As a teen, he admitted to dealing marijuana. He went to tOSU that is all.
alternate headline: man does job
he's from pahokee, gotta do what you gotta do to make ends meet.
Or you could get a real job.
The article I read said that his family had enough money to buy essentials like food. Santonio said he used the money to buy gifts for himself such as shoes. I think that it's great that he's bringing this up before the super bowl. Hopefully other youngsters "from Pahokee" can learn from him, now that he's in the super bowl instead of on the corner.
Any clue why pahokee is such a mess? It's not a big place.
Well, I guess I don't really know the hood, but why can't you get jobs in Pahokee?
Pahokee more aptly described as the hood's hood.
thats why football is so big there ...it's a way out.
When I lived in West Quad I knew a guy that bought/sold pot from Mario Manningham and Eugene Germany.
I have personally made a "transaction" with Manningham, lived with Savoy and sparked with Branch... anymore names I can drop? Oh ya as a freshman I saw Hart walking around naked in the bathroom.
You mean to tell me that high school and yes, college athletes, smoke, buy and sell a little wacky tobacky?
This never entered my wildest dreams. I thought they were wondrous little cherubs, laughing, frolicking and singing in a land of chocolate rivers and gumdrop smiles.
They still are wondrous little cherubs, laughing, frolicking and singing in a land of chocolate rivers and gumdrop smiles, but only after the acid they bought from Santonio Holmes kicks in.
The plural for cherub is not "cherubs" but rather "cherubim."
The more you know.
As I have never done drugs, never lied, never broken one law I have the right to judge all of you. SHAME ON YOU- you shall all burn in hell...........that is all
i grew up in ann arbor. i never thought of the people who sold me tree as bad people. but then again, half of them were my friends parents.
oh, and for your own sake goto mgoblue.com and count how many players are on the roster. then take the # and divide by half. now repeat that 3 more times. take that # and you have roughly the amount of kids on the squad who don't smoke.
could have been coke for all we know
i only respect other superfans
i sold pot. i went to UM. that is all.
You're no Michigan Man.
On the contrary, if you didn't sell weed I'd question if you're truly a Michigan Man.
i especially love the Hash Bash
In 2002-2003, if you lived in Markley and smoked bud, you likely bought it from me. Also, I was ripping you off. But really, it was your parents money anyway.
this comment implies that there were some people selling pot in ann arbor that WEREN'T ripping people off - i just kind of assumed we all were?
No - it simply implies that there were people buying weed who didn't know they were being ripped off. Which is still surprising, to tell you the truth.
However, I buy medical grade dank out here for less than what I sold solid middies for in Markley 6 years ago. Maybe it's the economy.
I can't wait to get my card for the medicinal shit in Michigan.
I'd be careful with that. First off, it goes on some public record when you register for that. It probably will never be used against you, but you never know. Also, it's still illegal on the federal level. People in CA have been busted by the DEA because although what they are doing is legit in the eyes of the state, it is still breaking a federal law.
I'm not going to tell you not to, but to think about it. You should do what I do, tell your friend to get a card and have him buy it for you.
I don't think you have to worry about getting busted by the DEA unless you're a grower or seller. Also, Obama said he would put an end to federal raids in states that have passed MM laws, but has yet to do so.
Well you likely won't get your home raided, but the centers themselves have been raided often, and everyone who is there (not just the employees) have been detained. It's kind of like downloading music for free - you'll likely never get caught, but there is a legitimate chance that you will.
Just curious, how much does three and a half grams run you out in Cali?
You used to sell middies for more than that? What a dick.
OK, it wasn't really middies, it was KB but not amazing. And I actually sold it for 60.
It's call supply and demand. I'll charge what my people will pay. I'm a fucking capitalist.
$60 is right on ... go local black market economy!
no yer an american. it our way of life. but damn man. 60? i could kush or skunk, white widow, purp haze, any of that shit for that
40 to 60 bucks!!
Who buys eighths anyway? As former distributors who are well aware of the rip-off factor, you guys should be the first to know that picking up an 1/8 or less is a bit foolish when a quad of the same would likely go for 100, etc. etc.
a quad? whats a quad? i head of a qoap quarter of a pound but no qoap is goin for hundred not of this shit. maybe a 100 an ounce but again, not this shit. more like mids or worse. shwag
im guessing a quad is a quarter, as in 2 eights
I like ceramic pots.
Quap = QP = Quarter Pound = PRICEY
Quad = 1/4 = Quarter of an Ounce = $100
I wouldn't be buying 8ths, I would be selling 8ths, that's really all college freshman want to buy at a time. Plus a lot of people don't want a ton of weed chilling around, or drop too much coin at a time. I would buy it in much larger quantities.
That said, in LA I usually buy an 8th at a time. Just easier.
you all piss on Nancy Regan
piss i say
Its marijuana, not a real drug.
Black people don't do coke. Not be racist but I went to a predominantly black school (same city as Gabe Watson) and we only ever had tree at my school. All the coke heads and such were the rich white kids from Birmingham that I knew. Coke is an expensive drug.
You forgot a few nuggets of idiocy:
- only blacks do crack
- all meth users are white and poor
EDIT: and I almost missed the implication that blacks don't do coke because they are too poor. Bravo, this is like a fucking hat trick.
EDIT 2: in case there is any doubt at all (you never know here), I am berating this guy for making said generalizations. Carry on.
This is quite over the top. I understand that you are making absurd generalizations to show your disdain for (and highlight the stupidity of) the previous posters ideas/choice of language. Throwing this after the post makes it seem as though you believe drug use is perfectly random across all cultures. Recent studies (although not perfect) would show this to be false. I don't know what is more detrimental, ignorance or its hyper-correction.
You can't construct an argument I never made then tear it down. That doesn't work very well.
I pointed out the stupidity of saying "blacks don't do coke." I then added some other common drug stereotypes that are equally ridiculous. I never said or even came close to implying that drug use is random. Drug use is highly correlated to lower socioeconomic status, and to the extent a certain culture/race/whatever is correlated to a lower SES it will then have a weak correlation to drug use.
You are wound too tight. This is a forum, not a courtroom.
I thought this was a courtroom? In any event, if you call me ignorant and make some shitty arguments I'm going to point out how stupid they are.
And I'm perfectly relaxed - no need for drugs.
a last wordsmith?
It means you must have the last word. If so, you can have it.
and now this post makes me look like I actually need the last word
Correct me if I'm mistaken, but is that anything like the 'last highlander'?
If this is so, then I'm feeling just grandiose enough to correct you: No, I am the last wordsmith.
marijuana is not a drug. it is a plant that grows naturally everywhere and has been since the dark ages. alcohol and cigarettes are more dangerous for you. the only thing that pot has killed is a bag of doritos and the all you can buffet
R.I.P. All You Can Eat Buffet, 1917-2009
Surely you will concede that a psychoactive drug can be extracted from marijuana under certain circumstances. Like, if you're smoking it.
I have extracted my share of THC from marijuana and think marijuana should be legal, but let's get real here. Hemlock and deadly nightshade are both plants that grow naturally, but that doesn't make them any less poisonous. Fermentation is a natural process, which doesn't make alcohol any less of a drug.
A major reason people claim that MJ is not a drug is because, unlike all other illegal substances generally listed as "drugs," marijuana is not classified as a narcotic. So, like a lot of other herbs and chemicals, it has an effect on the body, but not in the same way as other "drugs," i.e. cocaine, heroin, other opiates, etc.
it shouldnt be illegal because you get high off it. the first time you smoke a cigarette you get a nicotine buzz. the same with your first beer. what other nonsmokers dont know is that it is more useful that to just smoke it. imo it could save this planet.
hemp can be used to make clothing, paper products, and above all fuel. 1/3 acres of hemp if harvested, can equal up to 1 whole acre of trees. including maturing in for less time. trees mature in 10 years while hemp in 3 months.
You can make a pretty good case for marijuana being benign, but I don't think this argument is going to convince anyone who isn't already for legalization. It doesn't convince me, and I am already for legalization.
Thanks for putting words into my mouth jackass. I never said either, all I said was that the attitude at my school, which was predominantly black, was that coke was the rich white kids drug in Birmingham/Bloomfield area. Hell, black people at my school said those words verbatim. Coke is a rich persons drug like a poster said. Who are the rich kids in Oakland County? Oh yeah, the white kids in Bloomfield/Birmingham area. Who could afford to buy coke? Oh yeah, the same kids. All the people that I knew that did coke were white and rich. Get off your fucking moral high horse.
your life experience was sufficient to prove a categorical rule that blacks don't do coke. The use of your anecdote about the black guy saying this to bolster your credibility is just the icing on the cake.
And I don't think I'm going to come down - I kind of like it up here on my horse.
oops i meant to say crack. coming from white suburbia, i'm not good with drug terms. pot was big at my school too.
that they're black, it's more that their not rich. coke is a wealthy person's drug. regardless of race.
Michael Irvin and Doc Gooden endorse this post wholeheartedly.
trust me. black people do coke. believe me.
shit i bought my coke from a black guy. he was a manager at a waffle house.
I used to buy coke from a black guy. That part's cool. But the manager of a waffle house? If you buy coke from anybody, make sure they drive a mercedes or equivalent. Otherwise you're probably getting run.
i think pot is big at everybody's school
i mean, shit. jesus smoked yo.
herbs a gift from the earth. and whats from the earth is of the greatest worth. so before you knock it, try it first, you'll see its a blessing and its not a curse.
haha, NORML. This topic was tailor-made for you.
If you don't like my fire, then don't come around.
yes. it is a shame that i stumbled upon it late though
my mom says marijuana kills your motivation
I wonder if he also consumed alcohol as a minor?
Dealt drugs to their own citizens....so, yeah, I'm not gonna care that some kid from a poor hood sold some dime bags to help make ends meet.
If he does not do that, perhaps he cant get shoes and without shoes maybe he cant get that schollie that helped him out his neighborhood.
Its amazing how pious we can be when we dont walk a mile in people's shoes.....or if we're talking about a guy who went to osu.
Didn't Ty Law get popped for having a car full of X....iirc he had to squirm out of a distrubtion charge....he went to UM. Enough said.
i think we've been pretty good about not giving a fuck about holmes' down home dealings.
*forwards entire thread to the DEA*
Please don't... I'm applying to the DEA as soon as I get my MBA.
*CCs Michigan's business school*
dealt drugs in baltimore.
If Jesus had turned barley into weed instead of water into wine we would all be smoking communion right now.
who the hell cares, most people on this board probably smoke marijuana. Ann Arbor = tree city, who are we to judge?
wolverine here... new to the site but say this weed board... we got some fuckin dank out here. got dat sugar shack, white widow, cherry kush... damn all kinds of yummy shit.
I can't believe Brian hasn't posted yet...
We are not immune to marijuana usage up here in Mt. Pleasant.
