The cooperative pot smoker "had a good attitude" while being taken to jail, Officer Joe Arbie said.
Arbie was on routine patrol in the Key West cemetary Wednesday night when he noticed a faint smell of marijuana burning. He investigated and found two men sitting on rocks near the USS Maine Memorial.
As the officer approached one of the men got up and walked about 10 feet away. Arbie again smelled marijuana and saw a set of keys and a burning joint also on the rock, the police report said.

Arbie instructed the 58-year-old man not to sit on the joint, and instead placed it into an evidence bag while informing the seated man that he was under arrest.
"Don't arrest him, it's my marijuana and my keys," the other man said.
The suspect was insistent that the other man not be charged," the report said.
Arbie complied and took John Carter* to jail, where he was issued a notice to appear in court for possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and cooperated fully with the officers involved.
