In upper left hand corner of the video. Ready is heckling Frank’s opponent Sean Bielat, 2010. He can be seen taking pictures of him, etc.

Joe Kennedy II “Do You Know Who I Am” and grandson of RFK
In a telephone interview, Frank acknowledged he was present for the bust but denied knowledge that James Ready was growing cannabis. He reportedly told police during the August, 2007 incident that he only smokes cigars and would not be able to identify marijuana if he came across it.
Charges against Ready were dropped after he admitted to possession and paid a fine, MyFox added.
Congressman Frank, while professing to be unable to identify cannabis if he came across it, is no stranger to progressive positions on its prohibition. In April 2008, he proposed federal legislation that would have removed penalties for adult possession of the plant. Appearing on Real Time with Bill Maher, he jokingly referred to it as the “Make Room for Serious Criminals Bill.”
