Police say L.A. man smoked pot on Jet Blue flight
That’s what Adam Blumenkranz discovered when he reportedly lighted a marijuana pipe on a Jet Blue flight from LAX to Newark, New Jersey.
Blumenkranz, 43, of Los Angeles, reportedly ducked into a lavatory before lighting the pipe, authorities said.
Police met Blumenkranz at a terminal gate in New Jersey after the flight landed, and he was taken into custody.
He is charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance and drug paraphernalia, authorities said.
Blumenkranz told police that he did not believe he had done anything wrong because he has a California medical marijuana card. Smoking – tobacco or otherwise – has been banned on any U.S.-based flight since 1990.
