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.

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!

so many people getting citations for illegal tinted car windows, so gotta ask.....why are installer shops and retailers getting citations upfront for installing and selling the tint.

It's Dave    

He should not have been speeding. That's putting innocent lives at risk and is unacceptable. As for the pot...it's just like alcohol - if you've overindulged then don't drive. The charge of possession is a joke. Everybody in California who wants a medical marijuana card has one and therefore is probably in possession of some small amount of pot at any given moment. Maybe we should set up pot road blocks to rough up the soccer mom's and confiscate their pot. It's a joke that it isn't just straight out legal already. Medical marijuana dispensaries in California brought in over 2 billion dollars in taxable revenue last year.

Heavily tinted windows are far more dangerous than pot. Legalize ghanja!
