George Michael's cannabis caution
UK - George Michael has been given a police caution for possession of cannabis.
The superstar singer admitted the offence and accepted the punishment at an early morning meeting with police in London yesterday (29.03.06).
The caution could be problematic for the star's career in the US - where officials can refuse visas for drug arrests.
Michael was originally arrested for two drug offences after being found slumped over the steering wheel of his car in London's West End last month.
But the second drug - initially thought to be popular clubbers' drug GHB, also known as liquid ecstasy - turned out to be legal substance amyl nitrate.
A police spokesman said at the time: "We were called by a member of the public to a man seen slumped over the steering wheel of a car on the street close to Hyde Park Corner.
"A search of the man revealed what was believed to be controlled substances."
According to reports, officers also found a stash of pornographic material, sex toys and sex masks in the boot of the vehicle.
