Ooof...that's...yeah. It would be one thing if you are driving, get pulled over and they find it on you.

It takes another level of stupidity to have it on your luggage through an airport though.

I hope that this "sticky" situation "blows" over in time, and that it's not a "chronic" concern.

Smoking marijuana is not a big deal, but why bring sand to the beach? You're getting on a plane, you can find weed wherever you land!

The sad part is, he probably has gotten away with it so many times previously. TSA misses stuff all the time.

Hopefully it's not a big deal, and yeah it should be legalized and all that but you can't be putting your career at risk over some weed man. Smh.

I'm sure he did. Checked bags get X-rayed, but aren't typically opened.

His problem was likely in using the fake Arizona iced tea can. Who uses their suitcase space for a non-alcoholic drink?

Then again, maybe they had sniffer dogs, in which case he'd be boned either way.

why does this guy keep doing things that's detrimental to his career? could've been golden boy in L.A had it not been the snitching incident. And now got busted for taking drugs. i mean even guys like durant smoke weed. but he needs to put his act together and stop all the nonsense and jeopardize his career. this explains why he lacks focus in games sometimes. maybe he smoked some before the game. i'm a dlo fan, but really disappointed in him cuz he needs to appreciate his chance to play in the NBA more.

Was he on his way to Cali? The dispensaries are ridiculous out there, why even risk it on a plane?

This should take out at least 5M per year from his new deal .... but seriously he doesn't have any friends in his hometown that can get him some bud? or maybe louisville has trash bud.

I don't care that he smokes weed.

However, trying to take it through an airport is pretty goddamn stupid, even for him.

I dunno man...weed down south is kinda trash compared to up here based on my experience. But I haven't smoked weed in seven years so I dunno.

I'd rather get high off some down south garbage weed instead of trying to get caught by the TSA smuggling some high quality goods through Gate C at LaGuardia :crazy:

Ganja is a good thing it helps with pain and people I know that have PTSD say it helps them. Here in Jersey you need a medical card to smoke it legally I'm not up on the rules in NY. I'd think if they caught you on the street with it in NY cops wouldn't care but since the dumb ass brought it on a plane the rules are different.
Who's going to sacrifice for their teammates here? Defense? Unselfishness?
