    I hope they keep her and treat her just as they would any ordinary Jane caught there with marijuana. She may be above the law here in the U.S., but maybe not in South Africa.

    Paris was calm in court because she was still high from that Mother Land weed. THC levels in African weed would make an Elephant have a taste for Taco Belle.

    The only positive thing Ive heard about Paris Hilton in the last ten years is that she smokes pot.

    I don't know why people rag on CNN for putting stories like this alongside it's news. It's not like Fox Opinions actually puts out real news in the first place, so you buffoons should be complaining about that in the first place.

    Hardly Breaking News, unless being arrested for one of the worlds most non toxic plants is news. Unfortunately, it happens every second somewhere on the globe. Legalize and tax. Eliminate the gangs!

    Lock her up and keep her ..we really don't want her back....The reason she appeared so calm in court is because she knows she can just buy her way out $$$$$ talks and the sad truth is she has lots of it. The gov there will just fine her a bunch of cash and tell not to come back.. I would love to see her butt in a foreign jail..!!! But we all know it will never happen.
