Here's are just a few high-profile names arrested for drug possesson:
Kareem Abdul Jabbar - Has been caught twice with marijuana.
Ray Charles - Was arrested for heroin possession in 1958, 1961 and 1965 and marijuana possession in 1964.
Whitney Houston - Her and then husband Bobby Brown were caught with marijuana in 2006.
Haley Joel Osment - Well known for seeing dead people in The Sixth Sense, Osment was arrested for marijuana possession in 2006.
Bob Marley - Was surprisingly only arrested once for marijuana possession in 1977.
Kimora Lee Simmons - Was arrested for marijuana possession in 2004.
Aside from drug dealers, there are few people in the world who can say they've possessed 500 pounds of marijuana at one time. Honestly, there's just no reason for it. Other than selling it, what could you do with all of that pot?
might have a few ideas. According to MSNBC
, Arkansas police pulled over the rapper's tour bus last week for a traffic violation and seized nearly 500 lbs of pot, as well as almost $6,500 in cash. Fabolous was not on the bus at the time, but two men, Edward Thimas, 52, and Robert Morris, 44, were arrested.
Proving that rappers really need to reconsider the company they keep, the two men quickly turned on Fabolous. They told authorities that the drugs were his and that they had seen him load the marijuana into a locked compartment with the cash.
According to the bus driver they were returning from the NBA All-Star weekend, which took place in Phoenix, Ariz. Valentine's Day weekend. The driver also said the bus was on it's way to Boston, to pick up "a rapper whose name he couldn't recall." Likely story.
Fabolous has yet to be questioned about the incident, but it's only a matter of time. The whole situation is a little suspicious, especially when you consider there's no reason a high profile rapper needs to take a tour bus to the NBA All-Star game. Why not just fly?
Oh yeah, then he wouldn't be able to transport his 500 pounds of weed. It all makes sense now.
