Cops: Man Charged With Marijuana Possession, Another With Fleeing Scene

Arrests took place in Flanders.

Southampton Town police arrested two Flanders men on Sunday night after one was allegedly found with marijuana -- and another tried to flee the scene.

Police said on Sunday at about 12:07 a.m., a suspicious car was observed with the interior dome light on on Meadowbrook Lane in Flanders.

Upon investigation, police said it was determined that the driver, Guillermo Ayala, 20, of Flanders, was in possession of marijuana. He was arrested at the scene and charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation, and released on an appearance ticket.

During the investigation, police said, the passenger in the car, Elijah Steward, 20, of Flanders, exited the vehicle and refused repeated orders to get back in the vehicle; he then fled into a nearby residence.

A short time later, police said, Steward came out of the residence and was arrested for obstructing governmental administration in the second degree, a misdemeanor. He was transported to police headquarters for processing and released on an appearance ticket.

Prohibitionists literally don't give a damn about the welfare of individual citizens. That's you, me, and everyone you care about. They don't even care when their failed policy puts their own families in danger by destroying the economy and bank-rolling criminals and terrorists. The prohibitionist onslaught appears to be simply a war directed at all of us. America, it is time to wake up! Prohibition is a cultural and economic assault on your money, on your careers, on your ability to put food on the table, have shelter, cloth yourself, and even survive or self-medicate. The fiscal cliff isn't the crisis—Prohibitionist control over America's politics and government is! During alcohol prohibition, all profits went to enrich criminals and corrupt politicians. Young men died every day on inner-city streets while battling over turf. A fortune was wasted on enforcement that could have gone on education, etc. On top of the budget-busting prosecution and incarceration costs, billions in taxes were lost. Finally, the economy collapsed. Sound familiar? Prohibitionists, and their criminal friends who live in a crack-house called Congress, are having a ball and it's all on our tab.
