Following the smell of marijuana to a car in a White Plains parking garage, police discovered more than 28 grams of pot and arrested a Bronx man this week, police say.

Dean Scott, 25, of 4038 Wilder Ave., was charged with criminal possession of marijuana in the fifth-degree, a misdemeanor.

Police noticed the smell of marijuana in the 11 Mitchell Pl. garage just before 5 a.m. on Dec. 8. Officers in the area noticed a vehicle parked in the lot occupied by two men and spotted a rolled marijuana cigarette in the vehicle as they approached.

While searching the vehicle police say they found a backpack holding two Ziploc bags that contained marijuana. The marijuana weighed a total of about 28.4 grams, according to an arrest report.

Scott admitted the marijuana was his, police say, and he was transported to police headquarters. Scott was later released on $50 bail.

I just read another article detailing the arrest of 3 men with about 27 pounds of marijuana...their bonds were set at 1 million dollars each. I recall Jerry Sandusky being released on a $250,000 bond. What the hell is wrong with this picture? At least the judge handling Mr. Scott's bond, had some sense of justice...$50. Please, let me know when this is all over. It is time to end the war on drugs. I wish Mr. Scott a speedy and complete exoneration.

The closest I have ever seen marijuana come to harming anyone was during an air drop. We brought in 1100 pounds from Jamaica and dropped it in a peanut field in middle Georgia. The bales were dropped from a small plane at 125 feet altitude. One of the bales, about 80 pounds, missed my compadre by only a few feet... but it surely messed up his truck. You can read about it in: Shoulda Robbed a Bank That is my contribution to helping point out just how ludicrous our pot laws truly are.

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.
