New England Patriots safety Duron Harmon had to cut his trip to Costa Rica short on Saturday. After arriving at his destination Harmon was detained when customs officers discovered he was transporting cannabis and marijuana paraphernalia.
Harmon had “58 grams of marijuana inside a can of iced tea, three pipes with cannabis oil, a THC candy, and four glass containers with compressed marijuana that weighed 4.3 grams” says NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport.
That amount would be illegal to possess in Massachusetts and other states that have legalized recreational marijuana use.
Since the incident, Harmon has issued an apology to Patriots personnel and fans through his Instagram account.
Harmon has not been arrested, but he was sent back to the US.
A statement released by the Patriots said, "We are aware of the situation involving Duron Harmon Friday night in Costa Rica. He has since returned to the U.S. and we are seeking to gain more information. At this time, we have no further update."
