Grammy-winning singer Rihanna is making some hot press as reports claim her tour buses were stopped by border patrol and marijuana turned up during the search.
Details of the incident and weed discovery surfaced online Wednesday (March 20).
Rihanna's tour buses were stopped at the border between Michigan and Canada ... and law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... authorities found weed. A total of 10 buses were stopped at the Ambassador Bridge, which separates Windsor, Canada and Detroit. Inspectors smelled marijuana on one of the buses and initiated a secondary, bus-to-bus search.

After a brief search with some help of dogs, marijuana was found on one of the bus passengers.
Inspectors then brought drug-sniffing dogs on board, and one of them made a beeline for a passenger and authorities found he was in possession of pot. We're told he was cited with a civil penalty. Rihanna was not on any of the buses. The real headline -- they only found a "small amount" of marijuana on one person in one bus. Who woulda thunk? (TMZ)
In a recent ELLE interview, the hit-making singer killed drug and alcohol addiction rumors.
"Everybody wanted to know what was happening in my life. Is she a drug addict? No. Is she an alcoholic? No. Is she a victim? No," the songstress said. "That's when I got the gun. It was a symbol of strength. I'll never be a victim." (ELLE)
Back in January, New York rapper A$AP Rocky credited marijuana as being a common interest he shares with RiRi.
"Rihanna is a pothead and so am I, so we're real cool. Weed is going to bring us together as a generation. Drugs is what created Woodstock. Let's be clear about that," Rocky said in an interview. "I want to do movies. But not only that, I want to be a motivation for people. I want to be an activist and really inspire the hopeless youngbloods. I want to let them know that there's hope out there. Life is a b*tch, but there's always hope." (Rolling Stone)
