DON'T DO DRUGS
The plane wasn’t the only thing coming down from being high when comedian Jim Belushi landed at Martha’s Vineyard last Friday. The television star was forced to give up a marijuana joint upon landing after authorities found a small amount of weed in Jimbo’s shirt pocket. “You can’t use that card here pal,” was what the actor was told by TSA officials when he presented his Californian Medical Marijuana Card.
Although the brother of the late John Belushi was sporting the card, no doubt for his infamous gout, the TSA officials were having none of it. Since when was something being “According To Jim” not enough? Obviously the TSA officials were not huge fans of the sitcom. But who doesn’t love a lazy ass yet lovable dad? We bet Cheryl wouldn’t mind Jim having a blaze as he looks after the kids; or him and Andy slipping out to the garage for a session and some air guitar. But sadly there was no canned laughter or a hearty “Oh Jim!” when the West Tisbury police came sirens blaring. Not even a “But I was in K-9 I, II and III” couldn't save Jim’s beloved high. Lucky for the 58 year old, weed possession in Massachusetts is decriminalized and he was simply forced to empty his pockets and give up the goods.
Jim and his publicity team are yet to release a joint statement about the incident.
A man suffering from a rare condition called priapism (which causes painful erections that last several hours), was hard up for cash and robbed his dad for drug money in an Upper East Side hold-up. According to his dad, David Miller, 30, has become a drug addict since being prescribed oxycodone to deal with his condition.
On August 23rd, Miller broke into his father's apartment on York Avenue, pulled out a knife (a real knife, not his erection) and threatened, "I want you out, and I want money!" The father, who is so used to dealing with his son's raging condition kept his composure, called the police and had him arrested. He commented, “My son has a very rare disease, he has a priapism, which means he gets an erection that lasts five or six hours, and it’s very painful,” explained Tommy Miller, 57. “They gave him oxycodone. That’s his problem. He’s addicted to drugs now. He’s been sick since he was a little boy. He has an enzyme deficiency,” he said. “I had him arrested. I bailed him out.”
