Every year it’s like clockwork. The BCS Championship Game is played. A week later, the arrests begin. Ex-Alabama star Dre Kirkpatrick was the first to be popped for possession of marijuana. Now it’s a Florida Gator.
Sophomore defensive tackle Leon Orr faces misdemeanor marijuana possession charge after less than 20 grams were found in his on-campus dorm room by UF police. He’s also being charged with possession of drug paraphernalia thanks to a pipe and rolling papers that were also found in the room.
For those thinking that Will Muschamp would be able to clean up the Gators’ marijuana culture, that’s a no-go. Orr is the eighth Florida player arrested under Muschamp and six of those arrests have been pot-related.
Smoking marijuana in college isn’t as rare as it used to be and from the 60′s on it hasn’t been that rare to begin with. But if Florida were to strengthen its drug policy, it might lead one or two Gators to occasionally put down their pipes.
