The news out of Georgia on May 28, 2013, looks a lot like the news out of New York, since a UGA Bulldogs football player here, and a troubled celebrity there, have both spent time this month being accused of marijuana use. The AJC reports Tuesday that Josh Harvey Clemons may get suspended for one game over his use of the illegal substance, while Fox News said today that police believe Amanda Bynes flung a marijuana-smoking tool out of her hotel room on the 37th floor and then she began acting erratic.
This isn’t the first time the former child-star has raised an eyebrow, but it is the first time that the promising football player has managed to garner negative attention. And actress Rachel McAdams could have saved them both the trouble if they had heard her interview with Jimmy Kimmel Live, according to Contact Music.
According to Rachel, she was just looking for something to put her to sleep when a green grocer told her to take some of his green weed. The next thing she remembers is that her thoughts became abnormal.
McAdams says she was “hallucinating” too and hearing opera music for five hours straight. And she doesn’t want to ever go that route again, as it didn’t even put her to sleep as promised.
The Drug Enforcement Agency in America has taken a hard line against marijuana use despite some advocates citing its alleged “medicinal uses,” and the push to see it legalized in some states.
In fact, the DEA says science does not support any “medicinal use” for the drug, which is why the drug remains classified as a Schedule 1 drug of the Controlled Substances Act. And that’s why it is also still illegal to own or use in most of the country.
Amanda Bynes and Josh Harvey Clemons learned the hard way in May that smoking marijuana will still bring the police to your door, despite the drive to see the drug legalized. And now Bynes is making her situation worse by taking the offensive with police following her arrest for the bong-throwing incident.
The former child star is insisting she will sue the department for a litany of reasons, including the outrageous claim that two officers groped her during her arrest and that one officer “slapped my vagina.”
That latter claim is so “out there” that it could easily be explained by Rachel McAdams, who says she hallucinated while using just the “tiniest little teaspoon” of the drug. Imagine how it would impact someone smoking larger quantities of it from a bong, as it is being alleged that Bynes may have done?
The NYPD issued a statement on Tuesday that an independent and credible witness, who was at the scene when officers made contact with Amanda Bynes, has been interviewed and does not support the claims the celebrity is making against the officers in question.
Internal Affairs investigators have found no evidence to corroborate Ms. Bynes’ allegations,” NYPD Spokesman Paul Browne said.
Josh Harvey Clemons isn’t making any noise against the university police who found him and Ty Flournoy-Smith exhibiting signs of marijuana ingestion while in dorm room 303 at Vandiver Hall this month.
Clemons isn’t threatening to sue anyone either, and he isn’t claiming that any officer did anything that night that they should not have when they smelled marijuana emanating from the dorm room he occupied. And choosing not to go on the offense may keep Harvey Clemons out of worse trouble with campus police than Amanda Bynes is likely to face with the NYPD.
