Update: As expected, cops in Ross Township outside of Pittsburgh have charged Steelers running backs Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount with marijuana possession for a three-quarter ounce bag of herb found in their car earlier this week after the pair were caught smoking up in traffic. Bell has also been charged with driving under the influence of marijuana. In Pennsylvania, it’s illegal to have any THC metabolites in your system when driving a car.
A third person in the car, 21-year-old Mercedes Dollson, was also charged with pot possession. Cops noted that all three were cooperative and polite, which you kind of have to be when a motorcycle cop pulls up next to you when you’ve got a lit joint going around the car.

Willson Nixon, 21, son of Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, got busted for pot early Saturday morning.

​​The son of Missouri Governor Jay Nixon was issued a citation for possession of marijuana early on Saturday.

Police officers claimed Willson Nixon, 21, tried to hide the weed after they were sent to a loud party at Brookside Apartments in Columbia, Missouri. Upon entering the complex, police claimed they detected an “overwhelming smell of marijuana in the hallway.” They also found multiple apartments with open doors.
“This is a private matter that will be handled through the municipal process,” the governor said, reports Mark Slavit at KCRG. “My son is a fine young man, and we will be working through this issue as a family.”
What would be even cooler, Governor, is if you “worked through this issue” as a STATE, and got Missouri’s nonsensical pot laws off the books.
“We’ve been getting calls about loud parties at this complex every weekend,” claimed Jill Wieneke, spokeswoman for the Columbia Police Department.

​Antoine “Bed Intruder” Dodson, whose TV news rant against a would-be rapist became a viral music video and his expressway to stardom, appeared in an Alabama city court on Monday, facing marijuana possession charges along with four other misdemeanors.

Shortly after his court appearance, Dodson posted a series of defiant tweets poking fun at the proceedings, reports CNN.
“Court was bullshit,” said one tweet.
“Damn I didn’t kill anyone did I??? It’s Just weed!!! You know that stuff that grows like grass?? Yeah that! !!” said another tweet to his 37,000-plus followers.
“Damn!! I never been in jail except that time in grade school,” he tweeted. “You remember!!!”

​Willie Nelson’s arrest on November 26 for marijuana possession led to speculation that the country music legend might have to do prison time, because the six-ounce amount initially reported constituted a felony in Texas. But officials later “determined the amount” of pot to be only four ounces, earning the 77-year-old misdemeanor charge instead.

After cops “analyzed the case,” they “realized” the amount of pot was only about four ounces, which, whadda ya know, means a lesser charge.

Now, is it really possible that local law enforcement there in Hudspeth County, Texas is so deeply incompetent as to over-weigh the evidence by 50 percent? Or did they — reacting to the monsoon of negative media coverage they got for booking and charging the elderly Nelson — “lose” a couple of ounces so they could knock the charges down to a misdemeanor, with a $4,000 fine and a maximum year in the county jail?

Phil Rudd, 56, drummer for AC/DC, was convicted and fined for possessing 27 grams of cannabis.

​AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was convicted of marijuana charges in his hometown of Tauranga, New Zealand, earlier this week after being caught with just under an ounce of cannabis.

Rudd, 56, was fined only $250 plus $132.89 court costs, but the “drug conviction” could make it problematic to travel on AC/DC’s world tours, reports RTT News.
Police said had discovered the marijuana in the drummer’s boat, the Barchetta, at the North Island’s Tauranga Bridge Marina on October 7, according to the website SunLive.
Law enforcement officials claimed they found 25 grams of cannabis on the dock and another two grams on the boat.
Rudd’s attorney Craig Tuck requested a minimum sentence to limit the effect on the heavy metal drummer’s career, according to the U.K. Daily Mail.
