TMZ Finds Pot On Kevin Durant, But Was It Legal?
While the controversy surrounding marijuana will continue to swirl there is one thing that we can all agree on. While there are currently 23 states that have legalized some form of the plant, Oklahoma is not one of them. Luckily for Kevin Durant he was not found with marijuana in Oklahoma. He was found with it in California.
The National Basketball Association has a very strict stance on marijuana and other recreational drugs. They are very much against the use of these substances. And while there are several teams firmly planted in cities that allow recreational marijuana, the NBA will not make adjustments for this until the federal government changes the legal classification.
Kevin Durant was in LA over the weekend. On Friday evening he was out wit his entourage, which included several security guards. A contributor to TMZ happened to be in the area and was talking up Mr. Durant. As his vehicle approached and the door was opened a container fell from the car. The container had the look of a container used for the dispensing of medical marijuana. If you would be interested in seeing a video of the incident, you can see the TMZ video here.
One of the security guard for KD was quickly trying to contain the fallen container. Try as he might he was unable to hide the container from the lens of the cameras. He was heard saying, “Come on, man. Don’t do that. Don’t do that.” Essentially asking the amateur photographer to have pity on the multi-millionaire. He did not.
While the pictures are clear and the circumstantial evidence is there, the actual substance in the container has not been identified. It is also important to keep in mind that Kevin Durant is no choirboy when it comes to the perception of him and marijuana. In January of 2014 a picture was posted on his twitter account that showed him smoking from a Hookah pipe.
He claimed his account was hacked. Do you think KD has a medical marijuana prescription that he is trying to keep under wraps?
