Dashcam video of Nick Marshall’s pot citation released

Nick Marshall Citation

Another day, another development in the Nick Marshall “situation.”

Auburn’s starting quarterback was cited — not arrested — late last week for possession of marijuana.  Although head coach Gus Malzahn stated his disappointment in the player’s actions, he declined to say at the SEC Media Days Monday if Marshall would be subject to any type of punishment, up to and including a suspension for the 2014 season opener against Arkansas (unlikely).

Tuesday, a Columbus, Ga.,  television stations obtained dashcam footage of the traffic stop that led to the citation and posted it online.  In the video that’s nearly three minutes in length, you see the initial stop, Marshall speaking to police officers, Marshall being handcuffed, and finally Marshall getting back into his vehicle with a piece of paper in his hands.

What it didn’t catch is Marshall being “teary-eyed” or “very regretful” — the latter because there is no audio — as the officer who initiated his stop stated in the police report.

    Well, surprise. Weed is a depressant. Makes me want to cry for him. Not really.

    Most interesting thing about this video is that they cited him and let him resume driving. So clearly they didn’t consider his driving impaired–even though the reason they gave for searching him was that they smelled weed.

    Weed has anything but depressing effects on the human mind….. Lol

    Nor is it classed as a depressant.

    No kidding? Not a depressant? Maybe not in the clinical since, experts. I am sure you are brilliant people whose life and Careers were made better with dope and booze. Pot makes most people stupid, then they do stupid stuff, then they get caught with and and bam, depressed. I don’t want a pot head running my financial affairs, surgery, driving my company vehicles etc. say what you want, it makes you depressed sooner or later. Oh yeah so does alcohol. Bottom, line if you screw with this stuff and it cost you your job or scholarship, your bad. Or your future job. Nothing makes us want to hire you more than drug and alcohol offenses. If that don’t depress you, fire up by all means. Drive drunk. See you at subway. These young men need to understand what the big picture and ramifications are.

    It might not have depressing effects but it is classified as a downer/depressant, just like alcohol. You probably don’t think alcohol is a depressant bc you drink and go to bars etc m but it is. Smoke a blunt and tell me how awake you are after your fritos and “Half baked” giggles wear off

    Just out of pure curiosity, what/who is your favorite band/artist?

    Actually, marijuana can be a depressant or a stimulant depending on the strain.


    ducksk: your views are a bit antiquated—while yes, there are issues with marijuana addiction (and alcohol addiction, coffee addiction, tv addiction, video game addiction, peanut butter addiction)) it does not mean that it calls for a full prohibition. Some would argue that the NCAA rules need to be eased as states begin to legalize, and the NFL would appear to agree as there are already moves to shift and downgrade marijuana offenses.

    And if you are equating success in life and business with not smoking–does that mean you believe the 40.1% of Americans who have smoked weed are unsuccessful or can’t handle their affairs? What about the states/countries that have legalized marijuana–are they incapable of handling their affairs?

    By the way, based on current stats in the U.S.–you probably already employ someone who smokes the Devil’s weed.

    And the word is sense, not since (an easy typing mistake if you’re high 😉

    Jimmy to answer your question yes. With 1 in 6 Americans on food stamps and over 50 million on disability. People cannot handle there affairs. Over 50% of the population pay zero in taxes. Keep smoking the weed and become a ward if the state.

  12. jimmy53 says: Jul 16, 2014 10:24 AM


    That’s an amazing leap and inference that you are making with no connection. You are saying that those 1 in 6 and 50 million all smoke pot?? That’s like saying 500,00 people eat at McDonalds everyday in the U.S.–they must be the cause of poverty here.

    Most informed people would tell you that when pointing out poverty statistics you should first look at those born into poverty and how they correlate to those who spend their adulthood in poverty.

    Others would tell you that 40% of this country’s income goes to less than 1% of the country–that shows a widening gap in class structure–not an issue with marijuana.

    But if you still want to spout your baseless inferences why don’t you try comparing the poverty stats of the states that have legalized marijuana with those that have not—based on your theories they should be lower than that of the rest of the country.

    This is just logic though—don’t let it get in the way of good ol’ antiquated idealism….

  13. jimmy53 says: Jul 16, 2014 10:27 AM

    oh, and are you saying that the 50 million with disabilities can’t handle their affairs because they smoke weed? Or because they have disabilities? How do those two connect?

  14. Deb says: Jul 16, 2014 12:38 PM

    @bigbenh8tr …

    As I’ve posted before, I neither drink nor smoke pot, so my comments aren’t based on the after-effects of visits to bars. And as jimmy53 said, marijuana has both stimulant and depressant effects, but it is not classed as a depressant. Personal opinion–yours, mine, or anyone else’s–has nothing to do with drug classification.

    jimmy53 has already answered a lot of the silliness posted here. But it’s worth mentioning that most of those “wards of the state” psly2124 is ranting about are solid citizens receiving the social security and Medicare they worked their butts off to pay into the system. That little fact is omitted when dingalings quote the overinflated percentage of people receiving government checks. Only 4.1 percent of the U.S. population is on welfare.

    I doubt many of the surviving World War II generation were big pot-smokers. But pot wouldn’t have stopped or accelerated the aging process. They’d still require social security and Medicare. The money being paid out to them is theirs. And they deserve it. One day it will be our turn. And I doubt the dingalings will be whining about being wards of the state when they’re drawing their checks.

    Well, I’m a 1% er and started with nothing. Favorite artist? Of corse, role model curt cobain.

    And applicants are screened via fingernail test. Employees are well paid and get 1 mulligan. You may disagree, that’s ok. We have great people. Do not need you.

    Bringing up war vets I totally agree. My dad fought in WWII. Before the war he had been working for years as a machinist. During the war he almost lost one of his arms at the elbow due to taking a bullet while on a tour in Asia. When he got back he was awarded disability benefits through the military because he lost partial function in the hand of that arm and shards of metal enbedded in his side and under arm. Medical marijuanna was not even thought of in those days….
