Simpson, Collins questioned about pot delivery

As cited in a report by Californiawatch.org, Bengals offensive lineman Anthony Collins and receiver Jerome Simpson were detained and questioned at Simpson’s home Tuesday after another person at the house signed for a delivery package that contained a 2.5 pound bag of high-grade marijuana from California.

No arrests were made, according to the report, but authorities called it a controlled delivery to a house that was set up as a distribution network. Inside the northern Kentucky home, police allegedly found six more pounds of marijuana, empty parcels, scales and packaging material.

More from the story:

In recent years, drug agents have stepped up efforts to intercept California-grown pot being shipped out of state by drug-trafficking organizations seeking higher profits.

Michelle Gregory, spokeswoman for the California Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement, said the operation was initiated by a special marijuana task force after agents discovered a suspicious package at a commercial sorting facility in Sacramento.

The agents then alerted law enforcement in Kentucky, who intercepted the package and monitored its delivery. Barb Schempf, spokeswoman for the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, confirmed that airport police participated in the controlled delivery but declined further comment, citing the ongoing investigation.


Said Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan: “There’s nothing of substance in the development of rumors that we’re aware of. There’s nothing to hang a hat on at this point.”

Federal prosecutors as well as Kentucky state and local law enforcement are continuing to investigate. 

According to the report, Simpson wrote on his Twitter account that his supposed arrest was "100% rumor." That account apparently has been deleted since.

For those saying it's ok because "it grows naturally on the earth" let me ask you: would you like to chew/smoke the nightshade plant?  How about hemlock?  They both "grow naturally on the earth."  And they're both fatal poisons!
The absolute dumbest thing I have EVER heard. This is about rights. If it grows naturally on this earth we have a RIGHT to it, it is a natural resource. Just like we have the right NOT to smoke something that grows on this earth. No one's putting a gun to your head saying you have to smoke weed. The real question here is why do you NEED marijuana when you make millions of dollars and play a kids game? Take a vacation to Hawaii for gosh sakes. If I had that money, I wouldn't smoke weed, but hey, such is the consequential divide of consumerism.

This is not a question whether pot should be legal. It is about a large amount of pot that was about to be distributed. You would think these clowns could keep their noses clean for the dew years that they play in the NFL! Seriously who has the time to run a pot distribution racket during the NFL season. Where is the commish on this?? Sounds kind of like this is against the player conduct policy to me!! Should be automatic 6 game suspension!

I'm all for legalization but you have to be a total idiot to have pounds shipped to your home.

Ridiculous. Just legalize it. The amount of people that use as the generations get older just keep rising. 30-55year olds use pot at a greater or equal percentage than 30 and under crowd do. We are missing an ass load of money on taxation and are going broke trying to incarcerate pot heads and dealers. Wonder why state governments are broke? Here is a large piece of the puzzle. Prison budgets have rose at a 4 fold rate higher than state education, infrastructure, and pension/state worker cost since the "War on Drugs" began with Nixon. So every time a state education cost increases by 1%, inprisonment costs rise 4%. I watched a show on the history channel last night called "The Stoned Ages". You know how much pot gets seized every year for the last 10 years on average by the DEA? 2.5million pounds (may have been tons). That is just what gets confiscated. The US has about 5% of the worlds population but buys 67% of the illegal drugs globally. For all you conservative capitalistic tards out there that live my the free market system, there couldn't be a better example of one of your favorite phrases "The market has spoken!".

If i were a professional athlete i would forego any illegal doings, so not to jeopardize my career, i think it is very foolish. The justice system really should put them on jail sentence or something so no one else get influ enced on doing such things.

Cigarettes will kill someone as I'm typing --- never heard of any marijuana related deaths. "But it's illegal"..... Yeh, and so is driving 67 in a 65.
