    Honestly the band, especially chester, have a ton of reasons to stay away from anything like that. First rule of addiction recovery is to stay away from the sources of your addiction.

    My guess would be that LP's tour manager details keeping that stuff away when they set up the shows. Sublime ignored it (because no shit, it's sublime) and something is said to one of the local crew. Standard procedure would be to have security remove the problem aka "cops". Obviously they didn't just call the cops or it would have been a bigger deal than it simply being removed from the shared backstage area.

    I know there was a time for me when having drugs / alcohol around would have turned me into a fidgeting / craving anxiety ball, and totally ruined my ability to play a concert.

    I know the illegal thing had nothing to do with it by itself. Was talking to the security guys at riverfest yesterday waiting on buckcherry/three days grace to set up, and apparently they are specifically told to ignore that for artists. He specifically mentioned snoop dog last year. It's a condition of booking him that the cops and security look the other way. Would make sense that some bands would have the opposite.

    Every venue matches the drug environment, for lack of a better word, to the artist. It makes a show not suck. Sublime gets to get high before they play (they always play high), then fun's over because the next band (who pulls a lot more people than y'all sorry) doesn't want to be around it.

    The weird thing is that Sublime was smoking on stage, throughout pretty much their entire set. It comes to me as a surprise because the KFMA day lineup was announced a long time ago and it's not like it's a surprise that Sublime smokes weed lol. If LP did have a problem with weed, shouldn't they have contacted Sublime way in advance?

    chester wasnt addicted to pot, he had problems with meth and shit like this. pot cant cause a relapse, and chester still smokes cigarettes... also so many bands use it, why the band never did anything about it before?

    I was at the show and didn't notice anything out of the ordinary, but maybe Rome didn't tell the whole truth and they had more than just weed... That'd warrant a cop call from Chester for sure, and I'd fully support him on it. The taking of the weed might've just been a consequence of something bigger.

    It's possible they were just fucking around. Honestly I remember them smoking on the 2nd to last song of their set right before LP came on. If it did happen it seems like it was meant to be kept secret because I did not see any commotion from the stage crew.

    And I doubt LP would do anything to bring harm to Sublime With Rome, especially since Chester spoke their praises here:

    [video=youtube;z60TAbYG_eQ]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z60TAbYG_eQ[/video]

    And it's on Sublime's official YouTube. I'm calling this a joke by Sublime that gotten taken as something serious.

    Chester gets angry when Rome smokes pot. Hits the bottle and goes right to the rock.

    The guy who posted the tweets also follows Chester on Twitter, so it COULD just be a joke. But it seems weird to me that you wouldn't at least hint that it's a joke, especially seeing some of the reactions.
