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.
It looks like the objects students were practicing their levitation spells on weren’t the only things getting high at Hogwarts last semester. TMZ is reporting that “Jamie Waylett, the guy who played Vincent Crabbe in all five Potter flicks, was arrested in London on Thursday after cops say they found eight bags of weed in a car that Jamie and another man were in.”
And the reefer madness didn’t stop there. Apparently, when the police raided the young actor’s home later in the day, they found that “the 19-year old was keeping a weed garden in his home,” which consisted of multiple plants and “equipment for the cultivation of cannabis.” According to Perez Hilton, there were eight bags of marijuana in Waylett’s car, and about $3,000 worth of plants growing in his home.
