A Los Angeles man was arrested for allegedly smoking pot on a Jet Blue flight headed to Newark, N.J.

Police met Blumenkranz at the terminal gate in New Jersey and took him into custody.

He is charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance and drug paraphernalia. Police said  Blumenkranz told them he did not believe he had done anything wrong because he has a medical marijuana card.
