Igor Olshansky Arrested on Pot Charges a Day After Being Released from Dolphins

Categories: Sports
Former Miami Dolphins defensive end Igor Olshansky was having a bad week. A calf injury forced him to miss the Thanksgiving Day game against the Cowboys, and the team rewarded him by releasing him on Wednesday. 

All the dude wanted to do was get a little high after a tough work week, but the Broward Sheriff's Office wouldn't let him. He was arrested for the grievous crime of rolling a joint in his own damn kitchen. 

"The Broward Sheriff's Office, participating in a multi-agency drug operation, found Olshansky, 29, rolling a marijuana cigarette at his kitchen table at 3:20 p.m. at his home at Point of Americas at 2200 S. Ocean Lane, a sheriff's arrest report said," reports WPTV.

Way to go tackling the real crime issues Broward Sheriff's Office. Surely society will deteriorate if grown men are allowed to roll a little joint in their kitchen. 

He was charged with one count of possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana. He was freed this morning on $100 bound. 

Olshanksy, a Ukrainian, has played most of his career with the San Diego Chargers and the Dallas Cowboys. He was signed by the Dolphins only in September. 

Olshanksy is the third Dolphin, past or present, to run into legal trouble this week. Brandon Marshall was handcuffed briefly this week for ditching out on cab fair, while former Dolphins David Boston was arrested this week as well for allegedly beating a woman.

An appeal to all Prohibitionists:

Most of us are aware by now that individuals who use illegal drugs are going to get high, 'no matter what.' So why do you not prefer they acquire them in stores that check IDs and pay taxes? Gifting the market in narcotics to ruthless criminals, foreign terrorists and corrupt law enforcement officials is seriously compromising our future. If you remotely believe that people will one day quit using any of these 'at present' illegal drugs, then you are exhibiting a degree of naivety parallel only with those poor deluded wretches who voluntarily drank the poisoned Kool-Aid in Jonestown. 

Even if you cannot stand the thought of people using drugs, there is absolutely nothing you, or any government, can do to stop them. We have spent 40 years and over a trillion dollars on this dangerous farce. Practically everybody is now aware that Prohibition will not suddenly and miraculously start showing different results. So why do you wish to continue with a policy that has proven itself  to be a poison in the veins of our once so proud & free nation? Do you actually think you may have something to lose If we were to start basing drug policy on science & logic instead of ignorance, hate and lies? 

Maybe you're a police officer, a prison guard or a local politician. Possibly you're scared of losing employment, overtime-pay, the many kick-backs and those regular fat bribes. But what good will any of that do you once our society has followed Mexico over the dystopian abyss of dismembered bodies, vats of acid and marauding thugs carrying gold-plated AK-47s with leopard-skinned gunstocks? 

Kindly allow us to forgo the next level of your sycophantic prohibition-engendered mayhem. 

Prohibition Prevents Regulation : Legalize, Regulate and Tax!


Completely idiotic.  They invade his house for less than an ounce of weed?  The cops should be the ones being arrested.

It's a Fing plant people.  It's faaaaaaaaaar less damaging than alcohol and extremely better for you than most prescription drugs.  Wake up America.

Another example of drug policy gone wrong. Current laws against pot only benefit the lazy cops  and legal system who keeps them employed and getting fatter and bigger every day!
