Jay Jackson arrested for marijuana

There’s a lot to unpack here.

According to the NHK story, Jackson was arrested in the predawn hours of Friday in a parking lot in Hiroshima’s Minami Ward. Operating on an anonymous tip, the Hiroshima police on Tuesday searched his apartment in Chiba, just east of Tokyo on Tuesday, when they found bottles containing liquid cannabis.

Considering the situation, one of the following seems likely to have happened:

Jackson was breaking the law by possessing illegal substances, and someone in Hiroshima who wanted to shut him up about the child custody case ratted him out.
Jackson willingly purchased the illegal substances from someone who then ratted him out in order to shut him up abut the child custody case.
Jackson unwillingly received the illegal substances from someone who ratted him out in order to shut him up abut the child custody case.
My guess is that money was paid in order for someone to set Jackson up so the police would arrest him.

Interestingly, I'm reading a Paul McCartney bio and I just finished the part where he got busted!

I think it was Mal Evans who told a story where him and McCartney were traveling in like Monte Carlo or someplace on their way to India and they had a huge restaurant tab and no money to pay. And they were gonna get arrested or something. Imagine succeeding in your wildest dreams and your life is filled with: creating music, parties, press, women, etc. and you still have to remember these mundane things like your wallet.

Well, just hide in a cello case and get flown out of a small private airport in Nowhere, Japan and his problems will be solved

Re 2: Evans told another story about how Paul flew from the UK to France to film a scene for "Magical Mystery Tour", and called him from there. "How can you be in France?" Evans asked. "I have your passport!" Apparently, Paul charmed the customs officials enough that they let him fly to France without a passport. (No wonder the guy thought he could get away with anything!)
