Texas school superintendent facing marijuana possession charge

A routine traffic stop on the evening of March 6 led to a misdemeanor drug possession charge for the superintendent of a major Texas public school district. The man was taken into custody by a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper after less than 2 ounces of marijuana was allegedly discovered in his vehicle. Media reports indicate that he was released from the Robertson County Jail on his own recognizance on March 7.

According to a DPS report, the man's car was pulled over on U.S. Highway 190 about 55 miles from Waco for driving in the passing lane. The trooper says that he became suspicious and decided to conduct a probable cause search of the vehicle after noticing the odor of marijuana.

Texas native and former NFL quarterback Vince Young was arrested for allegedly driving while intoxicated in early February, 2019 in Missouri City. However, Young says he is innocent. He made the statement during an appearance at the TRISTAR Houston show. "It's just an allegation," the former Heisman Trophy runner-up said when speaking about the incident.

Young, who first played football at Madison High School in Houston, also responded to the DWI allegations on Twitter by pledging to "make sure this never happens again."

Texas traffic stop leads to large drug seizure

A routine traffic stop in Texas on January 18 led to the discovery and seizure of 50 pounds of a substance believed to be cocaine, according to a report from the Fayette County Sheriff's Office. An FCSO representative says that the drugs would be worth about $5 million if sold on the street. A 50-year-old Mexican national has been taken into custody in connection with the alleged drug haul. Police have yet to determine how the narcotics were smuggled into the United States.

According to media accounts, an FCSO deputy with a K9 partner pulled over a Mazda CX-9 on Interstate 10 between Houston and San Antonio for an undisclosed traffic violation. The deputy, who, reports indicate, is a drug-interdiction specialist, says that he became suspicious when the man behind the wheel of the SUV gave inconsistent and contradictory answers to questions about his journey and itinerary. The deputy claims that the man then gave him permission to search his vehicle for drugs.

Possible consequences of drug use for teens

Texas teenagers who use drugs with friends may face severe consequences. Legally, they could be charged as a drug dealer for sharing them or with homicide if a friend overdoses as a result.

However, prescription drugs are becoming more popular, and The Foundation for a Drug-Free World reports that for the vast majority of prescription drug addicts, the addiction begins in the teen years. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that one-quarter of abusers of prescription drugs began taking them before the age of 13.

Texas man faces drug charges after traffic stop

A Texas man is facing drug charges after he was arrested by Bryan police at a traffic stop on Dec. 21, 2018. According to police, the 24-year-old man was found carrying almost 30 grams of methamphetamine in his pants pocket. The man was arrested by police after they checked the license plate of a car parked on Long Drive. While the car soon drove away from the area, police noticed that the car owner's license was suspended. They pulled the car over near an access road to Texas State Highway 6.

Police spoke with the driver, who reportedly consented to a search of the vehicle. The Bryan police claimed that the passenger appeared to be nervous and was reluctant to leave the vehicle. Police say that the man told them that he was upset because he had previously been arrested on a drug charge. While searching the vehicle, police said that they found a small amount of marijuana as well as 27.3 grams of crystal meth in the possession of the passenger. Police also claimed that the man said that he was planning to sell the methamphetamine to make money to pay a lawyer to defend him from the outstanding drug charges.
