Police in Howard County Maryland cracked down on pot smoking over the weekend at a concert -- put on by the band Phish -- at Meriweather Post Pavilion. Howard County police say they made 31 arrests at a Phish concert over the weekend, most of them for drug possession.

Among those charged were four men police say were selling drugs out of a recreational vehicle. Police seized the RV along with marijuana and $12,000 in cash.

Three other people were arrested on drug dealing charges, while 20 were charged with possession. Two were charged with second-degree assault on a police officer and two with trespassing.

Police spokeswoman Sherry Llewellyn says more than 20,000 people attended the show and there was a strong police presence, including some officers who worked undercover.
