Virginia Tech freshman Jarell Eddie faces marijuana charge

By Mark Giannotto

Virginia Tech freshman Jarell Eddie was charged last Tuesday for possession of marijuana, according to Montgomery County (Va.) General District Court online records. He did not play in the Hokies' 61-54 loss at Virginia on Saturday, and is due to appear in court for an 8:30 a.m. hearing on April 21.

The misdemeanor charge -- which carries a maximum penalty of 30 days in prison and a $500 fine for a first offense in Virginia -- came on the same day as the Hokies' 91-83 win over Maryland. That night, Eddie, a 6-7, 209-pound wing played seven minutes and scored just one point, but his effort was singled out for praise by Coach Seth Greenberg.

When asked about how little his bench played against the Cavaliers Saturday, Coach Seth Greenberg simply said it was a "coach's decision." He did not immediately respond to a text message Sunday evening seeking comment on Eddie's status.

Eddie, a Charlotte native, has appeared in 24 games off the bench this season, averaging 2.6 points and 2 rebounds per contest. He's shown flashes of the player that scored more than 2,000 points in high school, but Greenberg has sometimes acknowledged his youthful inconsistencies.

Can't we get rid of prohibition in Virginia? California still manages to exist even with legal weed.
