Riders Duron Carter set to go on trial for pot charge in December


Saskatchewan Roughriders receiver Duron Carter is set to stand trial on marijuana possession charges on Dec. 3, according to the Regina Leader-Posts Murray McCormick.

Carter was charged on Feb. 1 after security officers at the Saskatoon airport found marijuana in his bag following a search.

Carter has already received an absolute discharge after pleading guilty to possession of marijuana stemming from an incident at the Winnipeg airport last November. Both the CFL and team have said they do not expect Carter to face supplementary discipline and the Canadian government recently announced that Canadians will be able to legally purchase and consume recreational marijuana as of Oct. 17.

Carter doesn’t seem too worried about it.
