You've gotta be kidding me.
I hotbox my car a few times weekly. Blunts, dro, chronic, whatever... the smell is gone after a few days.
Try rolling the windows down for a few minutes.

How old is this kid? What exactly did your sister say happened? Why the hell would you let your irresponsible sister and annoying, pot-smoking friends ride around in your car in the first place?

From the evidence presented, let me create a scenario for you of what may have actually happed:

Your car reeks strongly of weed, there's bud all over the place. Unless your sister physically attacked him, he was high as hell when he packed that bowl and spilled it all over without realizing it. Smell the weed, smell the car, how strong is the smell in your car compared to the bud? Unless it has a particularly strong odor like some varieties, if your car really reeks, and there's weed all over, it sounds like they clambaked it. Check your windows, if you can detect resin on them, he definatly wasn't sparking a joint with the window down. If your sis didnt smoke she probably got contact high, thought she was straight and didnt realize how bad the car was, or she'd have tried to clean it up(how inconsiderate is your sister?) and tried to downplay what happened and pin it on a friend she knows you already dislike.

I'd at least hold your sister accountable for not stopping him before he started smoking, they both need an ass-chewing. If he gives you  crap about it he's probably got a punch in the nose coming as well. One or both of them should be made to clean your car for you.

What are pot laws like in FL? Is it a felony there? Posession under an ounce around here is a misdemenor that will get you a ticket and a court date if they dont just take it. Either way, I wouldn't get the police involved. Stinking up your car isnt a felony. It's an asshole thing to do, but I dont think this requires law enforcement involvment. Go after the kid, if you dont get satisfaction and a free car cleaning, tell his parents. If you do get the police involved, I hope you park your car in a garage since you would have both pissed him off as well as told him how concerned you are about your car, making it a prime target.

As for getting the best way to get that smell out of your car, air it out and take out the floormats and such, blast the heat, if you can find some sort of spray that is agreeable to you use it, or something that doesnt smell but will absorb the odor, try sticking a couple of boxes of baking soda in there, it works in the fridge. If that doesnt work, shampoo the carpet, wash the windows, armorall the dash and stuff. Usually it seems to air out pretty quickly, although some types of upolstry hold it pretty bad. Google could probably provide good answers to this question, I'm sure somewhere on the internetz someone has had the problem of a car that smells like weed and found a good solution to it.

You tell the cops, and not only would the kid be in trouble with the law, but your sister would too. With the possibility of you getting is some trouble.

Im partial to the dump in his room thing. Or somewhere he might laydown or walk.

New car smell take awhile to go away, you'd need to seriously hot box that thing often to destroy new car smell quickly.

  Still Tolga, its going to go away, dont get pissed enough to think you smell it long after its really gone.

Well, according to what Tolga has said to me, he didn't have much of a choice letting his sister drive the car. 

Hey, at least she hasn't wrecked it.

  In that case, I'd definatly involve your parents. Did you purchase, and do you insure this car yourself?  Either way, the car is supposedly yours. Her irresponsibility needs to be brought to their attention, there's no way they should force you to endanger your mode of transportation even if you didnt pay for the whole thing. What the hell is she contributing? What do your parents think about her retarded friends?

Ok so you guys seem to think it's a bad thing that this kid gets introuble but what happens when he gets pulled over and is the one getting in trouble now his life is ruined because some kid couldn't handle the erge to smoke pot in tolgaks new car.

So lets make a list: smoked in car that is not his
                             risked tolgaks future for his fun
                             has been making tolgak miserable for a few years
                             risked his sisters life for his pleasure
                             sounds like he doesn't have a life anyways
                             ruined the value of a brand new car

So sounds like a good enough list of reasons to get him locked up or fined or what ever they do in your state. But either way tell your parent then get a vacumm clean out your car of all the leaves the get a blower fan open all the doors and run the fan so it blows the smell out. As for the cars original smell you may be able to get it detailed and possible get some of that smell back but I really do doubt it.


EXCUSE ME SIR YOU ARE UNDER ARREST FOR HAVING A... STINKY CAR!

Throw a loaf of white bread in the car, and go to auto zone and get car odor eliminator. Its usually unscented.


Or just park the car in the sun with the windows down for a day and your good to go. Make sure it cycles from really hot, to cool.

1. Never lend your sister the car
2. Never lend a woman your car, especially if you have nice wheels.
3. Never lend a woman your car.

More of a description in the edit an hour or so from now.
I'm probably going to get a Mazda 3, grey mica or if possible a custom paint color. It will be a manual though. All 3 automatics have the manual mode. You get absolutely no pleasure of driving with no clutch and only tapping the stick up and down.

Did you get a 2.0 or 2.3?

I would just leave the windows open while driving if possible. That will air it out for awhile. Then you can steam clean it.

After my sister febreezed the car, only one or two leaves remained and the car still stunk.

What happened was my sister was driving the car, and out of nowhere, without asking or implying, the kid pulled out a joint and lit it. I don't know how, but there were leaves all over the place around where he sat, probably from a bag that he didn't close properly or tore or something. My sister got angry, but from the way she yell-*ahem* talked about it on the way to the tattoo parlor, it sounds like she's completely fine with it. She did have the courage to drop him off at his friend's house instead of taking him to the destination, but by then it was too late.

The febreeze did little to stop the smell. It still reeked. There was no "new car" scent remaining. Also, although smells might fade, the remnants can still be pretty annoying and strong in the right conditions. Again, since scent can stir up very strong memories, I want it completely gone. What's tolerable for most people will annoy me to no end. Breathing in remnants of smoke also gives me an empty feeling, even if I don't recognize the smell that usually goes along with it.

As for getting caught, the amount of leaves that were in the car was enough for a joint, according to what some people have told me in their advice regarding this issue. I had little time to get to class, and the amount scattered over the floor could not be swept away quickly enough. I covered it up before I went to class to avoid any problems. My fear was that I could have gotten pulled over or gotten in an accident or something and a part of my life could have been ruined by this kid's actions.

As for the ownership of the car. I'm going to pay the insurance on it for as long as I have it, and will pay back my dad as soon as I begin making enough money to do so. My sister gets to use the car because the endless **edited**ing from her isn't worth it to the rest of the family. She's going to get a new car of her own, but because of how poorly she treats the things we own, especially our cars, I'll bribe her into taking this one so I can get me a nice older car, save my parents some money, and maybe get to enjoy an actual manual shift car for once.

I have the 2.0 L engine. The 2.3 isn't much of an improvement over it anyway.


He'res what I plan to do about the kid. I got his phone number by taking my sister's phone when we stopped at a gas station. She has two Mikes on the phone and I could only take one of the numbers, but looking through the yearbook and going online will single out the one I need.

I'm going to go to his house and make a deal with him. I wont take him to the police because it's not worth the trouble or the extra **edited**ing I will get from my sister. I will make him the offer to pay for a steam cleaning of the car, and will make him sign a document admitting to having smoked weed in my car without anyone's permission and maybe get the signing on video to avoid any trouble with a notary. If, during the cleaning, somebody finds a trace of weed and decides to report it, that signed document and video will be my evidence. If I don't get any trouble in the next few weeks, I'll tear up the document and give it to him.

If he refuses to pay for a cleaning, I'll be sure smoking in my car will be the biggest mistake he's ever made (provided I can find evidence against him).

The operation begins as soon as I can get my hands on that second phone number.

Even if I had any desire to smoke anything, I would not have had the chance to use what was left in the car.

Seems a bit excessive.

I would just call the cops and say ____ has weed on him, or say that he sells or something, and give them the address.

What am I supposed to do if someone does find a significant amount of weed or identifies the smell and reports it? Saying it's not mine wont do crap without a witness. I'm taking no risks. A signed document with proof of him signing it is the only way I can have evidence now incase something goes bad. As far as I know, my sister cares more for her friends than the well being of her family. This kid used to be her boyfriend and she would be the only witness.

EDIT: I'm trying to do this now with the least amount of trouble. She holds grudges like crazy and has insane and lasting tantrums, so there's no telling what would happen in the next 20 days if I got her ex-boyfriend arrested. It's a delicate situation. The only thing more I want to say about my sister is that our parents and I cannot wait until she leaves for college in 20 days, and could kill to bring that date closer.

Vacuum the damn leaves up?

And seriously, why would this kid sign the paper? Wouldn't it make more sense for him to just say hell no?
