Two Florida State football players face marijuana complaints

Florida State defensive back Kyle Meyers and running back Zaquandre White are due in court next week because they face marijuana-related complaints.

Tallahassee Police spotted Meyers and White in a gravel parking lot after 11:30 p.m. ET on Jan. 31 according to The Tampa Bay Times. When the police approached their car, they saw White smoking a marijuana cigarette according to an incident report.

Meyers told police that he and his teammate smoke marijuana together “occasionally but not often.” Meyers said they were passing the cigarette back and forth and then pushed it into a Gatorade bottle once they saw police approaching the car.

Both players cooperated with the investigation according to The Tampa Bay Times, but not initially. The police report says Meyers was “argumentative” at times, as he argued with police that the cigarette was not marijuana even after the drug tested positive for marijuana at the scene. There were also traces of marijuana on Meyers’ pants.

White and Meyers both face complaints for possession of less than 20 grams of cannabis. White also faces complaints of possession of narcotic equipment.

Both are due in court on Feb. 22.
