Who would have ever thought that the biggest druggie in LA radio would be on the conservative KFI, and their most out-spoken anti-drug proponent?

Indeed Rush Limbaugh was caught again for drugs that didn't have his name on the bottle and instead of hillbilly heroin this time the Florida resident was busted for pecker pills.

"While going through routine Customs inspection of luggage at Palm Beach International Airport upon his return from an international trip, Rush Limbaugh was detained by customs agents after they noticed a non-narcotic prescription drug, which had been prescribed by Mr. Limbaugh's treating physician but labeled as being issued to the physician rather than Mr. Limbaugh." Limbaugh's attorney said in a statement. "After a brief interview, Mr. Limbaugh was permitted to continue on his journey."

Brief? Reports we've read from Florida say that the 55-year old comedian was detained for about three hours.
