You Got a Joint? It’d Be a Lot Cooler if You Did


LincecumMitchIn one of the least surprising misdemeanors of all time, 2008 Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum was pulled over for speeding just over the Oregon border in Washington. His 2006 Mercedes was clocked going 74 in a 60 zone,
which frankly is a ridiculous reason to be pulled over, and when the police officer approached the window the smell of weed came out.
Lincecum, after being asked by the officer handed over a pipe and about 3.3 grams of weed, in one bud. Under Washington law any amount of weed under 40 grams is considered for personal use.
“It’s not really out of the ordinary. It happens every day,” Washington State Patrolman Steve Schatzel said of the amount of weed Lincecum had with him. “It was about the size of a thumb, the whole thumb.”

All told, Lincecum could face a $622 fine for the misdemeanor possession, paraphernalia and the speeding ticket. Despite making a mere $650,000, this shouldn’t put Tim in the poor-house.
