Police Arrest Two on Marijuana Charges

Endeja Hassan Robinson, 29, and an unidentified man were apprehended with nearly one pound of marijuana in their possession.

Two Bowie men were arrested on charges of possessing nearly a pound of marijuana in the parking lot of T.G.I. Friday’s on Sept. 20, according to a Bowie police report.

Police said they were searching the parking lot after receiving a report of vehicle vandalism. Officers said they smelled what they perceived to be marijuana coming from a parked Ford Bronco.  

According to the police report, Bowie resident Endeja Hassan Robinson, 29, and an unidentified man exited the truck when police approached, and did not respond when asked by police to stop. One suspect fled into the T.G.I. Friday’s restaurant, and the other fled on foot towards Collington Road. After a chase, police were able to apprehend both suspects.

Police searched the vehicle and found 443 grams of marijuana. The suspects are being charged with possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and failure to obey a lawful order, according to Police Chief John Nesky.

What a waste of time, money, resources. Meanwhile TGI Friday's itself is providing a far more dangerous drug to the public. www.drugpolicy.org - get informed.

Ending prohibition would greatly reduce, even almost eliminate, the market in illegal narcotics, cause a reduction in the number of users and addicts, greatly curtail drug related illness and deaths, reduce societal harm from problematic abusers, and bring about an enormous reduction in the presence and influence of organized crime. The people who use drugs are our own children, our brothers, our sisters, our parents, and our neighbors. By allowing all adults safe and controlled legal access to psychoactive substances, we will not only greatly reduce the dangers for both them and ourselves but also greatly minimize the possibility of 'peer-initiation' and sales to minors. If you sincerely believe that prohibition is a dangerous and counter-productive policy then you can stop helping to enforce it. You are entitled—required even—to act according to your conscience. * It only takes one juror to prevent a guilty verdict. * You are not lawfully required to disclose your voting intention before taking your seat on a jury. * You are also not required to give a reason to the other jurors on your position when voting. Simply state that you find the accused not guilty! * Jurors must understand that it is their opinion, their vote. If the Judge and the other jurors disapprove, too bad. There is no punishment for having a dissenting opinion. We must create what we can no longer afford to wait for: PLEASE VOTE TO ACQUIT!

I'm glad you detailed this - the concept of jury nullification is a very important one, and I'd venture to say that most people aren't aware it is an option. Everything you've said regarding drug prohibition hits the nail on the head. Bowie PD can prioritize what laws are enforced - and arresting someone for drug possession is ineffective, counterproductive, and only serves to hurt our community. I wonder what was discovered regarding the original complaint of vehicle vandalism? Guess real crime doesn't matter once the Bowie cops get their Brownie points for drug arrests.
