Backstage at shows, things happen, including bands smoking weed. Think what you want about it but it's part of the deal. Apparently though, that doesn't fly when Linkin Park is around.
Rome Ramirez of Sublime With Rome tweeted the following out after their appearance in Tuscon, Arizona, at the KFMA Day show this weekend.
Linkin Park called the cops on us and said that they were allergic to pot. cops came and took all our weed while we on stage. Bitch shit— Rome (@RomeMusica) May 25, 2014
Then the third shot at Linkin Park.

Wow! Nobody from the Linkin Park camp has commented on the situation as of now, but if Rome hasn't removed the tweets yet, I doubt that this issue is going to just be let go.
UPDATE: Mike Shinoda denied via Twitter that Linkin Park had anything to do with the police coming out and taking Sublime with Rome's weed.
LP didn't "call the cops" on @RomeMusica smoking pot. Not sure where the rumor came from. Definitely not my style, bummer it happened.— Mike Shinoda (@mikeshinoda) May 27, 2014
If someone was "representing the band" to the cops in the venue about weed smoke, they were out of line.— Mike Shinoda (@mikeshinoda) May 27, 2014
Hmmm... Two sides to every tale. I still feel like there's something missing in this story.
UPDATE: Chester is mad!
FYI.. I did not call the cops on Sublime. Rome should check his facts before running his mouth!!— Chester Bennington (@ChesterBe) May 27, 2014
UPDATE: Now Mike Shinoda is just screwing with Rome. Well played.
