If I was in charge
cops would be able to smoke potonce in awhile.
Just goes out over the radioevery now and then,
"All available units,we have a 420 in progress.
"On the roof of the precinct.
"Afterwards, we're gonna turnthe squad car lights on
"Okay, love you."
Some of you like that idea.
- Smell that mari-ju-ana?
- Oh, you smell marijuana?- Mmm.
- What if, say, for instance,we were driving along
and you saw a comedian
smoking potbehind a Dunkin Donuts?
- Here in Massachusetts,marijuana's decriminalized,

It's a $100 citation.
- Essentially, yeah.
- We take the weed, we'll destroy it,
we'll dispose of it. - Right.
- But you're not doing jail time.
- Doesn't it take a lotof pressure off the cops?
- Yeah.Well, here's the thing.
If a kid thinks he's gonnago to jail for having a joint
and he's all of a suddengoing to start running from you,
and he's got his hands in his pocket
'cause he's tryingto discard it,
but obviously somebodywith their hand in their pocket
we can't see what they have,
we're gonna assumeit's a weapon,
so obviously, it's goingto heighten the sensitivity
of the situation.
- Doing a lot of thingsright here.
which I think is really great.
I think cops have better thingsto do than lock up people
for the one drugthat makes you mellow.
No one in history's ever donea bong hit and robbed a bank.
Hands up, this is a bank rob--is that a lollipop?
This just in,our two suspects
were last seen in a getaway cargoing 12 miles an hour.
They were finally apprehendedat a Burger King drive-thru.
Laugh it up, buddy,it's okay.
It's okay to laugh.
You don't have the rightto remain silent.
