Good Charlotte member Joel Madden -- Nicole Richie's husband -- has been BOOTED from a hotel in Sydney, Australia on Sunday after officials say they found some pot in his room ... TMZ has learned.

According to police in New South Wales, Australia ... cops executed a search warrant at 10:30 pm Sunday night and seized a "small amount of plant matter believed to be cannabis."

Cops wouldn't say if the weed belonged to Madden -- but DID say a 34-year-old man was present during the search. FYI -- Joel is 34.

However, TMZ spoke with the manager of the Darling Hotel who did name names ... saying, "Joel Madden was ejected from the hotel because a small amount of cannabis was found inside his hotel room."

He added, "In Australia there is a 0 tolerance for this no matter where you are."

Searched HIS Room? WTF ! Since when is it legal for a hotel to search your room without your consent, even in Australia. Name the hotel TMZ so everyone can stay away and not have their rights violated.

I guess Australia is living in the past. I don't smoke weed but, I have nothing against it. I think it's silly to be worried about weed when we have much more important things to be concerned about. Silly Aussies.
