DURANT, OK -- Suspended SOSU quarterback Justin Pitrucha was in the courtroom Thursday morning and was sentenced following drug charges.

Just weeks before the Savage Storm takes the field for their first game of the season, their former first string quarterback was sentenced to eleven months in the Bryan County Jail for misdemeanor possession of marijuana. However, that jail time was suspended, meaning Pitrucha will only be put on probation. Pitrucha and four others were arrested when officers broke up a party at the 1300 block of North 2nd street in Durant on April 22, 2008.

    So what!!! if the kid can throw the damn ball and put it in the end zone then who gives a crap. It wasn't heroin or crack. Maybe the coach should have been tougher and laid down the law to scare these kids..... in the words of the houston fans in bad news bears.... "LET THEM PLAY" "LET THEM PLAY" "LET THEM PLAY" The kid can ball on the Gridiron and the Diamond.

    I myself like to smoke pot but haven't for a couple of years now because of my career. I do believe that my job is more important than getting high. But there is a documentary that is called 'American Drug War: The Last White Hope that i think everyone in these comments should watch, smokers and non-smokers. I just saw it for the 1st time the other day on Encore or some other movie channel, but i thought it was a very interesting and thought provoking film. If you don't get the movie channels; rent it. And you'll see how much the Government makes off the so called drug war and also how much the government has a part on getting the drugs into the U.S.

    Okay, so cops, ballplayers, politicians, wealthy people's children, and celebritie are immune to jail time for drugs who does that leave ??the list is dwindling . But prison population in increasing...watch out poor people, you dont stand a chance.

    I have to say after reading the comments, I have to put my 2 cents in... I have smoked pot in my younger years as I'm sure alot of have, but prolly wont admit. I choose to quit after having my first child, my choice, I don't want my kids to smoke it (things are alot different now) they could a hold of something bad these days! I'm not a bad person, nor was I then! But yes it was/is against the Law and I would have had to pay the piper if I had gotten caught! I guess what I'm trying to say is IF you smoke it than that is your choice, but be prepared to pay if you get caught. And if you don't well good I'm glad. But it doesn't make anyone a lessor person because they do, just because you don't! Personal use to each there own, just don't sell it to our youth! That is a different story.

    Biffco and Tommy C., I guess the other 98% of the people commenting on this site are just brainwashed and crazy, and you two know everything. No one is trying to be mean to you, they just know what getting caught with marijuana can cost you. Is your "toke" on the weekends worth possibly loosing your job, home, family, or freedom?I don't see how getting high could be worth it. If you get caught with marijuana, it IS against the law, and you will be charged with a crime. If you get drug tested at work,and you have Marijuana in your system, you will get fired. I feel sorry for anyone who cuts down the D.A.R.E. programs and other programs that are trying to keep our youth out of trouble and Drug Free. I've never heard of a program coming around to our schools saying "PLEASE HAVE A TOKE ON THE WEEKENDS,IT'LL MAKE YOU A BETTER PERSON". I don't think the millions of people who are for these programs are wrong and you two jokers are right. Sorry, I stand up for the Drug Free Programs!

    TommyC. Cut the folks on this board a little slack. You have to remember that people like you and me upset long held beliefs by most of them. They have been absolutely convinced (through government propaganda programs such as D.A.R.E. and commercials by the Partnership For Drug Free America (a lobbying arm of the adult beverage industry BTW)) that anyone who has ever smoked pot is a loser burnout who will never amount to anything, is a drain on our society, and a danger to our children. They simply cannot conceive of a productive, family-oriented, tax-paying pot smoker. The idea that a pot smoker is not automatically a bad person worthy of derision and arrest causes the mental equivalent of vapor lock in most of these folks and they react with anger and fear that manifests itself in name-calling and belittling. Present your ideas and post reactions. But don't lower yourself to their level. Most people fear change and we rock their narrow worldview.
