No, the shocking thing is not that George Clinton was arrested for possession. No-one could possibly be surprised to discover that Clinton is a drug user, even if crack is a more tacky than expected choice of poison. It's that he was sitting in a Nissan Sentra at the time he was caught. Not exactly The Mothership.
But... more seriously, I do hope he's not going follow the route of another hero of mine to become a PoW in the War On Drugs. What kind of system is it that ends up with people like Gil Scott Heron and George Clinton in jail for their victimless weaknesses?
