'Social Network' Star

I Learned My Lesson

After Pot Brownie Arrest

2/2/2012 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Social Network" star Armie Hammer -- the guy who played BOTH Winklevoss twins -- says he's learned one very important lesson about Texas ... a little weed can get you in a lot of trouble.

As we previously reported, Hammer was arrested at a border patrol checkpoint back in November, when drug dogs found 3 pot cookies and a bud brownie in his possession.

Hammer was at LAX yesterday ... where he told us what he's learned from the experience -- "Texas is one of those places where you dont want to mess around, period."

Armie says he can't get into specifics about the case for 90 days ... and that's because in Texas they don't mess around with pot -- and jail is on the line, so Armie wants to stay mum and hopefully skate with community service.

This is ridiculous.

Texas should take a page out of their super-hero congressman's book. He is running for President and is your country's only hope for any true change of direction, from your currently perilous course.

He stands by his word, and is consistent. A true statesman, like JFK and RFK were.

And he thinks the war on drugs is a horrible waste, just like MOST of your wars.

Time to wake up America.

You should be embarrassed Texas, for harassing a US citizen like that, in your state.

Ok, so Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg were both celebrities busted at the Sierra Vista checkpoint, but who the hell is this guy? He's been in like one movie i think??? Nobody even knew his name till he got busted there too and kept blabbing about it. The fact that he can't stop talking about it shows you just how publicity hungry he really is.

Sierra Blanca is a podunk redneck town that busts the famous for a little weed as a revenue stream. It's a little too much like Boss Hog and the Boar's Nest to even be funny. Don't give any of those fools your tourist dollars. STAY CLEAR OF SIERRA BLANCA TEXAS.

So glad the arrested this hardened criminal!!! Whatever, talk of legalization has been around forever and it ain't happening anytime soon (but I think it should). I think the lesson learned is just dont drive and be out and about with it. I might not be able to buy pot legally where I live (in Texas). I might not be able to by alcohol in my county (Texas). But I can conceal carry my gun. Maybe it is a good think I can't get high and drunk easily then.

Good grief. Could Texas please secede from the country already? Seriously, WTF.

Can't we all agree, for once and for all, to just sell-off that God forsaken state of Texas?!! That state is hell incarnate.

Dear TMZ writers.........you have used 'stay mum' completely out of context. Don't you have an Irish guy working for you?? If you are going to use Aussie/British slang then it would probably better if you got it right.....lmfao.
Keep up the good work,
