Rocker Scott Weiland is impressing lawmakers in Los Angeles so much with his new-found sobriety, they're set to dismiss the drug charges against him.

The Velvet Revolver frontman has been in and out of court for the past two years after back-to-back charges for drug possession and drink driving in 2003.

Now clean and sober, Weiland was told in court on Monday (04APR05) that he has only three more drug tests between now and July (05) and, if he passes them, his probation will be terminated.

Weiland told US TV news show CELEBRITY JUSTICE, "I feel really good. It has been a long road. I can't really recognise my life today from the way my life was almost two years ago."
