Can you get a ticket if you get high and then go tell a cop?

Like you have nothing in your possesion but your still high?

Probably not.
He will search your shit and if he finds anything he will charge you for it.

It's a very dumb idea though.

It's not that dumb of an idea. The cop can probably give you a ticket for public intoxication, but other than that you're fine.

You will be searched. Why do you want to tell a cop?
I personally recommend checking oneself for OCD at least once every 5 minutes.

As long as your not driving tell the cop whatever you want. Although don't have anything on you or with you.

If your driving they could probably give you a DWI.

Doesn't that more or less apply to alcohol? I've walked passed lots of cops reeking like reefer, and nothing has ever been said. I've gotten strange looks and all, but why would they give you public intoxication for being ripped?

I was in Seattle and we were talking about when we knocked over my friend's hooka. I looked at my friend and said "Oh my god, but we were already sooo drunk and high when we did that" and didn't really realize there was a full uniform cop standing at my shoulder. He looked at me, laughed and walked the other way.

if you tell a police officer you are intoxicated (high) in public, you better believe you will get public intoxication.

if u walk by an officer smelling of weed, he can't get u for public intoxication because he doesn't know 100% that u are high, so you are fine.

if you are talking about events in the past ("oh man we were drunk and high") he can't do anything.

It would seem like he would have a good reason to be suspicious but he would have to have good proof in order to charge you. Similar to a sobriety test or a breathalizer for alcohol intoxication. I don't know if they have portable THC-breathalizers or what.

No, I seriously doubt you get public intoxication. Telling him you are high is enough for him to search you on probable cause but that's it.
