    He`s not a tattletale... the cops knew damn well these people were smoking weed. His point was valid. All these people were breaking the law in plain view of officers who were not enforcing the law.

    So... if enough people break the law together, cops won`t do anything. That`s what we`ve learned from this video.

    You have a huge crowd of mellow people who aren`t going to riot, break windows, or throw bricks at the cops. What more could the police want from a mob? And this wiener wants all of them arrested?

    I smoke a lot of weed and think it should be legal for all but this guy has a point. Either legalize it or enforce the law. Just like liberal parents today, "It`s OK if Johnny does not want to follow the rules today". BS

    Marijuana was first criminalized in the 30s because William Randolph Hearst (the newspaper magnate) lost land in Mexico to Pancho Villa`s army and wanted to vilify mexican rebels. He financed "Assassin of Youth" with Harry Ansberger.
    The real crime is that pot is a schedule 1 drug alongside heroin and cocaine.

    Yes, he`s a total douche and they probably should have done something to him. But they`re just as douchetastic for doing nothing about it. They don`t have the resources? Really? What does it take to arrest a few stoners. They aren`t going to put up a fight, just do it and be done.

    Hell, I`ll just get a couple hundred friends together to get drunk and run around naked in a local park. If there are too many of us, we`ll have no worries about getting arrested.

    Cops are pathetic.

    a few stoners? it`s over 500 harmless people. and even though they are breaking the law they`re posing no danger to anyone. if they started arresting people then it would have turned from a harmless crime into a harmful riot. They have the resources to arrest a bunch of people, they don`t have the resources to contain a 500 people mob.

    What`s pathetic is that I have to explain this to you. It`s an incredibly simple concept and yet your little brain can`t even grasp it.

    no freddy, the stoners aren`t running around naked like a bunch of little kids like you and your friends apparently do.
    it was a peaceful gathering where marijuana was being smoked. a flower that should not be illegal. that is all. it makes you hungry, that`s about it.

    you honestly think these people should goto jail and have a criminal record attached to them the rest of your life for consuming a harmless flower in a peaceful setting? you are the pathetic one

    If you complain about people smoking marijuana you should also complain about people smoking regular cigarettes. So stupid.

    ahhh, nothing like a non sequitur in the morning. pretty sure none of those people were "running around naked" or were being disorderly in any way. had they been, they probably would have used more resources. you think that a handful of officers can effectively handle a crowd of 500+ people? yeeeeahhhh... let me know when you make it back to reality.

    It is the job of the police to enforce the law, but not every aw evey time because their primary job is maintain public order and protect citizens.

    If a police force actually did enforce every law every time it would need to be as baig as, say, N. Korea`s.

    About 500 people? Say 40+ trips in police vans. How many man-hours to process? Five thousand? How many holdng cells does a precinct have? You are going to fill a lot of precincts.

    How much evidence will there be? Most people probably just took a few spliffs which would be easily ditched so there would probably need to be blood tests. And lawyers.

    And the chances of any case being taken to court? Slim to zero.

    Police, sensible ones, target their resources on stuff that matters. Allocating resources is a large part of what senior officers do, so if they have decided to make smoking weed a very low priority and rape/murder a very high one they don`t need some whiny jerk telling them what to d

    I think that all smoking should be illegal, I think that any device by which one may spread a drug ambiently is simple assault.
    Ingest it, snort it, shoot it for all I care, just make sure that you`re the only person that`s affected.
    Also, what has lent people with the gross misconception that marijuana smokers are peaceful people? I`ve known plenty of chronic smokers that were not only terribly aggressive but extraordinarily irrational. (Probably because they were often suffering from two hour withdrawal)

    It`s not about whether or not weed should be legal (IMO it should for adults just like booze and baccy) or whether or not it is harmless (IMO it is among adults or at least less harmful than some legal substances.)

    It`s about priorities. A few years ago comedian Mark Thomas took a couple of dozen pot users (quite middle class ones) into a police station where they each admitted using and asked to be arrested. The senior officer in the station declined and quite rightly so, he had better things to do with his resources.

    Gotta love these caped crusaders that want to force their narrow worldview onto everyone else.

    Wow Geogypsy...a cloud of the kind smoke is assault.

    Yeah, people are MUCH better off snorting cocaine, shooting heroin or getting wasted on alcohol. Heck, let`s toss in PCP while we`re at it. As long as you can`t smell it.

    Lookie here hoss. By a HUGE margin more people are directly affected by hard drugs and alcohol use than by folks who just want a few tokes of the kind bud. If you`ve met Ahole weed smokes I`ll lay 10:1 they were Aholes before they ever got a hold of weed or they`re into other drugs that makes them such.

    Tsk tsk, @Reignblazer, I`m not trying to force my (understandably) highly unpopular position upon anyone else. I`m just stating my opinion.

    It`s not like I`m going to burst through your door, shatter your bongs, flush your ciggies down the toilet, place you on trial for smoking in closed quarters around your puppy and force you to convert to Capnophobity.

    It`s not like I walk around with a giant, wooden non smoking sign screaming, "Heathen! Heeaaaathen! Repent for your crimes or diiiiie!"
    Before proceeding to nail smokers to `the circle of judgement` upon which their bloody bodies may attract a number of urban scavengers to feast upon their living flesh..the poor raccoons might get a tummy ache! ;-)

    DromEd "Yeah, people are MUCH better off snorting cocaine, shooting heroin or getting wasted on alcohol. Heck, let`s toss in PCP while we`re at it. As long as you can`t smell it."

    That`s not at all what I was insinuating. I was referring to the insufflation of snuff and the ingestion of marijuana. The reference to injection was intended to be tongue in cheek but my point was that almost any smokeless method of taking these drugs would be more considerate to those around you.

    How the hell are they affecting anyone else? You should have paid more attention in school, maybe then you would have learnt about convection. It`s simply impossible for you to inhale someone else`s smoke if you`re over 10m away.

    Also, it`s interesting how you`re so opposed to inhaling a bit of weed but you`re ok with inhaling toxic fumes from car exhausts. That makes perfect sense.

    I`ve never had a buzz just by being around people smoking pot indoors let alone outdoors. Either i need better friends or they need better pot.
