Still making stupid pot arrests. The President says that Alcohol is worse than pot. 88,000 die from alcohol every year in the USA. ZERO PEOPLE DIE FROM POT!!!!! Wake up people: Pot arrests are a sign of lazy kops. Alcohol, heroin, meth, cocaine crack are all much more harmful. Look it up on the internet, pot is the least harmful intoxicant. People under the influence of pot are mellow and docile--drunks are violent and beat wives and kids, mow down innocents with cars.

In a lear jet, I guess you must be high. The arrests are for other things and when caught with pot, it is still illegal.

Read my post. I never said pot was legal. I sad that pot arrests are stupid and quoted a few statistics.

Yea, Lear is smoking pot in Mom's basement and blaming The Man for all he could have done with his life. Typical delusional pothead. Maybe you could have been of some value to society if you hadn't spent life stoned. Oh yea, you're on your Lear Jet.

Many people on Long Island love freedom limiting laws "for everyone's safety." Laws that are on the books should always be fully enforced, giving citizens an opportunity to comply and to change laws that are wrong. Laws that aren't fully enforced are the dangerous ones, giving authorities a toolbox full of statutes to criminalize anyone at any time who they disagree with. I don't smoke pot, but people who do harm nobody but themselves. A society that truly values freedom would have no laws against marijuana.

20 million people who are of normal working age and not in college are not working. Legalizing pot will not help anyone secure or maintain a job. I do not want the Biebster (drunk, stoned, lazy and entitled) to be reflective of my or the next generation.

that was probably one of the dumbest comments I have ever read here, and there have been some pretty dumb ones! To Phil, who wrote "I don't smoke pot, but people who do harm nobody but themselves". You're an idiot! Say that to the victims on the receiving end of countless Driving While Impaired accidents that have occurred in Long Beach. Stupid fool, you're probably high yourself.

does anyone realize that LT TACKELBERRY CHERNASKI HAS NOT SOLVED ONE SHOOTING ARREST IN LONG BEACH. TIME FOR THE COMMISSIONER TO MOVE THIS INCOMPETETENT OUT OF HIS POSITION. PEOPLE IN LB ARE IN DANGER AND THIS CLOWN IS FAILING MISERABLY.
