Jim Belushi

Weed SNAFU

In Martha's Vineyard

EXCLUSIVE

Jim Belushi just learned a valuable lesson.
Jim Belushi
just learned a valuable lesson -- don't fly into Martha's Vineyard with a fat ass joint in your pocket ... unless you wanna lose it.

Sources tell TMZ, Jim was at the uppity Martha's Vineyard airport on Friday -- when TSA agents discovered a marijuana cigarette on the actor's person.

We're told Jim tried to justify his pot by brandishing his California medical marijuana card -- but he quickly learned ... medical marijuana cards don't mean jack in Massachusetts.

We're told the West Tisbury Police were notified ... but since the amount was so small -- and marijuana possession has been decriminalized in Massachusetts -- cops just confiscated the drug and let Jim off with a warning.

Total buzz kill. Calls to Jim's camp were not returned.

Tammy they didn't legalize it here so usually they will take it away if you are caught with it, but by decriminalizing it now even though they will confiscate it (usually, not always) there are no charges or arrests.. unless you are caught selling or with large amounts (intent to sell).

Jim Belushi probably needs a medical marijuana card like a cat needs a football. LOL!

Marthas Vineyard is not uppity..Maybe the celebrities that buy the million dollar houses and come visit for three weekends out of the year are, but the people who actually live and work there are regular folks..

End cancer, legalize marijuana, and recognize constitutional decisions. http://www.ontariocourts.on.ca/decisions/2000/july/parker.htm

How on earth did Jim Belushi get to be the celebrity he is? Does anyone out there really think he's funny or has acting chops? Famous brother and famous brother famous friend Akroid I guess is enough to justify a lenghty career.

Weed goes great with Blues Brothers music. Maybe he was going to the beach with his ipod. Man, I miss John and that insanely hot band. Their music still holds up.

Brother John is buried on M.V.

Although he was disinterred and moved to a different site than his original resting place.

Large and simple rock headstone that simply said "Belushi".

Its time states start recognizing your rights when you are in another state. They do for marriages don't they?
