Trenton Man Arrested for Possession of Marijuana

The following information was supplied by the Trenton Police Department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

Trenton police arrested a 37-year-old man after he admitted to possessing marijuana during a traffic stop at about 9:40 a.m. Dec. 22 in the 3200 block of Edison Street.

An officer pulled the man over when he noticed the 1995 Ford pick up truck the man was driving had a cracked windshield.

The officer asked the man if there was anything in the vehicle he should know about and the man replied, "Yes," according to a Trenton police report. The man then retrieved a small package of marijuana out of the car and handed it to the officer.

The man told the officer he did not have a medical marijuana card and the officer placed him under arrest.

The officer also found the man had two outstanding warrants for his arrest.

Officers advised the man of the warrants, issued him a violation for possession of marijuana and released him on $300 bond.

Does this guy seem like a criminal to to you? He was even 100% honest with the police officer even if it meant his arrest. Police should stop focusing on marijuana possession charges so they can focus on real criminals. That is what the justice system is for. Not for a medicinal plant that is proven to be basically harmless. Take Portugal as an example and focus efforts on catching real criminals. If someone is addicted to weed, Facebook, alcohol or pills; Treat it as a medical issue not a criminal one.

We all know that someday, soon, this prohibition will end...and none too soon. I spent 5 years in Federal Prison for a marijuana offense. The memorable day that I met with the parole panel, I asked, "When pot becomes legal, what will my 5 years spent in prison have meant?" Their response, "That is a very philosophical question. We don't deal with philosophy in this office." Case closed...go back to your cell. When the 5 years were gone, I walked out and never looked back. But, I know to this day, there are thousands of Americans still dealing with the same miserable crap. I wrote about the escapades that led to my imprisonment...my book: Shoulda Robbed a Bank I would be honored by your review.

All card-carrying members of the DEA need to read: Shoulda Robbed a Bank Here is one of its reviews: 5.0 out of 5 stars... If David Sedaris had written 'Catcher in the Rye'..this would be it, June 30, 2012 Amazon Verified Purchase This review is from: Shoulda Robbed a Bank (Kindle Edition) I have never smoked pot in my life...nor do I ever care to. I read about this book in numerous Huffington Post comments. Thought I would read it because I know nothing about marijuana or the people involved with it. I am ecstatic that I did. Funny, Funny, Funny!!! The chapters are like short stories. Stories about unloading boats with helicopters, close encounters with law enforcement, traveling through the jungles of South America. The chapter about the author's first time smoking marijuana made me feel like I was with him...coughing. All of the characters were just a group of loveable, nice guys and girls. Not what I had been raised to believe...hysterical maniacs high on pot bent on death and mayhem. They were nothing like that. If you have ever read any of David Sedaris' books, and like them...you will love Shoulda Robbed a Bank. And the crazy things happening reminded me of Holden Caufield in 'Catcher in the Rye' and the way he staggered through life. The way the words are put together are like nothing I have ever heard. I am sure I will use many of the sayings found in this book just to dazzle my friends. A terrific read. I love this book.
