Shit hit the fan in Tuscaloosa today. 74 Alabama students were arrested on various drug charges in one of the biggest drug busts in west Alabama. There were Narcotics Units breaking down dorm room doors starting at about 5 this morning, and they've continued to pick people up all day today from on and off campus. [...] At least 10 or 20 of the guys were in different fraternities around campus. [...] Some official statements from the university have mentioned expulsion for the students involved.
And more from blog.al.com:
The 183 charges for the 71 men and 3 women include sale of controlled substance, sale of marijuana, possession of controlled substance, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The majority of the charges were for marijuana, but police also found drugs including cocaine, LSD, ecstasy, mushrooms and prescription pills, said Tuscaloosa Police Chief Steve Anderson. Several guns and thousands of dollars were seized as search and arrest warrants were executed today.
Confidential informants were strategically placed and used to build evidence. The investigation, of which has been in the works for over two months, has got to be the biggest bust in recent university history.
Here is a list of the 74 people booked on charges from the arrest roundup:

We'll update the story as more information comes in.

Lol for weed.
Unless you are as dumb as a brick you have to know thousands of kids do it at every college.
Over 50% by my guess.
Have not heard of any football players.
Sabans even processing students.
His reach is limitless
Hail Lord Saban
Just because people are doing it doesn't make it legal.
I always get a chuckle from people who smile for their mug shots - just funny
dawg...we could make a board just out of arrests @ UGA.....JUST SAYN!!!??

Free country bro... Start one! JUST SAYIN!!!??
Yeah we only have some of the strongest drug and discipline policies in the land. That can not be disputed.
Ok I'm a bama guy, and I realize that some may say I'm a little biased, but this is ridiculous. This is what the cops are doing? No telling how long it took to get all the stuff they need to arrest this many people. I could see doing all this if it were serious drugs being moved, or even a major weed business going on. These are just kids buying and selling really small amounts of weed for themselves/friends. I wonder how much money that these people spent investigating all of this.
I found some pictures of nick saban before he got his knee implants......
At least be original
can outsmoke all of them combined
Seriously . What a waste. I'm sad

To me there is no difference between small amounts and huge drug rings. Get them all off the streets.
To me, I prefer freedom over tyranny

Honestly, it's just weed. It should be legal.
I'd personally like to see the police in Tuscaloosa out patrolling Tuscaloosa instead of in fraternity houses and dorm rooms sniffing for weed.
But hey, my drug of choice is the sweet nectar of booze and that's legal so no worries here
To me , alcohol should be outlawed for the same reasons as all other intoxicating addictive drugs
Shut your whore mouth
Mods, ban this lady.
