Melissa Etheridge Delightful Mug Shot in Drug Bust ... 70s Rocker Arrested Too

Etheridge informed the police that she used marijuana to reduce pain associated with her cancer.

Melissa Etheridge - a passionate advocate for medical marijuana - was busted for drug possession in August. The substance is legal in her home state of California but should not have been in the vehicle as it is not yet federally legal.

She will perform the National Anthem on Sunday at the Chiefs vs. Steelers game to support the "Crucial Catch" campaign aimed to raise awareness about catching cancer early. As the substance isn't permitted in North Dakota, however, she was booked for possession of a controlled substance. She pled no guilty.

A rep for the singer was not immediately available to comment further to HuffPost. She has four children, a pair of 10-year-old twins as well as an 18-year-old son and a 20-year-old daughter. "It brings you much closer".

"I asked many of my friends [who had gone through chemo], 'What's the experience?"

'It was a wake-up call for me, ' she told Yahoo! Silencing critics, the singer said she would much rather smoke with her kids than drink alcohol with them. "Sometimes I find that I can say something, thinking that the whole world will understand, and they kind of go in another direction".

"My children are my priority", Etheridge said.

'I mean, going through chemotherapy is suffering... and cannabis helps so many parts of just that.

She has also been open about smoking pot with her adult children, and pushed back against those who might judge her for it. They are four of the most fantastic human beings on earth.
