Pot is in the air.  Another pro athlete has been busted for pot possession.

Portland Trail Blazers star Marcus Camby was driving in Pearland, TX  Monday when police pulled him over for an equipment violation. That's when the officer noticed the car reeked of marijuana.

Cops tell us they found less than 2 ounces of pot, so Marcus and a buddy were busted.

Fun fact ... cops say Marcus and his friend were charged with possession of marijuana in a drug-free zone.

Where exactly are the drug zones?

In Texas, areas surrounding schools are considered "drug free zones" and fines and penalties are MUCH worse in these areas. It can become a Felony quick!

As many have said, drug free zones are usually areas in which children are know to be like schools, daycares, etc. AND yes, it is a stiffer penalty for being busted in a drug free zone. However, it does NOT automatically make it felony, it usually just bumps the offense to the next (higher) classification.

He was arrested in Pearland which is 10 mins south of Houston! They are notoriously known for they drug free zones within 500 yards of any school. So just means he was by a school when he got hacked up by the RACIST cops in Pearland... Only speaking from experience!

Cigarettes and alcohol are proven in the research to be more harmful than pot, so why is pot classified as a drug, unless you also classify cigarettes and alcohol as a drug? It's a simple question that cannot be answered by the multitude of politicians that you have elected to govern, and then pay half of your wages to during your lifetime. Suckers.
