Suspended Wake duo arrested on weed charges

Wake Forest Duke football AP

Early Saturday afternoon, Wake Forest announced that it had indefinitely suspended another two players for unspecified violations of team rules.

A day later, we’ve gotten some of the specifics.

According to the Winston-Salem Journal, safety Duran Lowe (pictured) and offensive tackle Devin Bolling were arrested Oct. 9 by the Winston-Salem Police Department on charges related to (gasp!) marijuana.  The former was charged with possession with intent to sell and distribute marijuana, the latter with possession of marijuana.

No details of what led to the arrests were immediately available.

Both Moore and Bolling started a game apiece this season, with each listed as the No. 2 player at their respective positions on the most recent depth chart.

The duo’s suspension brings to eight the number of Demon Deacons who have been suspended this month.  In early October, Wake announced that six players had been suspended for one game for violating unspecified team rules.

It was subsequently reported that each of those players had failed a random drug test.  Sheesh, who does Wake think it is, Oregon East?

    Maybe you believe that it’s immoral to use a certain drug, but if you also wish such acts to become/remain criminalized you also have to accept responsibility for the dire consequences of such un-thought-through folly.

    Under our present prohibitionist-regime, these certain plants/concoctions/drugs are sold only by criminals and terrorists; the huge black-market profits are used to bribe and threaten law enforcement officials and commit atrocities against innocent civilians; the availability and usage rates tend to go up, not down; prisons have become filled to capacity with easily replaced users, vendors and smugglers —this list is endless!

    Prohibition guarantees to criminals and terrorists the power to threaten communities, and even whole states. Ending drug prohibition won’t be the complete answer to all our drug problems, just as the end of alcohol prohibition didn’t end all the problems associated with alcohol. But it will surely ameliorate the crime and violence on our streets, lessen the huge burden on our judicial system, and shrink the the immense incentives for corruption in public office.

    Prohibition is the most destructive, dysfunctional, dishonest and racist social policy in America since Slavery. Prohibition is a holocaust in slow motion. We MUST end it NOW!

    Tell me, why would anyone want to get high. There is no way someone high or drunk can be responsible to drive, take care of children, working. Somewhere a life is being smoked or drunked out.

    Each player is majoring in Pharmacudicals with a double minor in Shipping and Purchasing. Or put another way, they’re job creators running a small business. Lol, damn hippies!
