Kurtis Blow Busted for Weed After LAX Body Scan

12/2/2010 2:04 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... legendary rapper Kurtis Blow was busted at LAX this morning after a TSA body scanner detected an item in his pocket ... a stash of weed.

Kurtis Blow Body Scan
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the body scan detected "an anomaly' in his pants -- yes, we thought that was funny as well.  A subsequent pat down revealed pot in his pocket.

Kurtis received a ticket -- standard operating procedure when it's under an ounce -- and went on his merry way.

These are the breaks ... next time Mr. Blow, try the pat down.

Colin I agree with you. He could fight this and and there does need to be some legislation outlining what these scanners are for. As for the person who said she doesn't know who Curtis is, Google him idiot. You sound like the people who say Taylor Swift is not a star just because they don't know her. Curtis Blow is a rap pioneer.

Google him he started the whole rap thing from the start..Buuutttt the weed seems to be causing him to have problems remembering, with all the hoopla about the searches at the airport he should have known better.

C'mon people, if you are going to travel with your stash, at least be smart about it. If you plan on taking it with you to make your travel/vacation all it can be, why wouldn't you take the time to figure out your plan before heading to the airport? People like this clown deserve to get caught!! Dumbazz

Wow, it sounds as if you idiots approve of pot. I bet you're the same anal morons who complain about smokers and the second hand smoke.

#5 is right on the money. They are supposed to be searching for weapons. Instead they are using these searches as a profit center. Weed never took down a plane.

This is EXACTLY why I do not like to travel by plane... It is just ridiculous that we can not bring our HERB without being treated like a criminal! BUT my question for this situation is: DID YOU HAVE YOUR DOCTOR'S RECOMMENDATION WITH YOU, KB? Can they still give you a ticket if you do? I mean, it IS medicine!

I think he was on his way to bail out Willy Nelson. Or wait, he got his pants wet and borrowed a friends pair, and the weed just happened to be there. It must have been ****ty Mexican weed to not smell up the place. Good weed stinks.
