Sources detail new marijuana drug policy punishment schedule

Under the revised substance-abuse policy still being finalized, the new sanctions for marijuana testing are changing.

According to sources, a first violation would be a referral, a two-game fine for a second offense, a four-game fine for a third offense, a four-game suspension for a fourth offense and a 10-game suspension for a fifth offense and a banishment for at least a yea for a sixth offense.

The finishing touches are still being applied.
