Robin Thicke Joins List of Busted Celebrity Stoners

Robin ThickeAnother day, another celebrity busted for smoking weed. This time it's Robin Thicke, soul crooner extraordinaire, who famously performed at the wedding reception of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. He was arrested Friday in Manhattan for possession of marijuana.

According to the New York Daily News, he was sitting in an Escalade with an unidentified person toking away on a joint. Officers smelled the substance, found a small amount, and arrested him. Sources say he was a good sport about it, and even took pictures with officers. That seems a little inappropriate on their part and like a pretty nice move on Thicke's part toward guys who just busted him. But hey, he was probably in a good mood after smoking.

It's certainly no secret that many celebrities smoke weed. They sing about, are pictured with it, and a few unlucky ones get busted ones for it. Here are few other celebrities who have been busted for pot possession that you may not know about:

Paul McCartney

The famous musician was arrested for possession in Japan in 1980 and spent a shocking 10 nights in jail there before being released. But he shouldn't be busted again because now, more than 30 years later, he told Rolling Stone that he's giving up pot for his daughter:

I smoked my share. When you're bringing up a youngster, your sense of responsibility does kick in, if you're lucky, at some point. Enough's enough – you just don't seem to think it's necessary.

Willie Nelson

In November 2010 Willie was on the road again, when his tour bus was stopped by Border Patrol agents at a checkpoint in Texas. They smelled the smoke, and Willie was singing a sad song.

Wiz Khalifa

The rapper was a little too boastful about his weed habit -- saying it ran about $10,000 a month and tweeted about his love for the substance. When police busted him for the drug, it was no surprise.

Montel Williams

Montel didn't even have any actual weed on him, just an empty pipe when officials busted him in the airport.

Paris Hilton

I think I've lost track of how many times she's had a run in with authorities for alleged drug use, but she was busted twice in one month back in the summer of 2010. There were also cocaine charges, but that's another drug for another story.

And the list goes on. Who will be next to join the club? We can only guess.

Does it change your opinion of celebrities when you find out they use drugs?
