I'm all for not kicking someone to the curb and trying to help the kids that need it. The staff accepted his commitment with huge grade issues and helped him qualify given his tough situation and all the transfers and such.
The staff stuck by him with national media attention regarding a felony charge for child porn and put him in touch with solid legal counsel. Now he put himself and the University in a deeper hole for some weed.
This isn't about my legal stance on bud. This is about keeping your nose clean and not smoking some bud until your charges are cleared up. Instead, he put himself and the University in a worse place. It's a character concern and isn't the leadership the staff preaches.
