Paris Hilton

Busted for Pot

... Again

7/17/2010 4:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton was detained at a private airport on the French Island of Corsica after authorities discovered she had pot in her purse, this according to the AFP.

Hilton was found to have less than a gram of pot and was released shortly thereafter.

If any of this sounds familiar, that's because it is -- Paris was held briefly for the same thing two weeks ago while watching the World Cup in South Africa. Cops let Paris skate after they decided it was her friend who had the weed.

Looks like Paris is gonna need another friend.

UPDATE: For her part, Paris tweeted the following: "So sick of people making up rumors about me. The latest one about me is completely false too. Don't believe what you read. Silly nonsense." A few hours later, she tweeted a photo of herself ... on a jet ski.

Ernie, I don't know why you have seen some many people go to prison for drugs but, I don't know anybody in the system besides friends who are cops, attorneys, or probation officers. However, I am aware of the overcrowding of our prisons due to the prohibition of drugs.

According to the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice (CJCJ), the arrest rate for all offenses in California sank by 40% from 1990 to 2008, with arrests for rape and murder falling by more than 60% each. Drug possession arrests for everything but marijuana collectively fell by nearly 30% in the same period. Meanwhile, arrests for marijuana possession have skyrocketed -- up 127%. This rise in marijuana arrests is the ultimate outlier.

NEW FBI NUMBERS SHOW FAILURE OF "WAR ON DRUGS

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- A group of police and judges who want to legalize drugs pointed to new FBI numbers released today as evidence that the "war on drugs" is a failure that can never be won. The data, from the FBI's "Crime in the United States" report, shows that in 2008 there were 1,702,537 arrests for drug law violations, or one drug arrest every 18 seconds. "In our current economic climate, we simply cannot afford to keep arresting more than three people every minute in the failed 'war on drugs,'" said Jack Cole, a retired undercover narcotics detective who now heads the group Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP).

Driven by the Drug War, the U.S. prison population is six to ten times as high as most Western European nations. The United States is a close second only to Russia in its rate of incarceration per 100,000 people. In 2005, more than 786,000 people were arrested in this country for marijuana-related offenses alone.

Prohibition did not work in the 1930’s for alcohol nor does it work today. We are wasting too much money trying to eradicate marijuana with absolutely no success. The fight against marijuana has led to "violent drug cartels" and "dealers in our schools and our streets" without reducing consumption.

Why are these young women constantly allowed to walk? Robert Downey, Jr. had to face many consequences before he figured it out. Of course he has talent, and she has what??

Come on you guys, cut her some slack. It was an old purse, and she can't remember anything about the last party she took it to because she passed out. She didn't know it was left in there. She was heading home because she thought she was out and it was dry on the island. Don't hate rich dumb bimbos, pity them for they are pathetic.

She needs to stay out of the news. WHO cares about her or what best friends she wants to have. She does nothing. I can't sleep in any Hilton hotels because of her.

What I'm wondering is, why the hell is she carrying her own pot? Doesn't this dumb blond have enough money to pay someone to try and smuggle pot for her?
