One of the side effects of long tem marijuana use is the loss of short-term memory. I bring that up because it might help explain the plight of Baylor wide receiver Willie Jefferson. You see, Jefferson was busted last week, along with teammate Josh Gordon, with a small bag of the sticky in his car by the police. Which you would think would cause Jefferson to think to himself that maybe he should lay off the weed for a bit, so he doesn't get in any more trouble with the law or his football team.
Oh, but that darn short-term memory loss! Jefferson was arrested again on Thursday when he was once again busted by the police with pot on him. He was freed on $1,500 bond, and he was also freed from the team.
Coach Art Briles said in a school statement that he was releasing Jefferson from the team for that old standby, "violating unspecified team rules." Which, as we know, is getting busted with pot twice in two weeks.
Jefferson had only one catch for Baylor this season, a 43-yard touchdown reception. No word on whether he was high when he made it, but I think it's safe to assume he got high after that game.
