Pot/Herb/Marijuana are illegal. There is no excuse!!! It doesn't make a difference if you partook as a youth or even as an adult it is illegal. These boys broke the rules and the law. I am sure their parents understand the severity of the situation and unless you can identify yourself as a parent you should not be assuming what these parents are like and or what they do in their free time, and how they are handling the situation. Kids make mistakes and they are suffering the consequences of their actions. Some of the boys are committed and could lose their commit. We all were young and foolish and made mistakes. This could have been much worse for all and I am sure the boys have learned a valuable life lesson.
All parents of players should discuss this with their children and explain to them the consequences.
