^^^What a bummer! See, this is one more reason for Furthur to be playing in the Midwest instead of NYC. In Ann Arbor, it's a $25 ticket for less than an ounce (was $5 for years), but I've never known an officer to bother to write one unless someone was also being belligerent or rude in some other way. You'd get more hassle for the Winston around here than for the joint.

lol, that's what I was thinking. PS - I have been known to puff discretely on the streets of NYC - not too often, only about 1X every day (walking to the train) for years.
I think it's because of the show you got unlucky there. Or cause it was a J. But I do try to be somewhat discrete, with a bullet. Sorry to hear about how NY finest treated you. Too bad they don't have better things to do. I hope you get "off" relatively easy.
Sick part is I still see people walking down 5th avenue in daylight in the middle of huge crowds smoking (even past the empire state building, which has cops stationed there 24 /7), and they don't do a thing about it. Maybe there is a quota for a show?
Now I am super glad I did not take that hit off the J offered by a stranger at Radio city. Felt like it was that line from Truckin....set up like a bowling pin.
