Unlawful Possession of Marijuana is a Civil Citation. If this is the reason the village needs its own police force, perhaps its time to rethink its existence..

what are you a drug dealer?? These are the things that affect the quality of life in a small town. get real. I hope they bust all of these low lifes.

No I'm not a drug dealer, and if you read the report you would have seen no drug dealers were arrested, only users. If you think a teen, young adult smoking a little cannabis is a threat to the overall village then you've seen one too many episodes of reefer madness.

ITS ILLEGAL!!!!!!! Wake up. How do you think kids get hooked on this junk? They start like this. Keep arresting them. Maybe it will wake someone up.
Brian November 28, 2011 at 05:13 PM
Yea and so is jaywalking. I'm not suggesting the cops should back off drug dealers or those who use in public, but it seems that the lynbrook police are a little overzealous. I'm glad you've led a flawless life.

They should be arrested and charged. Kids should not be exposed to this. Quality of life goes down quickly if left alone. Crime goes up. It must be stopped. Period.

ive never used drugs. I can say that. what about you? dont try and confuse the issues here. You want the liberal free ways that have destroyed our youth. Figure it out. Time to say NO!!!
Brian November 28, 2011 at 09:13 PM
the big kahuna- time to say no? thats what we been telling kids for 30+ years now. got news for you-it hasn't worked. "liberal free" ways haven't destroyed our youth, but teabaggers will when they eradicate the dept. of education
Tom Garrett November 29, 2011 at 12:30 PM
"Just say No" and "Education" heheee....... Neither has worked very well so far! The person arrested in the report is an Adult.
the big kahuna November 29, 2011 at 04:20 PM
typical liberal attitude. Since we cant fix it lets just make it legal! Maybe we need to make the laws tougher instead of weaker.
Tom Garrett November 30, 2011 at 02:52 AM
A very well thought out response..... Question for you, did Prohibition solve the issue it was supposed to or did it make it worse??
