When it rains it pours. Ex-NFL wide receiver Sam Hurd purchased over 200 pounds of cannabis while waiting for trial on federal charges of attempting to create an illegal drug ring, according to federal prosecutors. A native San Antonian, the drug kingpin was charged on a action for criminal arrest and revocation of pre-trial discharge. He previously had been released last December with a $100,000 bond, 2 days immediately after he allegedly met in a Windy City steak house with an undercover federal officer and consented to get hydroponic cannabis (1,000 lbs) and countless kilos of cocaine per week, for reselling. Sam Hurd, an ex Chicago Bear and Dallas Cowboy, was cut by the Bears right after they heard of his off-field antics. Smoking marijuana medically or recreationally isn’t that big a marijuana news headlines — but trying to be the next drug kingpin is another story.
The fallen star and also Toby Lujan Dallas, ended up being charged in the Federal Court of Dallas with conspiracy to possess along with intention to disperse five kilograms or more of the drug cocaine, and possession with intent to deliver over 500 grams or more of hydroponic indoor grown cannabis. Last June, while the cannabis entrepreneur was free due to the hefty bond and now waiting for trial, Hurd’s cousin, Jesse Tyrone Chavful and co-defendant, had been imprisoned subsequent to attempting to purchase five kilograms of coke and about 200 pounds of cannabis for the ex-football drug Kingpin, based on prosecutors’ motion.

Prosecutors say Chavful’s admission of owning cellphone exposure to Sam Hurd for the duration of crucial points of the shipping and delivery is validate by phone records suggesting he’d called a mobile phone owned by Hurd’s sibling 3 times immediately after Chavful was told the harmful cocaine and holistic marijuana plant were on the way to his store. Hurd also failed 2 drugs tests for marijuana in spring and confessed he previously had smoked marijuana. To smoke 2 joints is one thing, being the next Scarface is another.
