Although much has been made of RVD and Sabu’s Sunday night drug arrest, it appears that they both have little to fear.
RVD was cited because he was found with 18 grams of marijuana and five Vicodin. There is no mention in the article on kratomcrazy.com of whether or not a drug test was conducted at the scene, which could make it difficult to make a case for a DUI against RVD. If the Vicodin was prescribed, he will face no charges for that either. According to The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), possession of less that 100 grams is considered a minor misdemeanor in Ohio. RVD faces a $100.00 fine, but there is no jail time and it does not even create a criminal record in Ohio. If they charge him with intent to sell the 18 grams of marijuana, that too is a minor misdemeanor with a maximum $100.00 fine and no jail time. So long as the Vicodin was prescribed and no drug test was performed, RVD could at the worst be out $200.00.
Sabu, on the other hand, has a bit of a problem but it’s nothing to consider too serious. Knowing that Sabu lives in constant pain, let us first assume that the 9 unidentifiable pills found on him were prescribed. He was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor. He faces up to 30 days in jail and a $750 dollar fine. For whatever reason, the law states that the man with the bong/pipe/bowl has committed a worse crime than the man with the drugs. Sabu will probably be able to avoid jail time as he is a first time offender and considering the small amount of marijuana found in the car, but keep in mind I am not a lawyer.
Both men, if convicted, will lose their driver’s license for a period of six months to five years.
Perhaps now we can all take a deep breath and calm down, hmmm?
