Derbyshire Police Contact Centre released the transcript of the ‘unbelievable’ exchange on Twitter.

It reads: “I’ve passed my driving test today and I’m not gonna lie, I smoke cannabis, like, in my spare time and I’m worried about how long I have to leave it until I can actually get in the car.

“Like, if I smoke weed at night, can I drive to work in the morning, or if I smoked a spliff an hour ago, can I get in the car in an hour?

“Oh, and don’t call us from your home phone to tell us stuff like this, because now we know who you are.”
