Joel Madden on Marijuana Bust: ‘I Hope I Didn’t Cause Too Much Drama’

Joel Madden is trying to nip his troubles in the bud.

The Good Charlotte frontman landed in hot water after police found a small amount of marijuana in his hotel room at the Star Sydney Casino & Hotel in Sydney, Australia, where he has been living while appearing on an iteration of The Voice.

But before the situation could spiral too far, Madden, 34, confronted the issue head on in a post on his Tumblr page:

Madden’s message came after the Sydney Morning Herald reported that the rocker was on hand when police searched his room, after which he was asked to vacate immediately.

It seems Madden — who is married to fashion maven Nicole Richie, with whom he has two children — was let off with a mere warning because he had less than five grams of green.

Seems only right since Rihanna can get away with lighting up all over social media.
