Justin Blackmon arrested, charged with marijuana possession

<p> Justin Blackmon is an immensely talented wide receiver. But Blackmon hasn't been able to stay out of trouble, which has derailed what should be a promising career in the NFL.</p> <p> Still serving an indefinite suspension from the NFL for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, Blackmon may have put the hopes of getting back into the NFL any time soon in jeopardy. On Wednesday, Blackmon was arrested in Oklahoma for marijuana possession, <a href="http://www.newson6.com/story/26102571/former-osu-football-star-justin-blackmon-arrested-in-edmond">according to Tulsa's Channel 6 News</a>.</p> <p> The report states that Blackmon was pulled over in a traffic stop, to which a police officer smelled marijuana. Upon searching Blackmon's vehicle, the cop found some marijuana and arrested the former Oklahoma State receiver. </p> <p> In 2012, Blackmon was selected with the fifth-overall pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Though he's shown flashes of football brilliance, he's never been able to give the Jaguars much due to his off-field troubles. He's had two prior drunk driving arrests and was given an indefinite suspension after the first four games in 2013. </p> <p> Unless Blackmon can completely turn around his life at this point, his career in the NFL is in serious doubt.</p> <p> Follow me on Twitter: <a href="http://twitter.com/jasonhbutt">@JasonHButt</a></p>
