A History of Celebrities Getting Caught with Drugs

Notorious B.I.G.

Year: 1996
Drug caught with: Marijuana
Consequence: The '90s rap icon was arrested at his home in Teaneck, New Jersey when cops knocked on his door to ask him to move his car, which was parked illegally, and smelled marijuana coming from inside the home. When they entered Biggie's home, New Jersey police found a number of unregistered weapons and 50 grams of pot. The "Big Poppa" rapper was released on $150,000 bail. However, charges were never officially made following the 1997 sudden death of the rapper.
