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.

WoW! Montel had a pipe. They should lock him up and throw away the key. What's wrong with this country? He does have a horrible, horrible disease. Just letting you morons know, who want to call him a moron. It's called Multiple Sclerosis, idiots!

People can make a pipe out of just about anything, an apple, a soda can, some tin foil. If there was no residue on the pipe he should have never been charged. They sell those pipes for tobacco use only. The cops in Milwaukee are fooking stupid and have nothing better to do than harass people so I'm not surprised he got falsely charged for having a tobacco pipe.

Couldn't you have said pot pipe instead of drug pipe TMZ? A marijuana pipe is a "who cares" thing. When I first saw the headline I thought you were saying he was found with a crack pipe which would have been far more interesting.

I've pretty much against casual drug use of any sort (except caffeine :-) but this is ultra lame.

Medical marijuana is a miracle for those who need it. Unfortunately in California it has been turned into a big JOKE by all the slimeballs who write bogus prescriptions. People who have cancer, or conditions like MS, like Montel, really benefit from it. it's not a joke to those who really need it. Those who use it to just get high, well, I'm not a supporter.

Without residue that could be a tobacco pipe as easily
as pot if they fined him for it that states laws are retarded
heck you can buy pipes in carnivals in this state
and it isn't California.

How come Sylvia Browne didn't see this coming? You think with her "gift" she would have warned Montel, at least!

I have no high regards for a person, who shipped one of his children away so he could use his time smoking the funny stuff instead of parenting.
