Nets All-Star D’Angelo Russell was busted at LaGuardia Airport on Thursday for trying to sneak weed on an airplane in a fake Arizona Iced Tea can. 

Former NBA player Stephen Jackson decided to give his opinion on the matter and showed his support for the 23-year-old’s use of the drug.

Just got my wrk in for the day. Thinking bout @dloading stay strong kid. They rather u take man made stuff so they can benefit. Itโ€™s only a prob having it if u successful and black. Itโ€™s dam near legal. Who wants to take man made drugs and get hooked then when u stop playing u can get them now u strung out. Sad game the play. #GBG #TMC Love to all. โœŠ๐ŸฟโœŠ๐ŸผโœŠ๐ŸพโœŠ๐ŸปโœŠ๐Ÿฝ Gotta be smarter DLo but remember itโ€™s a โ€œPLANTโ€ not a drug. Facts. Do your homework.

As you can see Cavs guard J.R. Smith agrees with Jackson’s breakdown of the situation.  Despite that fact, Jackson probably isn’t going to receive a call from the NBA anytime soon to mentor the league’s young players.
