24 May 2013 - Thursday night former All That actress Amanda Bynes was arrested at her New York City apartment after she allegedly threw a bong from her apartment window, NYC police said.
According to various reports, Bynes was arrested after the doorman spotted the singer smoking weed in the building’s lobby and “behaving erratically.”
By the time police arrived to the scene, Miss Bynes had returned to her apartment on the 36th floor, where police observed her tossing a bong out of the window.
TMZ reported that Amanda went “ballistic” when she found out she was taken into custody, and she shouted “Don’t you know who I am?” to the police. In their report the arresting officers noted a “heavy” smell of marijuana and smoke inside the apartment.
Bynes was booked on charges of criminal marijuana possession, reckless endangerment and tampering with evidence (for the bong toss).
25 April 2013 - Last night, the swedish police raided Justin Bieber's tour bus and found marijuana. The 19-year-old's coach was stopped by law enforcement officers outside the Ericsson Globe venue in Stockholm.
Authorities were originally alerted to the bus after detecting a ''strong smell'' of weed coming from it while controlling the crowd that had gathered outside Justin's hotel.
According to the Aftonbladet newspaper, police allegedly found a ''small amount'' of what appeared to be cannabis on board, as well as a stun gun, which requires a permit. No one will be charged because they have no idea who was in possession of the pot since the bus was empty when raided.
6 April 2013 - Niall Breslin better known as Bressie, Irish musician and coach on the first season of The Voice of Ireland is discredited for saying he's 'absolutely pro-legislation' stating that "stress will kill you, cannabis won't."
According to NewsTalk.ie, the Europe Against Drugs (EURAD) group has
described Bressie’s views as "highly irresponsible" and "misguided".
The 32-year-old singer spoke to Hot Press recently and gave his opinion about the pot debate. He said "he’s
"never been uncomfortable in the company of someone who's high on
marijuana"."Saying [marijuana] can lead to other drugs is the
weakest, most pathetic argument. The ‘gateway’ thing has been totally disproved. It makes so much sense to tax and regulate it.”, he added.
16 March 2013 - Justin Bieber interrupted his european tour for a whiff o Dutch culture last week, when he embarked on a little Amsterdam excursion.
The 19 year old singer unexpectedly attended a hip hop party at music venue De Melkweg but, reportedly, walked off after ten minutes because the club refused to seat him and his party on stage, next to the DJ's.
According to onlooking Amsterdammers the teen superstar then visited a coffee shop named Easy Times where he was seen smoking a joint and eating a cannabis laced 'space cake'.
A weekend in the Dutch capital is hardly going to improve his bad boy image, following his difficult week. It appears the star was in search of some relief after his difficult week and when picking up some chips he appeared relieved that no fuss was made.
The last two weeks Bieber fell into disrepute when he started his London show two hours late, cancelled his shows in Portugal and attacked a photographer.
12 March 2013 - During a show in Ghana Chris Brown has angered the locals after defying local laws. The RnB singer was smoking weed on stage and then he allegedly encouraged people to take up arms for a revolution.
The marijuana smoking performance caused a massive revolt in the country and some Ghanaian citizens are calling for the hip-hop star to be returned to the country to face charges.
Ghana has strict laws against smoking cannabis in public and the encouraging of a revolution isn't appreciated either.
“He promoted an illegality,” said Ghanaian youth activist Jonathan Osei-Owusu. If the 24 year old popstar ever dicides to return to Ghana Jonathan Osei-Owusu might make it very difficult for him.
The executive director of Perfector of Sentiments [POS], a youth
advocacy organization is leading the campaign to have Chris Brown stand
trial. The charges would be promoting the public smoking of marijuana to a stadium full of young
people and to supposedly encourage people
to take up arms. Chris Brown will probably not be deported to Ghana but if he returns it will not be a warm welcome.
