Denver (AP) -- A Colorado man who got a visit from police after a
pizza delivery driver smelled marijuana at his home is getting free
pizza from a rival restaurant. Frederick Smith says police searched his home in Aurora after a Papa John's International Inc. driver smelled marijuana there last week. The driver reported a child was in the home at the time. Smith told Denver TV station KUSA-TV that he's a registered medical marijuana user. Papa John's has said it stands by its employee. One of its Denver-based rivals, Sexy Pizza, said Thursday that it would give smith one free pizza monthly until Colorado voters decide a proposed 2012 ballot initiative that would legalize marijuana for recreational use. Sexy Pizza says it'll extend the offer for life if voters pass the initiative.
