NYC Police Bust 4-20 Pot Party After Call About Social Distancing


The NYPD busted around 40 people at a 4/20 "pot party" in Manhattan after receiving a tip from someone who was concerned about people breaking social distancing guidelines.

Cops were flagged down by a concerned person in the neighborhood who observed a group of people entering a West 23rd Street commercial building around, not a joke, 4:20 p.m. on Monday. They then found 38 people smoking pot in a vacant commercial location on the third floor, along with tons of marijuana, edibles, and other THC paraphernalia.

Altogether, all 38 people received summonses for unlawful trespassing; five people received summonses for marijuana possession; two people had previous warrants and one person was taken to police in Brooklyn in relation to a previous investigation for burglary.
