Burlington youth found to have small amount of marijuana and a concealed weapon.

By Pepper Parr

BURLINGTON, ON  October 12, 2012   It was found to be just an air pistol – a BB gun; but what was a 14 year old also found to be in possession of a small amount of marijuana in his pocket, doing with what police refer to as a weapon?

To the person looking down the barrel of this weapon it isn’t a harmless toy.

The youth was one of three arrested for drug possession at Pinemeadow Park in the city.

The identities of the youth are protected under the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

The “joint” will be described by many as a “recreational” thing; something the kids use.  And that may well be the case, but there is nothing recreational about the supply line that got the drugs into their pockets.  It is a vicious bunch of full time criminals who rely on the naïveté of young  people to rake in lots of money.

Police arrested the three in the afternoon yesterday.
