Everybody makes mistakes from time to time. This can be especially common among younger adults due to the lack of life experience. Many people make these types of mistakes while they are still college students. It turns out that two college student athletes in Georgia may have recently found themselves in this type of situation, and they are now facing marijuana charges.
The two football players are college freshmen and were arrested in early November. The two college athletes will now be facing misdemeanor charges for marijuana possession. The university is obligated to suspend each of the players for one game, in accordance with university policy. One of the suspects is a linebacker and has played in seven games, while the other suspect is a defensive lineman with prior appearances in two games for the team.
