Art Garfunkel was arrested for Marijuana possesion. This is like announcing that we’ve found weapons of mass destruction in an American missile silo. Good job, New York State Troopers. One of the guys who sang “Feelin’ Groovy” smokes weed? How did you ever crack that case? First George Clinton, now this. There aren’t any heroes anymore.
The judge should just throw this out of court. If we’re going to charge people for a victimless crime, they at least need to be surprising. If the only people you can charge with possession are underprivileged minorities and aging hippies and funk musicians, you lose. Go out and try again, pig, and come back when you’ve found John Ashcroft toking.
