Chace Crawford Pot Case in D.A.'s Hands

6/10/2010 4:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0609_chace_crawford_mugshot_EX_SMChace Crawford's marijuana drama has reached the District Attorney in Collin County, Texas -- which will now decide whether or not to press charges against the "Gossip Girl" star following his pot bust last week.

As we first reported, Chace was arrested on June 4 outside of a pub in Plano, TX after cops say the actor was in possession of weed.

Sources say officers found one unlit joint inside of a car Chace was sitting in with a friend.

Chace was booked on one count of possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana -- a misdemeanor.

The charge carries a maximum penalty of 6 months in jail.

In California they'd let him go with a gold star on his, er, head.

Plano must be the most crimefree city in the USA if they feel the need to go through so much trouble and money. I'm not saying pot is not a crime but considering it was one joint that wasn't lit, a warning or citation would be more appropriate.

What's the big deal?
He's NOT going to jail because he's a celebrity.
Too bad; because he'd make a lot of "new" friends there.

Ridiculous. I don't know who this guy is, but cut him a break. It was just a joint. Get over it. Stop criminalizing people who commit victimless crimes. I'm from SC, but I strongly feel that the rest of the country needs to follow the example of what's happening in CA right now. Right is right. And wrong is wrong. And arresting people for pot is wrong. I don't even smoke pot, but it fires me up when I think about it. Prohibition doesn't work, let's learn from our own history. And it sure as hell wouldn't hurt to curb some of that ridiculous violence at the border if it was legalized. LEGALIZE IT!

In the state of Tennessee you get a ticket for a misdemeanor, is this not so in Texas?

A joint? 6 months in jail for some weed? WTF? Another excuse (as if anyone needed one) to not go to Texas. Glad I'm not a taxpayer there.



(Sarcasm) - good thing they took this menace to society off the streets!

6 months for a joint? Stupid stupid stupid archaic laws. Just legalize it and spend all that money fighting crimes that really matter like child molestation. Thousands of pervo priests get to hide behind the church and nothing happens to them but one kid gets caught with a joint and they want to put him away for 6 months. That's justice for ya. Shows just how messed up our society's morals really are.

I am in TX, no one goes to jail for 6 months for a joint. They have a program that he will need to attend a few times. My question is who is stupid enough to let any cop search your car like that? He should have spent the $ for the nevergetbusted.com dvd (it was done by a former cop).
