Two Texas A&M football players were arrested on different charges over the weekend in the parking lot of a Bryan apartment complex, according to jail records.

Isaiah Golden, 19, was taken into custody on a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge and released from jail Sunday after posting $2,000 bail. Darian Claiborne, who was arrested in December on similar possession charges, was taken to jail and charged with a noise violation, which is a Class C misdemeanor, according to jail records.

    So you don't think the 3,800 - 5,200 from illegal drugs would have any that were marijuana?!?! Hmm

    The ONLY thing dangerous about marijuana are the cops who shoot people for having it:

    Number of American deaths per year that result directly or primarily from the following selected causes nationwide, according to World Almanacs, Life Insurance Actuarial (death) Rates, and the last 20 years of U.S. Surgeon Generals' reports.

    TOBACCO - 340,000 to 450,000

    ALCOHOL  (Not including 50% of all highway deaths and 65% of all murders) - 150,000+

    ASPIRIN  (Including deliberate overdose) - 180 to 1,000+

    CAFFEINE  (From stress, ulcers, and triggering irregular heartbeats, etc.) - 1,000 to 10,000
    "LEGAL" DRUG OVERDOSE  (Deliberate or accidental) from legal, prescribed or patent medicines and/or mixing with alcohol - e.g. Valium/alcohol - 14,000 to 27,000
    ILLICIT DRUG OVERDOSE - (Deliberate or accidental) from all illegal drugs - 3,800 to 5,200
    MARIJUANA - 0 

    (**Marijuana users also have the same or LOWER incidence of murders and highway deaths and accidents than the general NON-marijuana using population as a whole.** Cancer Study, UCLA; U.S. Funded ($6 million), First & Second Jamaican Studies, 1968 to 1974; Costa Rican Studies, 1980 to 1982; et al. LOWEST TOXICITY 100% of the studies done at dozens of American universities and research facilities show pot toxicity does not exist. Medical history does not record anyone dying from an overdose of marijuana (UCLA, Harvard, Temple, etc.)

    Accordingly a 1993 study done by the U.S. Department of Transportation came to the same conclusion as the above concerning marijuana and driving safety:

    “Marijuana, administered in a dose of 100 µg THC per kg of whole body weight...did not significantly change mean driving performance as measured...” - U.S Department of Transportation: Marijuana and Actual Driving Performance DOT HS 808 078

    The fact is people who use marijuana reflexes are not affected in a negative way and they become more conscious of safety, sometimes refusing to even drive.

    Marijuana is a plant with a safety record second to none.

    Anyone who would like to dispute these FACTS, point to a credible death that involves marijuana and nothing but marijuana, or hold your tongue.

    the greatest plant in the universe is almost free, LET FREEDOM RING!!!13

    "any doctor against marijuana is a doctor of death" - cali secret 420.

    from 0 states to half the country, from low 20% approval to almost 70%, cali runs this planet by 2 decades, time to tie marijuana to the 2014, and 2016 elections, out with the old, in with the new

    20 years behind us southern states, sad and scary....nobody denies freedoms like the south, nobody…the top ten incarcerators on the planet are southern states...even if marijuana reforms did pass the republiCANTS in charge would deny you all your freedoms, centuries of matter though, we never planned on getting your backwards brethren from day one, half the country already but not one southern state, lol...

    love and freedom forever

    Look at the bright side. Along with the "wrecking crew" they now have the "toking crew."

    The most amusing sentence in the article is

    "The officer approached the passenger side of the car and immediately recognized the smell of marijuana, the report said."

    Maybe because the officer smokes as much pot as the football players.

    "They do know right from wrong."

    You should not equate "legal from illegal" with "right from wrong".

    "Claiborne began to protest as the officer placed Golden under arrest, saying "this was going to ruin the defendant's college football career," according to the report."

    And we thougth these idiots didn't know any better. They do know right from wrong. This was just about being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I take back everything I ever said about athletes being dumb.

    Coach Sumlin promotes elements of culture, music, style and behavior that works well for recruiting...we also see it in the behavior of the althletes who follow him...all of what is going on is due to Sumlin, his leadership, his persona, his way of doing things....he didn't clean it up last is happening again...but, then let's use the JF argument...they are young, they are growing up...this is no different than society at large...why are football players held to a "hire" standard.

    Yep, need to obey the man. That is the law...a good way to fill private prisons, make money for all aspects of the legal are worried about the slippery slope...then why was alcohol made legal again...opps, reason was black market, all the chasing of created can use the slippery slope to cocaine argument if you wish, but we will be smarter than that...but, you are right, it is the law...stupid law, but the, needs to be obeyed, at least until tickets holders get their monies worth and get to come to games at KF and sit in their posh seats...that is what these young men are here for, our entertainment....and they have to live by the man's rules. Or pay the that is a slippery slope.

    Coach Sumlin needs to get serious and clean up the football program or much worse will happen.

    Well, here's another black eye for the football team. Until marijuana is legal in Texas, abide by the law to avoid being in the headlines for the wrong reason.

    Key word - legalize. That means that right now it's illegal. It makes no difference who "...smokes this stuff...". Until it becomes legal in this state, EVERYONE has to comply with the law. No moralizing required - just abide by the law or go somewhere where it's legal. This is a slippery slope. Legalize marijuana and then there will be an argument to legalize cocaine. After all, the fictional Sherlock Holmes used cocaine and frequented opium dens, so why not make it legal? A stretch - - yes - - but you get the idea. Here's another idea - - just abide by the law until it's changed. Unless you don't care about laws. Then you can run for President.

    Folks, this is only smoking weed...who cares...many, many, many people in society smoke this the university, in our community. Stop the moralizing, get over it. Legalize the sale and will be smoother...Chill.

    Hey, think about it for a minute. They are not recruiting these guys because they are S M R T. And they sure aren't concerned with them getting an education while they are here. It's all about the bottom line and how many "wins" you get. Until that changes, you're probably looking at least 50% of the team that falls into this category. They just haven't been caught.
