Excuse you! I didn't do that in college.
I'm not judging him for smoking a plant but this was not a joint it was a pound. That may not be a felony in Cali but it's most definitely a felony in Missouri. Felonies f**k up your life. It's the circumstances he's gotten himself involved in that reflect very poor judgement. This is his 2nd offense in 2 years. He's clearly involved in some way in a drug dealing environment. I'm not saying he's a drug dealer but he's involved with drug dealers/criminals.
He's 20 and already getting busted for a pound of pot. What happens when all those drug dealer friends want him to shell out that rookie contract money for 50 pounds? Or perhaps they get him involved with something harder. It's just not a good path to go down unless you have nothing to lose and even then drug dealing is dumb.
The charges haven't been dropped because they were never filed. The police are still gathering evidence and building a case. The fact of the matter is if the other 2 individuals in the car don't claim that pound it's his. Even if it really isn't his the pot was in his vehicle. That's my whole point. The pot may not be his but he allowed it to be in his car. No way in hell I would let someone put a pound of illegals drugs in my vehicle. Why? Self-preservation; an instinct the two passengers are probably aware of.
Hopefully nothing happens because a pound of pot is not worth all the sick TDs he could be catching in the NFL.
