As long as he was not intoxicated while driving who cares if he enjoys a little weed. For all you mindless drones of the establishment, Dope has always been a term for heroin not pot. The use of the word for pot is just another attempt at making you afraid of this harmless substance by grouping it with harmful addictive drugs. How many TMZ staffers are casual users? Shame on you for covering these story's with terms like "big green drug bust" Hypocrites! 56% of Americans are against these arrest you might want to try a more sympathetic spin.
