Drugs charges against WHITNEY HOUSTON have been dropped by a judge in HAWAII.

The singer was stopped over a year ago at Keahole-Kone Airport in Hawaii and security guards found 15.2 grammes of marijuana.

According to reports on [url=]www.cdnow.com, the misdemeanour charges were dropped after a drug abuse expert filed a report stating that Houston did not require treatment for substance abuse.

The case was dismissed on Monday (March 5).
