Washington State RB cited for pot possession

Washington State made their way into the race for the coveted Fulmer Cup over the weekend.  James Montgomery, the Cougars' leading rusher in 2010, was cited for misdemeanor marijuana possession in Pullman, according to the Spokane Spokesman-Review.

Montgomery was the featured back in one of the less impressive rushing attacks in the Pac-10, totaling up 483 yards and 5 touchdowns in 11 games of action.  The fifth-year senior is currently petitioning the NCAA for medical hardship waiver that would grant Montgomery a sixth year of eligibility.  He suffered a brutal leg-injury in 2009 that made him miss most of the season, and almost ended his football career.  

If Montgomery is trying to win over anyone in the NCAA, he is not doing himself any favors by ending up in the newspapers for the wrong reasons.  However, his decision making could be doubted just for wanting a sixth year running behind the Cougars offensive line.  That's the football equivalent of doing a cannonball into quicksand.

This should not happen in Washington State. Anyone can get a medical marijuana card from carnival tent nurse practitioners. No excuses, if your going to smoke pot get a card! That just shows poor decision making.

I assume CBS will write 12 articles about this.  Or are they going to prove once again that they only do that to Iowa?
