The drag queen who shante'd his way to the championship on "RuPaul's Drag Race" Season 2 was arrested in Georgia this week ... all over a teeny, tiny package ... of weed.

According to the Gwinnett County Detention Center, 23-year-old James Ross -- better known by his fabulous alter-ego Tyra Sanchez -- was arrested Tuesday night for being in possession of a small amount of marijuana ... less than one ounce.

Officials tell us Ross was allowed to sashay his way out of jail the following day after posting bond.

8:25 AM: According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Ross was a passenger in a Chevy Impala that had been pulled over for having illegal window tint.

The officer claims he could "smell an odor of raw marijuana" -- and conducted a search of the car. The officer claims he found "loose green leafy material consistent with marijuana" inside the vehicle ... so he arrested both Ross and the driver for weed possession.

Most town budgets can barely keep their towns running and this is how they waste those resources... less than an ounce? Yeah that was worth the cost of arrest, booking, charging, and going to court? Must not be any real crimes going on in Georgia I guess.

Why do you give it these cute little harmless nicknames, it's marijauna, it's an illegal drug. Not cute, not harmless, not beneficial in any way. Even cancer victims have the option of taking it in pill form but no most insist on smoking it. All because a bunch o****ing hippies insist it is "good" weed. It's magic, should be legalized. People who smoke this crap are just as much at risk for lung disease and throat cancer as idiots who smoke cigarettes. Ever see an old braindead pothead? Yeah that stuff's harmless.

Wow, thank once again to the police for keeping murderers like this off the streets. I'm sure that cop went home, kissed his husband and got spooned, with a smile on his face due to his heroism. Weed is a gateway drug....for cigs. I smoke weed, you smoke weed, we ALL smoke weed. Put the cigs down..

LMAO @ "Ross was allowed to sashay his way out of jail". That's what RuPaul tell the contestants who lose...."now sashay away".....I crack up every time he says that.

That's a bad pic of Tyra....dude is gorgeous when he put on his drag queen makeup.
