NBA star D’Angelo Russell is catching heat after an unexpected run-in with New York authorities at an airport. Reports claim the All-Star received a citation after having cannabis discovered in his checked luggage.
Nets point guard D’Angelo Russell was cited for marijuana possession at New York’s LaGuardia Airport on Thursday, according to USA Today’s A.J. Perez. Russell was flying from LaGuardia to Louisville International Airport, but “was questioned by police after a routine search flagged what at first glance appeared to be a can of Arizona Iced Tea in a checked bag,” per Perez. Authorities searched the tea can and found the marijuana that led to Russell’s citation, which is a violation under New York law and carries a fine of $100 or less. (Sports Illustrated)
USA Today, which broke the story, reported about the iced tea can. The incident occurred at about 8 p.m. on Wednesday night at Terminal C. Even if he pleads guilty in Queens criminal court, Russell may not face punishment from the NBA since there’s no suspension until a third violation of its marijuana policy. (NY Daily News)

The team lost in five games to the Philadelphia 76ers. (Yahoo! Sports)
Hollywood actor Spike Jonze and actor Jesse Williams are helping to break down the negative taboos still surrounding marijuana. The high-profile entertainers have linked for a must-watch MedMen commercial.
Jones’ two-minute commercial is the first-ever for MedMen and stars Williams as they present the United States’ history with marijuana.
It opens on what appears to be a natural history museum diorama that depicts founding father George Washington (played by Williams) at his hemp farm, examining a specimen from his latest crop–the point being that back then, growing weed was about as eyebrow-raising as growing your own wheat or corn. The film then takes a darker turn, illustrating what the V.O. says was America’s “80 years of unjust prohibition, which hasn’t made us any safer”–with scenes of individuals getting frisked by police and harsh punishments in court.
