A drug-law reform activist spent a night in jail after hurling abuse 
at cops in an attempt to stop them from collaring pot-smokers outside 
his Greenwich Village home, police said.

As undercover cops nabbed the two dopers Thursday night, Randy 
Credico allegedly burst from his Gay Street home and screamed, "You 
guys are really solving murders out here? Why don't you guys get a 
life! F- - - you all! You can't tell me what to do!"

Credico admitted to The Post he was trying to prevent the arrest of the teens.

"I'm constantly warning kids not to smoke pot on that street," 
Credico said. "These cops are making Mickey Mouse pot arrests - what 
a waste of time and money."

Credico is the director of the William Moses Kunstler Fund for Racial 
Justice, which documents arrests for marijuana violations.

He was charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
