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.

Tatianna should have won that season. Tyra was shown WAY too much favoritism by RuPaul.

Wait until the new remake of the bewitched sitcom that will air on CBS. Jenny McCarthy will be playing samantha stephens role. I wonder if they will cast Betty White as aunt clara ?

I saw this queen about a month ago shopping in the Florida Mall- had finger polish and dressed as a sissy. And no one should be arrested for smoking weed, the way this econonmy going we should be allowed to smoke when ever we want. Its good for the nerves and the lord made it.

Sorry girl, but you are entitled to your opinion, but Tyra was the best girl for the title. Miss Titianna was too hard, too angry, and too entitled. She thought she deserved the title more than anyone else, because of....... being white? RuPaul chose the right person. Don't hate, appreciate. Go Tyra!

Hell Miss Tyra, no big deal. But, be careful with whom you associate, you are in the spotlight, with a bulls eye on your back. I live in the San Francisco area where pot is no big deal so I don't judge you. Keep your head up and continue to be a "Grand Bitch." I enjoyed watching you on RuPaul's Drag Race, You were so pretty and so confident. Oh, did I forget Fabulous? I am looking forward to seeing more of you. I think you would be a great model. How is your son?
