Mike Vick Would Be Jealous

Two way-under-the-radar NBA arrests in recent weeks have shown exactly why it's so important to hire quality Weed Carriers.

Peep game...

Prosecutors decided not to file marijuana possession charges against Indiana Pacers forward Shawne Williams on Thursday following his arrest this week, but the team suspended him for three games for poor judgment.

The Marion County prosecutor's office said police found marijuana in the vehicle Williams was driving, but felt it couldn't prove the drugs belonged to him.

"Nobody technically had possession, and a passenger claimed it as his," spokesman Matthew Symons of the prosecutor's office said. "It would be difficult to prove beyond a reasonable doubt he (Williams) had the marijuana."

Williams was formally charged Thursday with a misdemeanor count of driving without ever having received a license.
Meanwhile, in Houston...
Houston Rockets player Justin Reed was cleared of misdemeanor marijuana charges Tuesday because others submitted affidavits claiming the drugs, his attorney said.

Reed was arrested on Sept. 4 and charged with possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, which carries a fine from $100 to $250. He posted a $500 bond and was released later that night.

Reed's attorney, Jackson lawyer Dale Danks Jr., told The Associated Press that the Hinds County Sheriff's Department had dismissed the charges Tuesday.

"There were two other individuals arrested in addition to Justin. Both of them admitted the marijuana was theirs and not Justin's, which makes sense because Justin has been drug tested at least 16 times by the NBA and during the four years he was at Ole Miss," Danks said. "He's not a drug user."

Hinds County Sheriff Malcolm McMillin was not immediately available Tuesday for comment. He told The Clarion-Ledger newspaper that the charge was dismissed because "there were affidavits signed by the others arrested that it was their dope."
In the grand scheme of the NBA, these two guys are hardly significant players. In fact, they're both practically expendable 15th men. Hell, I had trouble just finding in-game photos of these twin bamas.

However, when it comes to hiring Weed Carriers, these dudes are All-Stars.

If guys like this, with marginal NBA futures can exercise enough common sense to convince their buddies to take the fall for their drug charges, what does it say about the relative intelligence of Mike Vick, formerly known as the NFL's most marketable player? Vick, as you are well aware, was ratted out by his cousin and homeboys, whom he'd given financing to for their illegal dogfighting scheme.

Thanks to their loose lips, Vick's boys set the Weed Carrying profession back years, but it's good to know there are still loyal soldiers dedicated to the art of coppin' the charge. These guys are truly a credit to their race.
