(WMC-TV) - A Memphis police officer says a group of people inside an apartment near the University of Memphis were smoking so much marijuana there was a "cloud" pouring from the unit.

The officer, responding to a call of drug sales in the area, said he could smell pot outside the apartment. When a group of guys left the unit, the officer could see pipes, a scale and baggies inside.

Savannah Lawrence, who lives in the apartment, let the officer search her home. According to court records, police found nearly 26 grams of marijuana inside.

Lawrence and her boyfriend Chester Blount, both 19, are facing drug charges. Both are currently behind bars.
