Chris Clarke charged with Marijuana Possession

Looks like Chris Clarke is also caught up in the Ty Outlaw marijuana controversy. Clarke and Outlaw are roommates and Clarke has now also been charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession with the same offense date as Outlaw.

Roanoke Times Article

EDIT: Contrary to the RT article, the court records show Clarke's offense date as 03/20 and Outlaw's as 03/21.

You got that reversed friend. Ty was caught up in the Clarke marijuana controversy

Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no lies

You may be right on that. Just checked the court records and Outlaw's offense date is the day after Clarke's...

Also the fact that outlaw was out of town and Clarke was not

Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no lies

Yep, not arguing with you at all. That whole situation is strange to me. I was just attributed it as the "Ty Outlaw" situation as he was the first one to be charged and to have it come out in public.

"the court records show Clarke's offense date as 03/20"

More like...4/20, amiright?

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Wondering if maybe CC is not on the lease. So they charge Ty because he is only name on lease and it took a while for the charges to catch up to CC.

If that's how the commonwealth attorney for Montgomery county operates I would be shocked they get many convictions.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Well rumor was no one was there when they executed the search. Why would it be that charges against CC are just now showing up?

I really hope BPD isn't busting down doors simply to chase a pot possession charge.

They are. Probably.

From experience they absolutely do. They turned my apartment upside down for a minuscule amount. We are talking bed turned over and everything in our cabinets on our floors.

They are way too bored.

They removed the vent covers for the AC, the plumbing outlet covers, and pulled up the artificial turf on the patio putt-putt course on my former apartment-mates apartment, but left a bud sitting on the nightstand and several hundred hits of acid inside it. They seized a "High Times" magazine and pictures of pot plants, but left a 36' revolver top TM sitting between the couch and the coffee table. They left a warrant on the stairs, as the raid was during a break.

That's intense. I just smoked a little pot.

Well rumor was no one was there answered the door when they executed the search.

FTFY.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

After all they had to throw the stuff in Ty's room first.

The way I read it, the cops were there, smelled the pot but were unable to contact the residents, like you said, no one answered the door, then came back with a search warrant. Now, if they were, in fact, there, I would have expected someone to be worried enough to use the time to rid themselves of the green plant material and pills mentioned, but who knows?

Reel men fish on Wednesdays

I thought the same thing when the first news came out. If CC was in the apt when the cops came knocking the first time, he should have been moving his stash to another location. So either Outlaw was out of town and didn't get the chance to relocate/ditch his stash or CC moved his stuff into Outlaw's room to cover his own ass. You are right though, the close call should have prompted CC to get rid of all the stuff by either consumption or relocation.

Whatever. It was one bad year.

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about

And really, isn't this just another reason that Mr. Crapper invented the flush toilet?

From my past experiences, I'm shocked that they can find their cars in the parking lot.

Leonard. Duh.

Looks like the basketball off-season is going about as well as the football off-season went last season...sheesh!

Explains the smoke around Buzz.

That was a blunt response.

I can't believe we are making puns about such a serious crime. We are better than this. We should all take the HIGH road from here on out.

We should weed out these comments.

Take this leg as a Toakin' of my appreciation

This sub-thread has given me the munchies.

Are you the pot or the kettle?

Doesn't anyone use a bong anymore? Why do younger kids (my own included) like to smoke these huge blunts that, in addition to being not very cost-effective, produce the unmistakable stench that permeates everything and is nearly impossible to hide? Hell, we got high all the time in Miles, but used a bong or one-hitter, held the hit in, and blew out virtually nothing.

Kids are stupid, but also incredibly intelligent. Most of my friends have oil pens that look like any other vape and don't smell that strong

As I am doing my best to ionize the stench out of my son's car, who mainly uses a vape-type thing.

Ha ha. I think...

Screw the bong. Edibles are where it's at.

Many of us old-timers like the taste & feel of a nice bud. Not to mention the immediacy and the ability to control the effect.

It's nice to live in a state where it's legal...

Back in the dorms we had a coke bottle....cut the bottom off and put a dryer sheet over it. Exhaled through that and you have nice Gain scent with a tinge of smokiness

Back in the dorms, we smoked (with a bong) in the last dorm on the floor, where the wind came in under the door and out the fourth floor window. We also made sure to invite the RA's girlfriend (was a coed group, so okay that way), which really helped a couple of times. It was a different age, where at least 3 of the dorm rooms on the floor had plants in the window, and if a beverage was in a plastic cup it was whatever you said it was.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

Different times indeed. We lived directly across the hall from an RA. We were bummed when we moved in as we thought it was gonna blow having her right there. I maybe saw her twice all year. She was a recluse. We played beer pong in our suite and one time the RA from the other end of the hall came down because the recluse RA called her down to ask us to stop. That was our big slap on the wrist for the entire year.

I may or may not be an expert in jerry-rigged dorm room ventilation systems. Pritchard was good times man.

"For those who have passed, for those to come, reach for excellence."

I'ma give you a leg but truth is that didn't hide the scent at all. By time I was in school for 2 months I could smell the dryer sheets and the tinge of something else and I could probably identify the brand of dryer sheets you were using.

Not that I am discouraging the young bloods from trying this, but I want to let them know it's obvious anyway.

Because this is the East Coast, fam. Rep

I vote to change the title of this thread to "It is all smoke around Chris Clarke"

I second this motion

I enjoy everyone play on "smoke" with this thread. For me file this under who cares. Outdated law that no matter how it reads feels like a set-up.

This is only a crime technically. Nobody cares. Get drunk no problem - have an edible and suddenly it's a crime. The Blacksburg police need to find something better to do with their time.

#sauces Didn't want to make a new thread but Chris Clarke is signing with Texas Tech. Said all the "baggage" was blown out of proportion to make an example.

Edit: It broke on twitter right after I talked to the coach.

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

I'm not sure I buy his explanation. It's not hard for me to believe that another mid major basketball program would take a shot on him even with the baggage being exactly what was rumored.

If you make it to the National Championship game and are from a Power 5 conference how are you a mid major?

Maybe you and I have a different definition of mid-major, but I would define it as any program that is competitive but is short of being a blue chip like Kentucky or Duke. And I would definitely say that one year of making it to the championship game is not enough in itself to be a blue chip program. This is splitting hairs anyways, because the real point I'm making is I'm not surprised that Clarke got a second chance even if he may have gotten on the bad side of some people around here.

Also for the people downvoting my last comment, why? Even being generous I don't see how my comment is trolling or breaking community guidelines.

You have different definitions of mid-majors because yours is factually incorrect. The term "Mid-major" applies to a team based solely on the conference they belong to, referring to mid-tier Division 1 conferences, a fairly large group residing behind the P5 and the Big East, and possibly the AAC depending on who you talk to. Calling Texas Tech, a team in the Big 12, a mid-major is laughable at best.

Okay, I didn't know that and I stand corrected. I still feel like it's a little pedantic to get hung up on my choice of wording there, considering it's not that central to the point I was making. Any thoughts on whether this transfer was surprising to you?

Calling Texas Tech, a team in the Big 12, a mid-major is laughable at best.

Or just an honest misunderstanding of the definition

I understand your point, but I think mid-major is a pretty well defined thing in college basketball and has been for some time. Referring to Texas Tech as a mid major is just incorrect.

" Mid-major is a term used in American NCAA Division I college sports, especially men's basketball, to refer to athletic conferences that are not among the so-called "Power Five conferences"

I think if you would have used non-blue chip in your original post it would have been more easily understood.

For what it's worth I did not downvote you and will leg your comment as a way to offset.

It's going to take a while to weed out these comments. I think you're both smoking. I mean the pot is calling the kettle black. Seems like puffery. Why would light up this controversy? Oh well, I'll talk to you at 4:20. Man that is dope!

Gotcha, I stand corrected then. That explains the confusion.

Welp, I hope he gets to exact revenge on uva there
