Here is a valuable tip. If you are carrying drugs, don't speed. Make sure your car is in working order, or better yet, take the bus. Aaron Carter forgot about these valuable lessons and is now sitting in a Texas County jail after being arrested in Kimble County Texas for allegedly possessing 2 ounces of pot.
Although 2 ounces is considered enough for two months use, that is in a normal person. People who have been subjected to the thought of having Paris Hilton as a sister-in-law routinely need at least that amount each week just to cope with the horror of having to call her "sis."
2 ounces is usually the cut off between so what and serious crime, and the same is true in Texas. Surprisingly though, or maybe not considering you could drink while driving in Texas until a few years ago, as long as you don't have any prior felony convictions, then the judge has to sentence you to probation with mandatory drug treatment. Of course since Texas doesn't have much money for social services, if a drug treatment facility does not exist in the county in which you were arrested, then the judge can just give you the probation. The judge can also waive all the fines. So, basically this whole thing is nothing. It would be something if you had a regular job and were sitting in jail instead of punching the clock this morning. But, for Aaron Carter it is just something to laugh about over the next bong.
