If I remember correct, didn't Hector Pothier get arrested for possession? He was still a Olineman for the Eskimos at the time, but it didn't derail his career. So why should a higher standard be held for Carter? Because he is a Rider? ::)
Bernie Ruoff  when with Winnipeg 79 was kicked off the team but he resurfaced in
Hamilton a year later .

Dan Kepley also caused havoc back then too.

I would have to think that it is better that he got caught now as opposed to getting caught after they legalize it. The penalties are day and night difference, with the new laws everything starts at 14 years of jail time.

Personally I'm thinking we're gonna need a lot more jail cells in this country... in a hurry.

It may be a minor issue in our views, I doubt the courts see it that way. reefer madness is still alive and doing very well.
LOL  what?  I think you got some bad intel....pot is a schedule 2 drug.

Schedule 1 drug minimum sentences are 1, 2 and 3 years depending on exactly the situation and amount.  

The MAXIMUM sentence is 14 years....and that applies to illegal production and trafficking essentially by the truckload (more than 200 plants will be minimum 1 year, max 14, more than 500 plants will be 2 and 14)

"trafficking" requires possession of >3kg to be eligible for jail time.

FYI...even importing/exporting jail time requires it to be with intent to traffic (so will need to be >3Kg)


None of that is going to dramatically change.  Not in 4 months!  Really what is going to change is that having pot on you in public will be treated like open liquor is  now
I stand corrected then - thanks

I was gonna mention it was a schedule 1... I would have been wrong on that too thanks again I didn't know that.

I did think that coming in on an international flight would bring on a harder sentence... I do not know if it was an international flight or not.

Just saying that some of the new penalties seem rather harsh and non-sensible.

I guess I'm one to always expect the worse.

I think the fact that Canadian Border Security were the ones that found it and called the cops says it was an international flight. You only deal with them if coming from another country.

He will never see the color of an NFL jersey again.
Great news for the Riders. 

That said, a large percentage of CFL players smoke weed, this charge is laughable & equivalence of a parking ticket.

How many of them like to transport it across the border?

Ticats had a long snapper a few years back who decided it would be a good idea to carry massive quantities of banned PEDs across the border.  Thing is, he was driving from one part of Canada to another part of Canada, but chose a route that took him through the US anyway.  Because crossing borders with banned substances is exciting, I guess.

This is marijuana, most cops laugh this off.   Like the legal dude said on the radio yesterday, worst case scenario for Carter is some community service.

  No country that I know of cares what you take out of the country, that's why the security when you are leaving is mainly about weapons on board a plane. The country you land in cares about what you are bringing in and checks you. This means that Carter was probably coming into Canada which makes him even more stupid because we have all kinds of pot here and probably better that the American stuff. STUPID....Canada doesn't care what you bring to the States unless you come out and tell them you are carrying pot. This is asinine either way.

Duron is going to get hit with a salty fine at the very least. Airport Security does not like you creating a security situation. That is what happens when the K9 on duty gets busy because a not so swift football player forgot an old baggy of pot somewhere in his luggage. 

Again this is just stupid, infantile behavior by Duron. Maybe he does on purpose for the attention?
Everything I write is just an opinion formed from various sources. Some more reliable than others, it is expressed as a composite of facts, innuendos, emotions, personal experiences and complete fabulation into a gumbo for entertainment purposes alone.

Two things:
Our current PM admitted to smoking pot while being an MP. I guess the House of Commons was too stressful. He didn't even get his hand slapped.

Second, I guess Carter's chance at playing in the new XFL is out the window, as he could have a criminal record, even a very minor one if it goes through.

;)

  Please don't equate smoking pot with the ineptitude of Justin. He would be the same flitting butterfly regardless. In fact he would probably get something done if he smoked some good sativa. ;D ;D

  I have several friends with the pot card for illness and I learned that there are different strains for different results. Indica for sleeping and sativa for inspiration. ;)

However facts may come forward that help Carter. Cheers
Or he can say I thought the laws changed last week. now really

Unless there is a plea bargain to a fine and some community service only - any good lawyer will move to defer this till after July 1st then move to have it dismissed. Pot isn't my cup of tea ... a good glass of whiskey is. So long as a person uses responsibly I am not going to be hyproctrical and condemn a man for not using my drug of choice. 

I do agree that this makes it very unlikely he gets another shot at the NFL and the Riders will be happy to have him. That being said it was still a dumb move knowing its not legal yet - he deserves a "your an idiot fine - some community service with kids ".

That ruling your asking for will not apply anytime some. Importing/exporting still illegal.
Dream on, Dumb stupid move. Should get 1 year CFL suspension. NFL will not want him
Just stupid!!!!!!!!!
