Seems only A.Guido and myself understand what actually transpired. He was not "arrested"

METAIRIE, La. -- New Orleans Saints defensive tackle David Onyemata was issued a misdemeanor summons for marijuana possession last week, according to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office.

According to the JPSO, Onyemata's apartment in River Ridge, Louisiana, was searched after a narcotics agent received a reliable tip that a quantity of marijuana products was going to be there. Onyemata was found in possession of marijuana, THC oil, edibles and hemp powder. However, the amount was below the threshold for a more serious offense, and there was no indication that the items were for anything other than personal use.


TAKE NOTE OF THIS PART OF THE STATEMENT "However, the amount was below the threshold for a more serious offense, and there was no indication that the items were for anything other than personal use."

Hopefully the judge throws this out or levy a small fine to 80 grams.

Roger Goddell is the guy I'm more worried about. He'll find a way to sit him down for a few games.

May not happen in time to prevent an Onyemata suspension, if this was his second offense...

Re: David Onyemata arrested for possession of marijuana

I’ve been in Cuba a week and come back to this crap still on the first page.
We get screwed out of a SB and threads about it only last two weeks. A player gets popped for a little pot and it’s a front page post for a month.

If we just legalize pot and put a sin tax on it then we could pay off the national debt. Also, back on topic, Onyamata wouldn't be in trouble...….

Godhell is waiting to see if we find a replacement at DT. If not the he'll get the maximum penalty so Godhell can show that he won't put up with pot smokers......from the New Orleans Saints.

Shame that a drug with 0 recorded overdose deaths is a schedule 1 narcotic, similar to meth and heroin..

Politics aside... DT was already a big need for us, this doesnít change that.
Pot should've been legalized years ago. But even if it were legalized I am sure NFL owners would still have their horrible rules for it.

Beat up on women and hurt your wife? Ah, it happens. 3 game suspension.

Smoke pot? Year ban!

I'm an old enough fan to remember guys like Chuck Muncie, George Rodgers - some of the most talented RBs in the game, but looked liked goofballs cause now we know they were high on gameday...

Don't condone, agree with recreational use of cannabis; but, as a Conservative-Libertarian, but these athletes are adults making informed choices, and be responsible for their actions...

It's my belief that if you're paying for entertainment from a legit competition, those participants shouldn't have anything in their system in season; especially when marketing young kids as the NFL has done...

But I will say what irks me most is the NFL penalty system as it is now and the value system it reflects - and action speaks louder than words and right now - domestic abuse and it's coverup (e.g. Ravens) is okay...

It's not that my way is the right way, I just make the right way my way...
