He's a pot head? No, I'm shocked, shocked I tell you! He must have been framed by the police just like O.J. Next we will learn 12 women are lining up to claim he forced sex on them over and over again every time they came back to meet him. Stop, I can't take it! Oh, the humanity!

I don't drink or smoke ain't into dope
Won't try no coke, ask me how I do it, I cope
My only addiction has to do with the female species
I eat 'em raw like sushi

Come on.. legalize the stuff and make LOTS of tax money off of it. Who cares if someone smokes pot these days. I love the show but I think Billy's wife needs to get rid of the bleach blond bar fly look.

How stupid it is that it's a FELONY for possessing a naturally-growing plant. I guess we should charge the earth with manufacturing and trafficking this illegal narcotic while we're at it, right?

Felony marijuana possession? How much did he have on him? I wonder how many other crimes occurred that day? What a waste of time and effort all things considered. In CA. this is considered a massive "waste of time". I don't want it to be taxed, but taxing it would bring in far more money with less overall effort.

Yeah I grew up there Moe. I liked the city and appreciated it for what it was. It is not one of the worst cities in America at all. You need to look around to other places. Cops there can be crooked for sure, doesn't make it a bad place to grow up. I loved it and wouldn't have traded it for the world! I got MTV, bought alcohol and everything else I wanted to do. Not sure where the prohibition is you mentioned. We are also proud of our military and welcome them.

This guy and his broyher are 2 losers that will spin out and crash soon enough. Billy's wife looks like Casper she has to be on something. If I had that Mother they have I would probably mainline Drano. That is one whacked out family.
