New Canaan Man, 22, Cited for Pot Possession

An infraction summons issued against the Beacon Hill Road resident for possession of less than .5 ounces of marijuana.

 

A 22-year-old New Canaan man was cited on a minor drug charge after police found a small bag of marijuana on him during a motor vehicle stop last week, officials said.

William McKenzie, of Beacon Hill Road, was issued an infraction summons for possession of less than .5 ounces of marijuana at 8:37 p.m.  on Feb. 15.

According to Sgt. Carol Ogrinc of the New Canaan Police Department, McKenzie was stopped on Beacon Hill Road off of Silvermine Road/Route 106, just south of New Norwalk Road, because his car had a frame around the rear license plate.

When police stopped the car, McKenzie appeared to be nervous, slurring his speech, and the officer asked whether there were any illegal substances within the vehicle, police said.

McKenzie said no but the officer saw a flakes and marijuana seeds on the driver’s side and then found a small bag of marijuana inside his jacket pocket, police said.

I agree Corps that smoking serves no purpose. I was an idiot when I smoked cigarettes and hung out in bars. I only did it because I knew I should not and wanted to rebell. Now, I just post and complain here and hang flyers in the Post Office and such. I also go to expensive restaurants I can't really affford and I also play the horses and the stock market. I get more satisfaction doing this than when I smoked and felt sick all the time.

"Playing the horses" by which I assume you mean gambling on horse races, has ruined more lives than pot could ever hope to. To be entirely honest with you Glen, you and your mood might even benefit greatly from a little grass every now and again.

Playing the horses is nothing compared to drugs...and it is legal. Besides, I do not play them like I use to years ago. the pools are too small. So, now I just blog and rebel any way I can till my demands are met. People just expect way too much of me. My and especially daughter are out of control. I hope I can keep it together. I think it would be in everyones best interest to make exception and give me what I need and want

Glen. I like you. I think the way some of your peers and neighbors treat you on here is ugly, base, and deplorable. But you’ve got to stop doing this. Everyone in the world has problems, Glen. It’s part of the human condition, it’s entirely inescapable. I see people from high school still, I can’t even remember their names, but I remember that I still don’t like them for the way they behaved in high school, because they were always beating up on the little guy in sad, misguided attempts to reconcile their public personality with whatever tension or unhappiness was roiling beneath the surface. You’re not alone in the world. Everyone is screwed up somehow, everybody encounters hardships, some of which are so heart-wrenching and horrible even you can’t conceive of them. But if something is wrong with your life, YOU need to be the one to fix it. This is the real world. Nobody, and I promise you this, nobody is going to swoop in with a miracle cure-all. You need to stop complaining, stop waiting for a handout that’s never going to come, deal with your problems like an adult, and rise above it. Otherwise, you’re just wasting time.

Maybe you are right Mr or Miss James. It is just that the ones who picked on me and put me down are now all doing fine and I got left at the starting gate. It is so unfair. They have great incomes, great love life (sorry) fancy clothes...yet I the victim and told to buck up and how great life is. Kind of like the parent who tells the child not to smoke while they are smoking. But, to your point. Maybe it is useless. Maybe I need another avenue. Being on here and sounding off have got me nowhere. I need to come up w/a plan like the Enron or Madoff....not on that large a scale of course. but, something. I will TRY to break this habit. But, it is hard. I am so use to complaining I do not know how to do anything else. However, I still want to complain about the weather because the weather we have around here is just awfull. Glen
