Whitney May Not Be In The Clear On Pot Charge

Hawaii prosecutors say singer broke deal by failing to turn in substance-abuse assessment.

Whitney Houston's not out of legal trouble yet. Prosecutors in Hawaii are asking a judge to cancel an agreement that would have resulted in the dismissal of pot charges against the pop singer, according to the Associated Press.

Houston is charged with promoting a detrimental drug in the third degree, stemming from an incident on January 11, 2000, when a security guard at Keahole-Kona International Airport confiscated one of Houston's bags and allegedly found a half-ounce of marijuana (see "Whitney Houston Charged In Pot Bust").

Prosecutors in Hawaii County report that Houston failed to deliver a substance-abuse assessment due before a hearing Thursday. Houston reportedly did not attend the hearing to determine whether she complied with the agreement, which requires that she stay drug-free.

The agreement came after Houston pleaded no contest via her lawyers on November 2. In addition to the drug-free condition, the agreement required Houston to pay a $1,000 fine and a $25 jury fee, and make a $3,000 donation to the Big Island Wave Riders Against Drugs organization.
