Agreed.

You think it generates enough revenue to offset the cost of a big Blue Crush operation? Or those huge cameras they set up? Or all the legal aid for those dirty, lazy hippies?
I don't know..........

I actually don't care, but I suspect the fines are pretty high, no pun intended. I just don't want people doing illegal things in a public park. I am not sure why a bunch of people think the rules don't apply just because of the date.

Those cameras are usually there. Not sure if they brought extra, but there is usually at least one.

This behavior should not be tolerated, I am sure it costs the city to clean up and to control the drugs and people after the fact as well. Even since the Spring break craziness I have seen a greater police force there.

Certainly generates more revenue than having a bunch of Blue Crush cops hanging out at Howards Donuts waiting for calls to come in.

Hippies don't need legal aid, they need baths!

I did hear they brought in that big camera they use on Beale St. for NYE. (I actually think that's a pretty good idea. There are tens of thousands of people down there for that.)
I just don't have a big problem with drinking beer and smoking weed in the park. Hell, they sold beer at the Shell for years and years.

Now, if there was a way for the Blue Crush guys to arrest for patchouli I'd be totally into that.

being completely unaware of the date, the gf and i strolled through the park on Tuesday with the dogs. as soon as i realized what was going on, i groaned and contemplated taking a detour, but we soldiered on through the den of insipidity. as it was getting close to dusk, there weren't many folks there (left?), but there were a bunch of cardboard waste bins set up and the park looked remarkably clean. i caught a couple of wafts of the herb, but nothing really that crazy going on. the cops were stationed up by the monument and over by the playground and seemed fairly bored and not particularly itching to crack any heads. so was there some kind of understanding? like "we'll keep our distance if you're not openly drinking or using hueg fucking bongs or selling"? i have no idea...

That would have been a good day and place to drive arround with the Santa Claus outfit.
I need to make plans for the future!

The best thing I heard all day on 4/20 was the GED Program Director at my agency tell me, "Some of the kids said they are gonna change their 4/20 festivities to the 22nd..."
