Jamal Atofau LB, Andre Barrington LB Washington State

Redshirt freshman LB Andre Barrington, who is currently under academic suspension, and redshirt freshman S Jamal Atofau (above) have found themselves up in smoke after police found weed in the basement of their apartment. By weed, thats a definite understatement, because the cops found 38 growing marijuana plants while serving a completely unrelated search warrant. They also found manufacturing equipment, paraphernalia, and arrested 2 other roommates who were not on the football team. The 4 were charged with violation of the uniform controlled substance act, and the charges will become more severe once they dry and weigh the drugs.

Washington's laws for marijuana is that less than 40G is a misdemeanor, while more than 40G is a felony for possession, and its a minimum $250-$500 and a mandatory 24 hour jail sentence for a misdemeanor (can be a maximum of 90 days. A felony possession is $10,000 and a maximum of 5 years in jail. Sale/cultivation less than 40G is a $10,000 fine (same as over 40G) and 0 - 6 months jail for less than 40G, and a maximum of 5 years for over 40 G. 40 grams is 1.41 ounces of marijuana. Washington, however, is one of the states that has legalized medical marijuana. However, growing 38 plants in your basement is not medical.

While searching for how many grams a single plant could hold, it apparently is really dependent on a lot of factors, however it seems like a single plant itself, on average, contains one to 10 ounces. This could get bad for the 2 young Wazzu footballers.
