Montel Williams cited for drug paraphernalia

The Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office in Wisconsin has confirmed that former talk show host Montel Williams was issued a citation for possession of drug paraphernalia at General Mitchell International Airport on Tuesday.

Williams was caught by TSA with a pipe commonly used for marijuana while going through a security checkpoint, a sheriff's spokesperson said.  He paid the citation of $484 and was released to resume his travel plans.

Williams suffers from multiple sclerosis and is a prominent advocate for legalizing marijuana for medicinal purposes.

    It's funny and sad to read the comments from the people who say that marijuana should be legalized because it means they smoke it.

    The only ones who think marijuana should be legalized are stoners.

      Wow, you mean that 46.5% of Californians enjoy cannabis? Wow, that's almost 12 million adults, and SAMHSA reports less than 20 million people nationwide enjoyed cannabis in the past 30 days use.

    The war on drugs has nothing to with drugs. The war is being waged on HEMP. $$$$$

    check out votehemp.com

    Open your eyes and ears, think about the direction the USA has been going for close to a century. $$$$$
    In a nutshell, big $$$$$ trumps right(s), at least in this ridiculous version of the USA. $$$$$
    If you follow the $$$$$, you find the reason hemp and MJ are illegal.

    I am a devoted pot smoker for 30 years..... and further, I will continue to my last breath.

    Regards,
    A pothead
