Former Louisville basketball player Chane Behanan is in the news for the wrong reasons yet again after being cited for marijuana possession early Wednesday morning, according to the Louisville Metro Police.
Behanan, who was kicked off the team on Dec. 30 following multiple suspensions, admitted in February that marijuana use was the reason behind his dismissal.
After leaving Louisville, Behanan spent time in Houston working with former NBA player and coach John Lucas, who runs a drug and alcohol treatment program for athletes and coaches. He then committed to spend his final season of eligibility at Colorado State, where he will be eligible to play during the second semester of the 2014-15 season.
No details have emerged as far as how much marijuana Behanan was in possession of and whether or not he was intoxicated.
Behanan posted the following on Twitter.

Chane's a charismatic kid who has always caught some extra slack because of his ability to say the right thing, but it's time to start taking some accountability...actually, it was probably time over a year ago. You can't just do whatever you want and expect the whole "being able to take care of my family" thing to happen for you, and Chane hasn't fully grasped that yet.
These types of stories seem to always foster debates over whether or not marijuana should be legal, but regardless of where you stand on that issue, I think we can all agree on this: weed isn't worth letting down the number of people Chane has already let down or the number of people he'll let down in the future if this doesn't stop.
