Editor's Note: Welcome to The 4:20 CHRONICle. Everyday at 4:20 p.m. we'll pay tribute to the best time of the day and the best way to spend it. From offbeat marijuana-related news like this one to music to spark up to, if it's something to stick in your pipe and smoke, you'll find it here.
Almost 30 years ago, in 1981, the Rolling Stones dropped the song “Little T & A” on the album “Tattoo You." Last night Keith Richards 25-year-old daughter, Theodora Richards, was arrested in New York City for tagging the exterior walls of St. Anthony's Convent in Soho with graffiti reading "T (heart sign) A." According to the New York Post, Richards had marijuana and hydrocodone pills in her possession when she was arrested. Here's the meat and potatoes of the story, via the Post:
"I hope I don't get into trouble for this," Richards allegedly told cops, prosecutors said. Richards -- a self-described "bad girl" and friends with troubled model Kate Moss -- also had marijuana and hydrocodone pills in her possession at the time of the arrest, sources said. Richards had 8 1/2 pills in her purse and told cops she had bought them from a dealer. "I don't have a prescription for them," she allegedly told police, prosecutors said.
During an appearance this afternoon in Manhattan Supreme Court, Richards rejected a plea deal offered by prosecutors if she decided to plead guilt to disorderly conduct. The sweetheart deal meant Richards would have to serve two days of community service and spend a day in a drug treatment facility. The judge released Richards without asking for bail. Richards -- wearing a long wool peacoat and skinny jeans -- then ran out of the courthouse in a bid to avoid photographers. Her lawyer, Stacey Richman, called Richards "a lovely polite woman. She's fine."
4:20 Joint of the Day
"I smoke my head off. I smoke weed all the damn time. But that's my benign weed. That's all I take, that's all I do. But I do smoke, and I've got some really good hash." -- Keith Richards, 2008
