LOL, why doesnt anyone else have an open mind?

-- San Francisco Giants star pitcher Tim Lincecum is facing misdemeanor marijuana charges following a traffic stop in his home state.

Washington State Patrol spokesman Steve Schatzel said Thursday that the 2008 Cy Young Award winner and former star at the University of Washington was pulled over for speeding on Interstate 5 in the town of Hazel Dell, about four miles north of the Oregon border, on Oct. 30.


Lincecum

An officer approached Lincecum's 2006 Mercedes and smelled marijuana as the pitcher rolled down his window. Schatzel said Lincecum immediately complied with a request to hand over the drug and a marijuana pipe from the car's center console.

The amount measured was 3.3 grams. Schatzel said police consider that a small amount for personal use, well below the maximum of 40 grams before possession is classified differently and carries a more severe penalty.


Teammates consider the smallish right-hander a quirky perfectionist. They also consider him the "Franchise," the nickname they gave him when he broke into the big leagues only a year out of college. Others see his boyish face, shaggy dark hair, diminutive frame -- and his dominance -- and call him "The Freak."


The incident was first reported by The Columbian in Vancouver, Wash.

"It's not really out of the ordinary. It happens every day," Schatzel said of the volume of marijuana Lincecum handed over. "It was about the size of a thumb, the whole thumb."

Lincecum could face potential fines totaling $622 for the misdemeanor possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia counts plus the citation for driving 74 mph in a 60 mph zone, Schatzel said.

The 25-year-old All-Star starter entered a plea of not guilty through his attorney on Monday, according to records in Clark County District Court. A hearing that had been scheduled for Friday morning was canceled, pending a pretrial conference between Lincecum's attorney and a county prosecutor on Nov. 23.




If he went to a "Dr.", how f'd up on pills would he be? Lincecum was unreal this year, and he plays in SF. I would rather smoke some weed than take the cocktail of anti-anxiety/depression drugs that the local "dr" would have "prescribed".

Take uppers, downers, killers, stimulants, relaxants legally...but GOD FORBID ( ) using something that is natural. Yes, natural.

I really do not understand people.
Most of the time they get caught for things they can control-speeding, brken break light, etc.
I really do not even understand the mentality about doing it in the car where the risk is clear. Why give the police a chance to stop you?

The 'M' laws in this country are ridiculous and should be changed immediately.
Much less dangerous than alchohol and tobaccco. The fact that people go to prison for a joint is wrong, wrong, wrong. Personal use and possession in their own homes should be leagl.

skyponydogboy just said about everything I have to say on the subject. Fortunately under the Obama administration it looks like we are finally taking steps in the right direction. A friend of mine was commenting two weeks ago about visiting his elderly Mother in a nursing home. He said she gets very anxious and when she does they give her a prescription pill to calm her down, he didn't say what. My comment was, "Yeah, that's the solution for her generation. You or I would just smoke a joint, a much more natural and safe solution with little or no side effects."

my grandma is also sick....she has lung cancer, and the doctors are prescribing all kinds of pills and physical therapy. She knows that shes dying, at 82, having smoked cigarettes for 60 years, its been a long time coming. And tomorrow, if she said that it makes her feel better to pick up sticks, eat broccoli, paint the shed, or smoke weed, I would be relieved to know that some of the pain has been subsided, and her mind is not thinking about the inevitable.


"...we all know about marijuana's effects on depth perception" lol dude are you a middle school teacher? no offense, but really?

but driving up to .07% drunk, or taking PRESCRIBED medicine like vicodin, xanax, zoloft, and even oxycontin, which is basically heroin, is legally ok. i guess if someone wants to drive after smoking, they should take a xanax to relax, and a red bull to focus.

skydogpony sum up my feelings on marijuana and I don't even smoke the stuff anymore.

I'm a very liberal person, so I always hate bringing up the next thing though... I feel as people we forget our place when driving. We are basically operating giant heavy machinery that is instantly turned into a weapon. I believe people should be held responsible for their driving actions, (whatever the reason for their actions may be). I don't feel that the fines on tickets are always fair and of course there are exceptions to rules or times where police abuse their authority. However, I do get tired of people griping about how they got a ticket or got in an accident when they were doing something stupid. (Dude I was only going 45 in a 25!)

I don't care if he's smoking weed...but driving should definitely be done sober...we all know about marijuana's effects on depth perception...which is an important thing to be able to perceive while driving, imo...no sense in stopping for a traffic light an eighth of a mile in advance.


I think I read some study that said potsmoking drivers have no greater accident rates than "sober" drivers. I think it had to do with the paranoia factor. A little paranoia behind the wheel is a good thing.

But let's legalize first, then we can talk about the benefits of highway highs.

totally cool...not offended, and no offense , but I dont talk about any of the effects of anything I havent done, or tryed myself. If what they told me was true, by now I should be a junkie living in a box. Use your intelligence and perception to see through the bull **** that has been shovel fed to us since we were little kids. Everyone on this site has both, or else we wouldnt have such great taste in music.

I just dont think that being stoned has anything to do with car accidents. Cellphones, ipods, food, alcohol, prescription pills, and idiots do.

Now that we have Breckenridge, CO actually legalizing it for all use, not just medical (I know, largely symbolic as the state law overrides this local law) busts like this seem strange...

Baby steps, turning into larger steps....

I believe driving under the influence of any drug is wrong. I am guilty in the past of doing exactly what Linceum is being charged with, i just was not caught...did not make it right. I am a horrible driver when stoned and I think it does impair ones driving.

And I agree that cell phones ipods, makeup, reading...........and driving don't mix

Cy Young award . . . 8 gold medals . . .

To expound upon a Todd Snider quip, instead of rethinking our opinion on athletes who smoke marijuana, maybe we need to rethink marijuana.
