It might be because he was transferred from federal pound me in the ass prison in Arkansas to a halfway house in Hotlanta in a luxury tour bus, or because he was getting high on the bus, or because prison officials didn't like the idea of him filming a series for VH1 while technically still under custody. At any rate, T.I. was removed from the halfway house and taken to a prison in Atlanta where he'll serve out the remainder of his in sentence.
TMZ talked to some young guy claiming to be T.I.'s uncle, who said it definitely wasn't because T.I. was drinking on the bus. But if you notice, he didn't say shit about meth! I didn't realize until just yesterday that the reason T.I. got sent back last year was because he was on drugs, not because they found drugs, and I guess that's why Tiny got off. The possession charge was dropped. But they took T.I. in to pee in a cup, and his piss came up cloudy, thus violating the terms of probation from the last time he was in jail, when he had all of those guns.
The article I read didn't say what they found, but you have to wonder if it was just weed. Would they really send him back to federal pound me in the ass prison for damn near a year just for smoking weed? It was argued recently on an episode of Entourage, where I get my legal information, that if all you did was smoke a joint, the judge probably wouldn't sentence you to hard time. I think the judge is free to use his own discretion in cases like that, but I'd have to check. You guys know I was pre-med. It costs something like $200,000 a year to keep a dreaded n-word locked in the pokey for a year, even though they live in a tiny box and eat shit on a shingle. (The rest of that money must go to people who own shares in the prison, i.e. the Illuminati.) If T.I. had been free for this past year, he probably could have made enough to where he would have had to pay $200,000 in taxes. He could have funded some other dumbass' year in prison. This is a recession. You see what happened to Michael Vick. He came out the joint making $100 million. Not even $99 million, to pacify salty dog lovers. (No Boutros.) Half of that money is going right back to the government.
So we probably shouldn't rule out the possibility that T.I. is on meth. Remember, they found some meth in T.I.'s Maybach, when he got caught busting that illegal u-turn out in LA - the impetus for his most recent arrest. At the time, a lot of people wondered why Tiny, who's clearly on drugs, didn't just take the rap for T.I., and she said that people just don't understand that she couldn't, and I'm thinking that's because she took a piss test too, and she (of course) came up positive for like eight different things, but meth wasn't one of them, and like I said, T.I. scored in the hight 50s on his own piss test, and probably not just for weed. Lest we forget, weed is more or less legal in LA. I think you're supposed to have some sort of weed smokers ID (and hence pay a tax) to have it, but I doubt they throw the book at you if you don't. They might take it from you and try to sell it to someone else. T.I. could probably even get his own weed smokers ID, just based on the stress of constantly going back to prison, not to mention any infections resulting from not cleaning his nether regions, to deter potential prison rapists, as discussed in one of those great Martin Lawrence stand-up comedy films.
Or do you have to actually live in LA to get an LA weed smokers license? What if you get some sort of pied a terre(sp?)? A weed a terre, if you will. Keeping an apartment in another city seems like a lot of hassle just to have a nominal, questionable excuse to have drugs on you, but T.I. and his family obviously have a certain commitment to substance abuse. And whatever the cost, I'm sure it's less that what he stands to lose by spending yet another year in jail. I'd suggest T.I. have his people look into that, but his people didn't even have the sense to get from the prison to the halfway house without getting him in even more trouble. Maybe he should get some new people? Just sayin'...
