These are The Breaks: Hip-Hop pioneer Kurtis Blow was busted with less than an ounce of marijuana at LAX after one of those invasive new TSA body scanners detected “an anomaly” in his pants.
Since marijuana has been fully decriminalized in California, the penalty for being busted with less than an ounce is a $100 and no jail time, even if you don’t pay the fine.
The TSA porno scanners that found Blow’s “anomaly” have come under fire recently as alarmed travellers learned the scanners record and save fully-nude photos and cause cancer at an alarming rate. Even worse, if would-be passengers opt-out of the naked body scan, they are forced to endure
pat-downs public sexual molestation by TSA flunkies who are required by the Obama Administration to grope their genitals and breasts. Here are some other disturbing articles about the body scanners and pat-downs, including one where a disgruntled passenger tells TSA agents he will have them arrested if they touch his “junk”.
This is the first I’ve heard of the scanners being used to bust people for pot, but I expect more of the same in the future.
Blow is considered to be the first rapper ever signed to a major record label – and I have always been a huge fan! Check out “The Breaks” by Kurtis Blow, the first rap record to reach “Gold” certification status. I wish hip-hop was still this good.
