It appears the CFL will allow Duron Carter to have his cookies and eat them, too.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders receiver is facing two separate drug charges, but probably won’t be subject to a penalty from the league according to TSN reporter Dave Naylor.

Carter was caught with more than 30 grams of marijuana at the Winnipeg International Airport on Nov. 25, 2017. The next court date for Carter in the Manitoba capital is April 9.
Under the current Criminal Code, a first offence involving possession of 30 grams of marijuana could lead to a $1,000 fine and a year in jail. And while personal marijuana use is slated to become legal in Canada this summer, possession of more than 30 grams will still be against the law.
Carter may still face criminal charges, but — as far as the league is concerned — this cookie has already crumbled.
