My boy Tim Lincecum, who admittedly looks like a pothead, was caught - surprise - puffing on the green goodness in Washington on Oct. 30th. The news just broke today.

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, which is nothing (trust me, I know).

Anyway, Lincecum was cited and had to pay a speeding ticket, but I'm hardly shocked by this, since I think we all knew Lincecum was a pothead.

And hey, as long as he keeps having Cy Young worthy years each year, he can smoke whatever the hell he wants as far as I'm concerned.
