Clarion- NBA forward and Starkville native Travis Outlaw is under “investigation for a possible scheduled narcotics violation,” multiple law enforcement officials said Friday.
According to three sources, Outlaw, 30, is being investigated for receiving “approximately a pound or less” of marijuana in the mail in the Golden Triangle.
The officials asked that they and their agencies not be named at this time. The investigation, which reportedly began as a joint effort, is currently taking place in Oktibbeha County, the law enforcement officials said. Outlaw has not been arrested, according to records at the Oktibbeha County Jail.
Wait just a damn minute here. Is this frowned upon? Is this not okay? Is Travis Outlaw not allowed to receive his weekly weed fix via UPS Priority mail? I got to plead ignorance on this one. Seems completely legit to me. Now that automatic bill pay exists, drugs are pretty much the only useful thing that can come in the mail. It would certainly put me in a better mood than a bunch of shitty advertisements for local businesses. Wasn't the spreading of anthrax done primarily through the parcel service? If they were the accomplice to biological warfare for an extended period of time I think we can let Travis Outlaw have a pass on his 'glaucoma medication'. Shit, people receive a lot more questionable shit in the mail then a drug that is already legalized throughout half of this country. There's a website where you can buy actual gorilla feces by the pound and send to your friends as a prank, and we are worried about Outlaw's Cannabis Cup winner? The guy is in South East Asia for fuck's sake. Give him a break. I don't even think Travis Outlaw could survive San Francisco without being as high as a kite, never mind an entirely different country.
Here's my issue. Shouldn't we be investigating the guy who sent Travis Outlaw the marijuana, and not Travis Outlaw? I highly doubt that package came with a receipt. I'm going to go out on a limb and say the guy packing up marijuana and shipping it across continental lines doesn't have an elaborate invoice system. If there is no paper trail can there still be a legitimate investigation? If that's the case can I just start shipping coke and ecstasy to a bunch of people I don't like then notify the authorities? As they say, keep your friends close, and your enemies locked up for unknowingly receiving your narcotics. Seems like a pretty bullet proof plan to always stay ahead of your competition. How long ago did this happen and how did he get caught? As far as I am concerned the statue of limitations is up as soon as all the drugs are gone. Get to smoking Trav, you've got some evidence to bury.
