Hoosier Cops:

There's Pot in

Bret Michaels' Bus

7/22/2010 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Indiana cops claim they found pot and other illegal drugs in two of Bret Michaels' tour buses last night.

0722_bret_michaels_BN
The DeKalb County Sheriff's Office tells TMZ Bret was onboard one of buses when cops made the stop at around 11:30 PM.  K9s found the pot.  One of the buses -- not the one Bret was on -- had Schedule II controlled substances inside, and cops tells us they're illegal drugs.

Citations were issued but no arrests were made.  The case is being forwarded to DeKalb prosecutors.

Michaels' rep gave us the following statement:

"Two of Bret’s tour buses were pulled over late last night. Officers on the scene claimed there were no trailer tag lights. No arrests were made. Mr. Michaels allowed an open search of the buses and everything was handled in a professional manner."

Oh give me a break #5 "Q" there were 3 buses full of musicians, roadies and other friends of band members and managers. Who said the drugs were Brets .. frankly if Bret lives in CA he can probably get prescribed Pot and it would sure be a hell of alot less dangerous and addictive than anything the doctors and drug companies would love to shove down your throat for hundreds of dollars a bottle. Also Bret has said on many occasions that he mostly drinks non-alcoholic beer, and the most dangerous activity he engaged in during his hay day as in the 80's was getting tattoos since the healing can really tough on someone with diabetes. Jeeze if you are going to rant about drugs get over to the Lilo articles.

Another article stated that Bret wasn't even on the bus that the dogs smelled pot on.....

And the narcotics could be "tada!", the ones that are prescribed for his medical conditions....hmmm - what a concept.

Basically, the dogs smelled pot - but no paraphanalia was found. For a VIP fee, on Bret's last tour with Lynard Skynard, you could visit his bus....

I'm just betting that some Lynard Skynard fans might be doing a little pot.

Talk about a non-story. AND to the people who talk about what an idiot Bret is - you have no idea what you're talking about - most of the time, he really ISN'T drinking - even on Rock of Love...it's all an act.

In California, we got off our lazy asses & passed laws so we can smoke pot. We'll soon vote on whether to legalize POT here.

Those of you getting harassed in other States - change your laws or continue smoking in fear. Your choice.

How is it that they found "illegal drugs" and no arrests were made?!? You don't give tickets for illegal drugs! More celebrity injustice. Would they let some poor guy in an old car off with a warning for carrying illegal drugs?!? Don't think so.

Give me a break! Bret is traveling with his band. Maybe the stuff belonged to them! He DID recently perform with Jimmy Buffett...need I say more? Lots of bands drink and smoke pot. Haters are just targeting Bret because they are jealous.

Bret...you handled it with class like everything else in your life. We love you. Rock on!!
