Ahmad Black cited for marijuana possession

AP

Buccaneers safety Ahmad Black has found his way into the rotation of players seeing time in the Tampa secondary this season, but he’s also found his way into the bad graces of law enforcement.

Stephen Holder of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Black was cited for marijuana possession by Hillsborough County police last week. According to court records, Black was charged with possessing less than 20 grams of marijuana. That’s a first-degree misdemeanor and Black, who was not arrested, is scheduled to be arraigned in early December.

Black was selected in the fifth round of the 2011 draft and spent most of his rookie season on the Tampa practice squad. He played in four games, making five tackles, and has moved into a larger role this season. Black’s played in all eight Bucs games and started once, recording two interceptions and 10 tackles.

Black could be punished under the league’s personal conduct policy as the result of the citation.

    OK, so, if the ballot measure passes in Colorado, would Bronco players be fined or suspended for testing positive for marijuana?

    Why wouldn’t this player be concerned about the NFL random drug testing policy?

    Its not the off season.

    Another Urban Meyer kid in trouble with the law? What a surprise!

    Let’s see – pompous, pious and corrupt – how did he end up at UFlorida instead of UMiami? He looks like a better fit for the ‘Canes.

    This is such an archaic law that will eventually pass as time passes.

    Let me get this straight – a grown man is walking around with some weed, and you lay blame on his college football coach.

    Chances are that if he’s still smoking weed as an adult, he was smoking it long before he ever met UM.
