Montel Williams was temporarily held at a German airport because of his medical marijuana prescription Friday morning.
“This morning while traveling through the Frankfurt Airport, Montel was briefly held in German customs while they verified the validity of one of his MS prescriptions,” according to a statement shared on the television personality’s Facebook page. “Once it was verified, he was promptly released.
The 60-year-old was going through customs when an agent found less than a gram of marijuana that had been left in his suitcase inadvertently, according to his representative Jon Franks. Williams explained the pot was used to treat multiple sclerosis, a claim he was able to back up after his team back in the US sent over proof of his prescription, and he was released within less than an hour.
