You Got a Joint? It’d Be a Lot Cooler if You Did

LincecumMitchIn one of the least surprising misdemeanors of all time, 2008 Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum was pulled over for speeding just over the Oregon border in Washington. His 2006 Mercedes was clocked going 74 in a 60 zone,
which frankly is a ridiculous reason to be pulled over, and when the police officer approached the window the smell of weed came out.
Lincecum, after being asked by the officer handed over a pipe and about 3.3 grams of weed, in one bud. Under Washington law any amount of weed under 40 grams is considered for personal use.
“It’s not really out of the ordinary. It happens every day,” Washington State Patrolman Steve Schatzel said of the amount of weed Lincecum had with him. “It was about the size of a thumb, the whole thumb.”

All told, Lincecum could face a $622 fine for the misdemeanor possession, paraphernalia and the speeding ticket. Despite making a mere $650,000, this shouldn’t put Tim in the poor-house.

Ricky Williams Wants to Get High

Hmm, this would be a lot better if I was holding a joint...

This would be a lot more interesting if I was holding a joint...

Dolphins running back and weed afficianado Ricky Williams, who has tested positive for weed 4 times in the NFL’s substance program, as well as taking an entire season off so he could go smoke on the beaches of Asia told reporters that over the bye week he was tempted to blaze it down. Surprise!

Blaming the extra free time off, Williams said, ” [The temptation is] greater because, like, Thursday, coach told us we had Friday off, so automatically your mind, which is so constrained since training camp began — every day is a grind, it’s a grind, it’s a grind — and then Coach says `you’re free.’ And the mind says, `I’m free, what can I do?'” Clearly you roll up a joint made out of the New York Times and spark that shit!

But no, the once awesomely dreadlocked Williams conquered his temptation and resisted, by MEDITATING. EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. “‘I’ve done a lot of work at understanding myself a little bit more,” Williams said. “So I recognize [the urge] was just a result of the feeling of being free, and I was just trying to maximize it. And I realize that I really enjoy meditating and when I can go home and sit in my room and meditate, I can get the same feeling.” Wait, is that true? Get high and not pay or smoke? Hmmm… maybe Ricky is onto something… Continue reading ‘Ricky Williams Wants to Get High’

This Guy Loves Only One Thing More than America

“Hey man, wanna go to the Yankees game against the Padres with me?”

“Definitely! Hey you know what will make us totally awesome and show everyone how much we care about baseball?”

“Bring an American flag to aimlessly hold when they do ‘God Bless America’!”

“You read my mind! Lemme just change into my lucky pot leaf shirt and I’ll be good to go.”

“I love weed!”

“Where are we going again?”

Of course, this isn’t the first time weed and sports have overlapped…

The Wright Stuff is Dank

Call me old-fashioned, but if you’re an NFL defensive back, you shouldn’t be able to be caught by the police in a foot chase. Reserve backup Kenny Wright of the Cleveland Browns ended up being charged with unlawful restraint, evading arrest and possession of marijuana after causing a disturbance in a parking lot.

Now, I can understand the resisting arrest charge, I mean, you run away from the cops and that’s an easy charge, but based on that picture, I simply refuse to believe that this man had anything to do with marijuana. I mean, look at him, he’s clearly just a little tired is all. It doesn’t look at all like he smoked an ounce of hydro to his face while wearing a gas mask. This is clearly the face of a man who is NOT blazed. I would stake my entire legal career on it.

I’d suggest that opposing receivers would get on him about this next season, but, considering his stats last year, and all 6 tackles he made for the season, plus the fact that the Houston police were able to catch him on foot, he might never have that chance.
