See even Tim Smokes!

So to add to my positive proactive side to marijuana and its legalization process, breaking news was released today that our very own Tim Lincecum was busted on October 30th for a misdemeanor for marijuana possession. Yes my friends even little Timmy smokes the chronic.  The story goes like this:

At 8:23 a.m. Oct. 30th, Washington State Patrol trooper and spokesman Steve Schatzel said, a motorcycle trooper working with a laser device timed a 2006 Mercedes-Benz doing 74 mph northbound in Hazel Dell, where the speed limit is 60 mph.

The trooper pulled the Mercedes over. When the driver, Lincecum, rolled down his window, the trooper smelled marijuana. He asked Lincecum to hand it over, and Lincecum reached into his dashboard console and produced a small pouch and a pipe, Schatzel said. The amount was 3.3 grams, ( almost an 8th $50 going rate).

Lincecum was fined a total of $622 for driving at 74 mph in a 60 mph zone, and for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Both are misdemeanors.

I’m sure most will be “disappointed” but let the man do what he wants to do! Obviously it doesn’t effect his game, as he was the Cy Young last year and career 40-17 with a 2.90 ERA. This just fuels my fire that not everything  about marijuana is bad. People arent all lazy, or lack motivation. Lots of people get stoned to do every job you know. Just think of how many people you know who smoke who probably have a job and a solid if not successful life. This may  allow him to concentrate, relax, unwind or whatever that might help him in some way. I shouldn’t say it to loud as the MLB might say it enhances his ability to pitch. Wouldn’t that be something. Either way give Tim a break.
