Major League Baseball has a policy against the use of recreational drugs; the music business does not. Of course, if you get pulled over in your car and try to swallow a dime bag of weed in front of the cops, you're going to get arrested no matter what you do.
Last night Elijah Dukes, a former top prospect for the Tampa Bay Rays (who famously punched his pregnant girlfriend), was arrested during a routine traffic stop when he allegedly tried to eat a bag of weed. Dukes, who now raps under the name Fly Eli, recently did an interview with a Tampa news station where he claimed to have smoked before games, and that teammates smuggled pot onto charter flights in the big leagues. Have you ever faced a 95 mph fastball...on weed?!? Fly Eli has!
