Reuben Foster arrested for possession of marijuana

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was arrested Friday in Alabama on a possession of marijuana charge, according to records from the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office.

He was released from jail after posting $2,500 bond. The second-degree marijuana possession charge is considered a Class-A misdemeanor in Alabama.

Foster was selected 31st overall by the 49ers in the 2017 NFL Draft. He was considered a top target but slid down the draft board because of character issues. He was sent home from the draft combine for arguing with a hospital worker during his physical.

In April, he was notified by the NFL that his urine sample obtained during the NFL Scouting Combine was reported as dilute and was treated like a positive test. Foster disclosed the test results to NFL.com because, he said, "This is something that's going to get out. I don't make excuses."

In his first season with the 49ers, he started 10 games and recorded 72 tackles.

Doesn't matter where it's locally legal. Its still not approved by the NFL or federal government. This guy likely had more issues than just smoking pot. Read the article, so not sure how or why police made contact with him. John Lynch might not be the "Savior" as he's been anointed by so many. Character issues are just that..ISSUES! I hope he turns into a cancer for the 49ers! Although as a person, I hope he gets himself together and is a great family man.

Nothing personal against the kid, but he should know 2 things:

1. Weed is illegal in Alabama
2. His contract with the NFL prohibits him using it

He has to make better decisions and take responsibility for his actions.

On a lighter note... I hope he gets a LONG suspension! Anything the hurts the whiners is a good thing.

The NBA will change it before the NFL does. Lotta the same people outraged by the flag protests against legalized weed.

“Law and order”.

I would lean towards no for the NFL. They get huge breaks from the Federal Government, until pot changes on the federal level it's highly unlikely the NFL changes soon. Money makes a lot of decisions, especially when it comes to the NFL.

Jerry Jones would have been a preacher if the NFL didn't get breaks and exemptions from the government. It been common knowledge for a long time.


The breaks, to my knowledge.. are related to the tax break for stadiums construction....
Which totaled about a billion dollars over fifteen years.

How much did the NFL take in in revenue last year?
