Lennon In Police Drugs Blunder
JOHN LENNON was once escorted by police from a drug dealer's house with a pocket-full of marijuana, according to former British Prime Minister TONY BLAIR's father-in-law.
The late Beatle was discovered inside the den when a group of screaming women surrounded the London flat during the incident in 1969. Police then rang Lennon to offer to escort him safely from the building.
But the cops were unaware the singer was carrying 11 pounds (4.9 kilogrammes) of marijuana in his pocket when they ushered him to the safety of a waiting police car.
Tony Booth - who was scoring drugs at the house at the time - says, Lennon "killed himself with laughter" over the incident.
