Stone appeared in an L.A. County Superior Courtroom this morning ... after skipping a scheduled appearance last week due to complications from an existing medical condition.

As TMZ first reported, the 68-year-old musician was arrested on April 1 after cops say Stone was carrying freebase cocaine.

If convicted, Stone could face some serious time behind bars.

To all you people commenting on how Sly looks, the man is a 68 yr old crack head but he is still rocking style. If you want to help Sly out send a donation to my email account and I will greatly appreciate it.
