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?

This is actually a pretty big story. Typically, drug-free zones are around schools. They also carry minimum mandatory sentences. Which means, he can't plea out and if guilty, he gets 2 years (typically) in jail minimum.

This is what happens when the NBA players are locked out and not working. You'll see a lot of NBA players getting busted if they don't have a season. They have more money than they know what to do with it.

And the joke is that drugs are illegal so isn't everywhere pretty much a drug free zone? Yes school zones are drug free zones so the punishment is higher.

You are probably unaware but portland has many drug free zones primarily in the downtown area. They are also prostitution free zones. Basically if you are a known drug dealer or prostitute they can boot you from the area or stop you and search you without any reason other than the fact that you are in a drug-free zone.

A drug free zone may be a school zone or other area where children congregate.

Marcus is a rich and famous athlete so he will not get serve a day in prison, get fined or have a criminal record when his lawyers finish their work for him. If the other guy or girl in his car isn't rich or famous, he or she may have to serve 60 years in prison in Texas.
