Man Arrested For Smoking Weed On A JetBlue Flight

· January 25, 2012

This man brings a whole new meaning to the mile “high” club. Adam Blumenkranz, a 42-year-old LA man, was arrested Monday for allegedly smoking pot mid-flight in a JetBlue airplane bathroom, KTLA reports.

Flight attendants became suspicious when Blumenkranz dropped a clear plastic bag in the cabin, reports the Associated Press. When he emerged from the lavatory, a “strong smell of marijuana” emerged with him.

The plane was flying from Fort Lauderdale, Fla. to Newark, N.J. Police met Blumenkranz at the terminal gate in New Jersey and took him into custody, under charges of possession of a controlled dangerous substance and drug paraphernalia. According to KTLA, Blumenkranz told police he believed he had done nothing illegal because he has a medical marijuana card.

Legal in California, however, doesn’t necessarily mean legal 30,000 feet in the air. As Gather News reports, although sixteen states have legalized cannabis, up in the air, Uncle Sam’s in charge: Air travel comes under federal jurisdiction.

He is a serious weed head if he couldn’t go 2 hours with out smoking.

          Naw it ain’t easy to get drugs on the plane with those body scanners and the hoe ass TSA. He must of had a prescription but its still a crime to tamper, destroy or smoke anywhere on a plane
