A man faces drug charges after allegedly smoking pot on a JetBlue flight to Newark, N.J.

Airport police say the man claimed he had the marijuana for medicinal purposes.

Crew members from Flight 510 from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., say they became suspicious Monday when the man, identified as 43-year-old Adam Blumenkranz of Los Angeles, dropped a clear plastic bag in the cabin.

As the plane approached Newark the crew reported the man entered the lavatory. When he emerged, they say there was a strong smell of marijuana.

He was charged with possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia and released.

Blumenkranz could not be reached for comment. Two telephone listings for him were disconnected.
