Busted for Pot On the Go ...

Singer Frank Ocean learned an important lesson on New Year's Eve -- don't speed when you got pot in your pocket ... and now, he's paying the price.

Law enforcement tells TMZ, Ocean was pulled over in Mono County, CA for going roughly 90 in a 65 -- and when officers approached his black BMW, they smelled the odor of marijuana emanating from his vehicle.

According to law enforcement, cops searched Ocean and found a small bag of pot on his person. 

We're told Ocean was cited for marijuana possession, driving on a suspended license, and tinted windows.

Ocean was released on the spot, but his passenger had to drive him home -- because cops confiscated Ocean's license.

Calls to Ocean's camp weren't returned.

The courts ruled once that odor alone does not provide justification for a search. I wonder whatever happened to that. Although in this case you have odor and speeding.

Good. Need to enforce the laws that are on the books rather than making a lot of new ones. DUI on a suspended license? So why did he not go to jail? He needs to lose his license for a couple of years and a hefty fine before he kills or maims someone.

What an idiot! Driving around smoking weed AND going nearly 30 miles over the speed limit? He deserved to get busted.

This is so much bullchit, because pot is even legal in a couple of states, so maybe the american keystone cops should invest their resources and court time for violent criminals.

Poor Frank! Too bad his name wasn't Lindsay because he would have gone to court and the judge would have slapped him on the wrist and he would have been on his way! With all the accidents that Lindsay and Amanda Brynes have been involved in I don't think they lost their licenses for 5 MINUTES! CA is more screwed up and crooked than even Chicago!
