ESPN: San Francisco Giants star pitcher Tim Lincecum 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 in the town of Hazel Dell, about four miles north of the Oregon border, on Oct. 30.

An officer approached Lincecum’s 2006 Mercedes and smelled marijuana as the pitcher rolled down his window. Schatzel said Lincecum immediately complied with a request to hand over the drug and a marijuana pipe from the car’s center console.

The amount measured was 3.3 grams. Schatzel said police consider that a small amount for personal use, well below the maximum of 40 grams before possession is classified differently and carries a more severe penalty.

When questioned by police as to whether he intended to sell his weed, Tim responded “Dag B, shit.. that eighth was barely gonna get me through the morning”.

You know Tim Lincecum probably was coming from some ill ass growhouse on the Canada border. His man gave him a generous (3.3) eighth, cuz he didn’t want to be shortin’ Tim Lincecum. Or maybe the cops just rounded it up on their scale to be douchebags?

Either way, its lucky for Lincecum he is on a below average team in a state where everyone smokes, so this won’t get too much coverage unlike Mikey Phelps.

Still though, where do you draft Tim knowing he’s a pothead for next year in fantasy? Late first, in my book.

    Clearly I'll comment here, niec find AK, good write up.
    One thing, an 1/8 is 3.5g. I'm guessing you still might be right with the heavy 1/8 since he prob smoked a l or two at the dealer then had a bowl in the car. prob 0.2, hence 3.3.

    Guy is up in my book now. hurray for weed, and hurray for no Phelps like issues.
