Nets forward Kenneth Faried was charged with marijuana possession.

Now, his misdemeanor case is making its way through court in New York.

Michael Scotto of The Athletic:

Perhaps, Faried can beat the case. More likely, he’ll settle. If that settlement is for something other than marijuana use or possession, he won’t trigger the next step in the NBA’s marijuana program.

The first violation comes with a warning, the second with a $25,000 fine unannounced publicly and the third with a five-game suspension.
