I realize that possession of marihuana is illegal....but 0.1 of an ounce....I guess it was a very slow day!

Good work police!...getting this heinous criminal off the streets. Good thing you nabbed him before he smoked that stuff, otherwise he may have gone on an eating rampage...and possibly may have left his phone at the restaurant!
