Brown was suspended last year, and university officials tied the move to an incident in which he allegedly shoved a Baltimore police officer who visited the College Park campus as part of a shooting investigation.

Tommy Chong believes he got busted not for being a stoner but for having a public persona as a stoner. Authorities arrested the latter half of the comedy duo Cheech and Chong in February 2003. He was charged with selling drug paraphernalia - specifically, a bong with his picture on it - and shipping it across state lines. He served a nine-month prison term that ended in July. Calling the charge a "commerce technicality," Chong said he believes the government went after him because of his counterculture rep, which he owes to the six gold comedy albums he recorded with Cheech Marin and to their series of pot-fueled movies, starting with Up in Smoke in the '70s.
