TMZ reported on March 20 that Rihanna’s fleet of tour buses were stopped at the Canadian border as they tried to come across from Michigan. Border authorities caught the scent of marijuana coming from one of the buses and ordered a full inspection of the fleet. Drug sniffing dogs were then brought in to assist with the intensive search.
The ten buses were stopped at the Ambassador Bridge, which separates Windsor, Canada from Detroit.
The bus-to-bus search did not yield the results authorities must have been hoping for. Only one passenger ended up being issued a ticket for possession. The ticketed passenger only had enough weed on him to warrant a civil charge.
Rihanna has made headlines in the past for her public marijuana use. Back in February she came under fire after tweeting a picture of herself holding up a bouquet of weed from her behaviorally challenged sometimes boyfriend Chris Brown. Over one million image results exist of the Barbados-born singer smoking the drug.
