothing of it.
I pick up my backpack and start riding home, I pass the squad car again. A few seconds later he flashed his lights at me, I stopped and walked up to him expecting to be *****ed out for not having a helmet on. Instead, I was questioned for 35 god damn minutes about everything he could think of. He was rooting around in my pack, going through my school supplies when he pulls out my welding torch body, claiming its a piece of drug paraphernalia. Everything from a crackpipe to a tool for making meth. For **** sakes, it even says 'IOxygen Listed SA8316 Welding Torch 6Z22 VM-221' on the side of it. He eventually let me on my way, but the way he was talking down to me and treating me like some criminal pissed me off in a way I haven't been in a long time.
This is the torch that apparently I can smoke rock through :
