    Arkansas suspends starting DE

    LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Arkansas defensive end Marcus Harrison is suspended indefinitely after being arrested late Friday night on a felony drug charge and several misdemeanors.

    A Fayetteville police report says an officer stopped Harrison, 23, just after 11 p.m. Friday night near his apartment. The officer reported a strong smell of marijuana coming from Harrison's car when he rolled his window down.

    The officer asked Harrison to step out of the car. The police report says Harrison consented to a search and told the officer he had "just a pill" in a pocket of his cargo shorts. The officer reported finding a small plastic bag containing one blue Ecstasy pill.

    The officer reported finding one partially smoked marijuana cigar under the front seat of the car and another unsmoked cigar. The police report shows both cigars tested positive for marijuana.

    I loved the "marijuana cigar."

    Hand rolled, I presume.

    How, exactly, does that constitute a felony? We live in a seriously fucked-up country if having a couple of blunts can land you more than a year in prison.

    We live in a seriously fucked up country.

    But it's probably the X carrying the felony weight, though it's Arkansas, so who really knows...

    Tonight's NORML meeting must've been a good one.

    Was he busted with glow sticks and pacifiers too?

    In every way, including the viciously stupid, the trailer for the "war" on terror.

    Actually, the "cigar" referenced in the thread/article is likely a store-bought cigar which was unpacked and then, repacked with grass.
    Sometimes the mixture will contain some of the actual cigar's tobacco, with the grass.
    The brand most often used for this concoction is "Black & Mild"
    I sold many of these multi-packs of cigars to athletes and non-athletes when I worked at a convenience store during college.

    Well, the young man wouldn't be facing any time in any correctional institution had he made better choices. Like, you know, not having drugs on his person and in his system. Allegedly, of course.

    And given that he was driving (speeding, too) and might have been impaired by the drugs, I find it difficult to muster any sympathy for him on any level.

    Hey, I'll have to try that.

    Oops, did I say that out loud?

    I'm a big believer (being I was involved as part of the USCG in the "War on Drugs") that continued drug prohibition is the reason for all of the violence on our streets and overcrowding in our prisons.


    The simple act of driving around with blunts out in the open and your car looking like Cheech and Chong with all the smoke smacks of sheer stupidity. What, do you think you're going to be able to pass even a cursory glance or sniff by a cop with your car reeking of whackey-tobackey smoke when you open the window? That guy is not exactly a mental giant, especially since he was speeding to boot!

    On another note, it seems like half of all the college football stories on the wire is where some player arrested or suspended, usually over something just plain stupid. I think this qualifies. If you're a doper and get a scholarship to play football and knew that continued use of it could jeopardize your career, wouldn't you stop? From someone who is going to spend the rest of their life paying off student loans, a free education is a pretty damned good value.
