Taran Noah Smith
, the youngest kid from "Home Improvement," was arrested early this morning for alleged DUI and possession of drugs -- hash, to be specific.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... 27-year-old Smith was arrested in LA County around 1:00AM. Cops believe he was under the influence of marijuana at the time of his arrest -- and we're told they also found a stash of hash ... a type of marijuana.

Smith, best known for his role as little Mark Taylor, is still in custody ... currently being booked for the DUI and the drug possession, which is a felony.

Sources tell us ... Smith was behind the wheel of his 1998 silver Honda Accord, which was parked at an angle in front of a fire hydrant when an officer decided to investigate the situation.

We're told the officer smelled a "strong odor" of weed and believed Smith was under the influence.

Not surprised considering he's had so many familial and personal problems that started with his "dark" phase during the last couple of seasons on Home Improvement. Kid needs help....still.

What a waste of taxpayers' money to bust pot smokers, good lawd. Cops are afraid to bust real criminals.

Possession charge is bullsh*t but if he was high while driving then the DUI is warranted. Just because smoking doesn't mess you up as much as alcohol doesn't mean that your reflects and perception aren't altered. Best to leave the car in the driveway and walk to the store for that bag of chips.

So many sit-com kids go to drugs later in life. I wonder if it is because they thought they would always be "stars" Unfortunately, the only child actor I can think of who became an adult working in Hollywood is Ron Howard. Poor kid.

Wonder if he thinks a cab would've been cheaper now? I just don't understand all these DUI's, not enough brain cells left to call a cab?

I say screw the possession charge... BUT.. charge him with the DUI. I don't care what people do on their own time, but if you're going to get high and then drive, you ARE potentially putting others at risk. Pot does slow down reaction times and it does hinder your ability to focus. Just like drinking, do it all you want, just don't drive.
