Seeing red and blue lights flashing makes almost anyone twitch with anxiety if they’re sitting on a stash of green. Still, us common folk aren’t the only ones freaked at the sight of the po-po. Celebrities and those with lifestyles of the rich and famous still face the same terror getting caught holding onto marijuana. They can just afford better legal counsel than us regulars.

While certainly far from the league of others making this list, Carlos Henderson’s arrest story deserves telling. Earlier this year police pulled Henderson and a friend over in Louisiana. Paranoid, Henderson scarfed the weed from under the passenger seat. Busted! When the suspicious cops told him to say, “Ah,” after seeing the remainder of a J, they saw his green-colored tongue. Caught red-handed? More like “caught green-tongued”.

 

6. Bill Murray

One of our favorite celebrities who got busted for weed is none other than Bill Murray. On his birthday in 1970, Murray attempted the ultimate trafficking. Enrolled in pre-med courses in Denver, he tried to transport weed through Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. A fellow passenger heard him joke about having a bomb. Joking about possessing explosives in an airport has never been advisable. Authorities searched him and his luggage. Instead of deadly weapons, they found ten pounds of weed.

 

5. Whitney Houston

The late “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” singer also found herself caught green-handed at an airport. Whitney was ballsy enough to keep it in her handbag while waiting for a flight from Hawaii to San Francisco. After being searched, the diva refused to wait before police arrived and boarded her flight anyway.

One night while enjoying some herb with his drummer Vic Berton, the police bust the two musicians. Unable to overcome their euphoria, the two spent the night giggling in the pen.

3. George Harrison

Bow down. He sang songs and enjoyed a toke with Willie, but mostly he stands alone. Many celebrities suffer the scrutinizing eye of the police, but none so much as Snoop. Arrested marijuana possession in 1998, 2001, 2006, 2007 and again in January 2013, Snoop earns the number one spot for being the most prolific individual charged with Mary Jane. Fun fact: he went to high school with actress Cameron Diaz—and sold her ganj from time to time.
