Art Garfunkel (b. November 5, 1941)
On February 4, 2004 singer Art Garfunkel, part of the folk music duo Simon and Garfunkel, pleaded guilty to marijuana possession. Police had pulled over his limousine for speeding in upstate New York on January 17 and Garfunkel, 62, was caught with a small amount of marijuana in his jacket pocket. He paid a $100 fine. He was arrested for the same offense a short time thereafter.
While the INS was attempting to deport VIP John Lennon, ostensibly over an old marijuana bust in England, Garfunkel said, "If John Lennon is deported, I'm leaving too... with my musicians... and my marijuana."
