New York Police have confirmed they arrested rapper N.O.R.E. last week on
marijuana possession charges. Word is police found a joint and a bag of pot
in the MC’s car after pulling him over in Manhattan’s East Village last Wednesday after reports an illegal gun might be on board. No gun was found
but he was charged over the drugs and is now due to appear in court on 9 Oct. Not so serious compared to the attempted murder charges the rapper faced in the early nineties – except of course in the US dope possession carries a maximum penalty of three months in jail.
