Arrested for Pot Cookies …
and Other Weed Stuff

It’s 2019 and a grown ass man was arrested Saturday night for weed.
That man is ex-NBA player Kwame Brown … who was busted in Georgia with a bunch of marijuana … including pot-infused cookies, tea and mints.
The 2001 first overall pick was a passenger in his Mercedes-Benz van when it was pulled over by Brunswick PD late Saturday night … when cops say his car REEKED of weed.
Kwame copped to having weed in the car … and told law enforcement he had some in the trunk of the van. Sure enough, cops found a backpack with all the weed treats.
The 37-year-old was arrested and charged with felony possession of edible marijuana products and misdemeanor possession of less than one ounce of weed.
Worth noting — Brown is MASSIVE. Like, 7-ft tall big … and couldn’t fit in a regular cop car, so the cops had to wait for a bigger vehicle to transport him for booking.
Brown was released shortly after posting bond later Saturday.
Brown played for 7 different teams during his career … most notably the Washington Wizards and Los Angeles Lakers … after jumping straight from high school to the Association.
We recently spoke with Brown about his life after the NBA … and he told us how he was keeping busy and what he thought about the 1-and-done rule.
