Two Cowboys hit with drug misdemeanors

Oklahoma State doesn't play again until January 2nd when it will face Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl. Which means that Oklahoma State players have a lot of free time on their hands, and we all know what happens when college kids have a bunch of extra time on their hands. So it's not surprising to find out that Oklahoma State's Christian Littlehead and Jonathan Rush find themselves in a bit of trouble with the law.
Oklahoma State defensive lineman Christian Littlehead and offensive linemen Jonathan Rush were each charged Monday with one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

The charges, both misdemeanors, stem from an incident last Thursday, when OSU police found two homemade smoking devices containing burnt residue in Rush's and Littlehead's residence at Sitlington Hall, according to the initial filing at the Payne County Courthouse.
Both players could face a year in jail or $1,000 fine, possibly both, but probably neither.

As for how this will affect each player's status for the Fiesta Bowl, the school is aware of the incident and is handling its own internal investigation. When it comes to Rush, whether suspended or not, he won't be playing in the Fiesta Bowl as he suffered a knee injury against Texas A&M in September that ended his season.

As for Littlehead, that's where things get a bit interesting. Littlehead has started a couple of games this season, but has played on the defensive line in all 12 games for Oklahoma State, with 16 tackles and a sack. His current court date is set for December 29th, which poses a problem for him seeing as how Oklahoma State is scheduled to fly to Arizona on December 27th. Which means that if he's not suspended for the game and wants to make the trip, he's going to have to get his court date changed as well.

Come on man! Why is this news...18-22 year old kids do what 18-22 year old kids do! This is not newsworthy and only serves to sully the reputation of these young men before they even get out into the world and establish a reputation... Come on man! You can tell it is lull time as the news is scraping the bottom of the barrell...

You supposedly "enlightened" posters are using this incident to stir up debate concerning drug laws. THIS STORY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE LEGALITY OF DRUGS, These two young men did not smoke dope because they were making a statement concening the legality of drugs...or did I miss something??? They wanted to get "high" and in doing so broke the law, which is the real story. Their actions are a reflection of  their character and level of maturity.

If they were not OSU Football Players this story is a non-story. But as an athlete on SCHOLARSHIP at Ok St University they have an obligation to not just themselves but to their teammates...an obligation they abdicated. THAT IS THE STORY...not whether or not smoking dope should be legalized. The fact the two arrested were not Weedo and Blackmon make it far less of a story, but a story none-the-less. A story  of two selfish punks (Honey Badger/Simon, you listening) whose actions have detracted from the accomplishments of what, up to this point, has been a great season for OSU. That is why I choose to criticze these two young men...for their act of selfishness...not to make a statemnt concerning drug legalization.

How did the cops FIND these things?  Did they have a search warrant?

Who gave them permission to be inside their residence?

Actually I think what he is referring to is the waste of money that is spent on "victimless" crimes. 

You buy a sack of week, go home and get stoned, there are no victims. 

You rob a bank or shoplift, someone is being victimized.

So for those of you who believe in that remember this, that beer in your hand leads to being an alcoholic.


Yeah, the things these people fail to recognize is that beer is the real gateway drug if there is anything to fit the bill.   Most people who smoke pot or have tried harder drugs have tried alcohol first.

 the FACTS are that an extremely high percentage of drug addicts begin with pot.
Either that or becomming President of the United States.

Don't forget about your real argument that they told you marijuana was bad in Sunday School. Jesus hates drugs

It is fairly clear that there are several sheep on this board.  The whole marijuana is a gateway drug myth was debunked many years ago.  I understand that most alcoholics drank milk as a kid.  BAN MILK.  See how dumb that is.  Stating that it is illegal is just as silly.  Those that use that argument must also believe that the government is correct in everything they do.  Seriously?  Marijuana is illegal because the tobacco companies and alcohol distributors would lose money is marijuana were legal, so they fight it tooth and nail.
