    Kansas Marijuana Bust

    Just came across this story, recent marijuana bust netted a guy from Overland Park, KS who supplied members of 2010-2011 team with marijuana. The guy was also recently noted behind the bench during game(s), no names or additional charges filed and no comment from the University of Kansas.

    Strange for things to happen around Kansas basketball. Usually such a pristine program.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    Re: Kansas Marijuana Bust

    CBS Sports just put out their story on the situation: Report: Former and possible current Kansas players tied to man in widespread pot ring - CBSSports.com

    And for the record, I'm not saying this is a big deal or saying that Kansas runs' a dirty program, etc. Just newsworthy that it involved (potentially) the basketball program and its' players; they are college students after all.

    The CBS blurb says "eh, bball players smoke pot... Nbd." I feel like if it were not a blue blood program, the article would have a different tone.

    Nothing new here. Blowing grass is as common in Lawrence as having a beer is in Ames. I can guarantee you that it was that way in the late 60s in Lawrence and obviously still is. You must admit that is very convenient to have your dealer seated directly behind the bench.

    Come on Kansas. If you want to keep up with Mizzourah, pot is just not going to cut it. They had a cocaine dealer on the plane.

    But seriously. While as a program I don't consider this a big problem, the players should see some sort of suspension from this. The thing with basketball is that the preseason is so full of cupcakes that off season suspensions don't really affect anything. The real season doesn't start until January.

    If the population treats the law like a joke, and the law is enforced like a joke, then the law is a joke.

    Athletes largely get off scot free with marijuana because everyone recognizes the inherent BS of the policy. Few really think it's worth sacrificing any stature of an athletic program to crack down on what amounts to harmless recreation that has no effects on athletic ability. At this point it'd feel like suspending a player for speeding 7 miles over the speed limit.

    Players should be held accountable for their performance in the classroom and on the court/field/whatever. As long as those are in order, an athletic program should turn their head with weed--as they already do--as long as they can until the NCAA threatens them.
