Cops say TSA busted the former talk show host with a metal pipe commonly used to smoke marijuana ... as he went through security.

The pipe -- which was in his carry-on -- set off a metal detector. We're told there was no residue.

Montel is a long time advocate of medical marijuana -- which he uses to manage pain related to multiple sclerosis.

Montel was released after paying a $484 citation for possession of drug paraphernalia. The sheriff's department tells us Montel was very mellow cooperative.

This moran endorses a company that gives out loans to desperate people at high rates of interest, as bad as a payday loan.

The only one hitting the pipe was the network that ran his boring show with that fraud Sylvia Brown for 17 years.

Here is a guy with MS who is legally allowed to use marijuana to reduce pain and there is no residue in the pipe and he still gets busted.

medical marijuana can be a Godsend to people who truly need it. My husband fought brain cancer for 8 long years before he passed and marijuana helped with nasuea and appetite. Please don't judge those who are in so much pain.

I am sure it will be dropped or cancelled by the court. Its a medical device since he has a prescription.

I was so sorry to read the story but as a smart person such as yourself, WHY did u try to take it on the plane. Couldn't you afford to bye one at your next destination? Does everyone need to know your personal business? Good luck Montel, but next time leave it at home!!!

They really need to legalize weed already. He had some in a pipe hidden. BIG DEAL! They can go after real criminals that rape and kill people.
