Tim Lincecum smokes weed, who'da thunk it??!!

This is off the topic of NBA, but too good not to post. Yeah, an 1/8th of chronic is "small" to have for personal use?! Maybe at home in your drawer or if you're Snoop Dog -- but on your car ride?! He must have just swooped the sack up from his homeboys place. Anyone non-famous would have been sent to jail.

SEATTLE (AP)—San Francisco Giants star pitcher Tim Lincecum(notes) 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 about four miles north of the Oregon border on Oct. 30.

An officer approached Lincecum’s 2006 Mercedes and smelled marijuana. Schatzel says Lincecum immediately complied with a request to hand over the drug and a marijuana pipe.

The amount measured was 3.3 grams. Schatzel says police consider that a small amount for personal use.

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.
