Report: Hawks center Miles Plumlee charged with marijuana possession
If convicted, Plumlee will have violated the NBA’s marijuana program. Neither first (warning) nor second ($25,000 fine) violations are typically announced, so it’s unclear where Plumlee is on the progression. A third violation triggers a five-game suspension.
The bigger issue: Why is the NBA penalizing players for something that ranges from a petty offense to completely legal?
