If you must smoke weed, please don't smoke it in your car. If you must smoke weed in your car, please don't race down the highway at 118 m.p.h. If and when you get pulled over by the police for all these illegal actions, you must answer the cops as honestly and hilariously as this Oregon football player did.
Oregon cornerback Cliff Harris was speeding at 118 m.p.h. down an Oregon highway on June 12 at 4:30 a.m. when he was pulled over by an Oregon state patrolman. The officer asked, "Who's got the marijuana in the car?" Harris replied, "We smoked it all." Now that's a very honest, "blunt" answer.
Luckily for Harris, the officer was a big Oregon Ducks fan. When the officer asked the names of the people in the car, he recognized that Harris played football and so did his passenger, Oregon quarterback Darron Thomas. Despite the heavy smell of ganja, the lack of a valid driver's license, and traveling speeds of nearly 120 m.p.h., the officer let them go. Oregon football must be a big deal to escape arrest. I guess that's what happens when two of the three pro teams in Oregon are the WNBA's Portland Fire and the AFL's Portland Forest Dragons.
Harris did have repercussions at Oregon though; he was suspended for the season-opener against LSU in Cowboys Stadium. Oregon head coach Chip Kelly said that Thomas would not be disciplined: "I'm not punishing someone for being a passenger."
Harris is an All-American cornerback and punt returner. He led the Pac-10 with six interceptions last season. Thomas earned second-team All-Pac-10 honors after throwing 30 touchdown passes as a first-year starter.
