Michael Vick gets tested positive for marijuana

In SUSSEX, Virginia, suspended NFL quarterback Michael Vick must adhere to tightened restrictions after he tested positive for marijuana use, a federal judge said Wednesday.

Suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick tested positive for marijuana in a September 13 drug test.

Vick tested positive for the drug on September 13, a court document from the Eastern District of Virginia shows.

As a result, U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson ordered Vick to “submit to any method of testing required by the pretrial services officer or the supervising officer for determining whether the defendant is using a prohibited substance.”

Those methods could include random drug testing, a remote alcohol testing system “and/or any form of prohibited substance screening or testing,” the order said.

Vick, 27, must participate in substance abuse therapy and mental health counseling “if deemed advisable by the pretrial services officer or supervising officer” at his own expense, the order said.

Vick was also ordered to stay home between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., “or as directed by the pretrial services officer or supervising officer,” the order said. He is to be electronically monitored during that time.

The conditions are to apply until Vick’s sentencing, which is set for December 10.

“This is a very difficult time for Mr. Vick,” said Billy Martin, Vick’s lead defense counsel, in a written statement. “He will comply with the court’s new conditions regarding release.”

Vick faces a possible prison term of 12 to 18 months after his August guilty plea to federal conspiracy charges related to dogfighting on his property in Surry County, Virginia. The original terms of the pretrial release, set in July by U.S. Magistrate Dennis W. Dohnal, required that Vick not use narcotic drugs or other controlled substances unless prescribed by a doctor.

Vick’s guilty plea in the federal case came after three associates, Purnell Peace, 35, of Virginia Beach, Virginia; Quanis Phillips, 28, of Atlanta, Georgia; and Tony Taylor, 34, of Hampton, Virginia, admitted their roles in the operation and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors.

On Tuesday, a Virginia grand jury indicted Vick and the three co-defendants on state charges of running a dogfighting ring at the home.

The Surry County grand jury brought two charges against Vick: one count of unlawfully torturing and killing dogs and one of promoting dogfights. Each is a felony charge that could result in a five-year prison term.

Vick will be arraigned October 3 in state court in Virginia.

Vick’s attorneys say they are fighting the state charges on the grounds that he can’t be convicted twice of the same crime.

Michael…won’t you ever learn…behave and stay out of trouble…youare a great athelete, but you are not displaying common sense…these hommies are not playing with you…you do not have the ball at the one yard line!

Michael Vick…when are you going to quit making bad decisions…if you have pancakes for breakfast, they are going to know it! If you are NOT supposed to eat pancakes for breakfast, don’t eat them for breakfast! It is just that simple.

YOU are on their radar…so get smart and quit doing what they expect you to do.

Personally, I think alcohol and pharmaceuticals should be considered far worse than marijuana…and banned…yes I am a 60’s chick.

  1. ATT: STUPID PEOPLE!!! (PLEASE READ)
    YOU KNOW, YOU WOULD THINK A MAN WHO WAS SMART ENOUGH TO MAKE IT TO PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL AND MAKE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS WOULD HAVE ENOUGH SENSE TO HIRE A DECENT ATTORNEY OR DATE A WOMAN SMART ENOUGH TO KEEP HIM FREE. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHO I AM REFERRING TO, YES THE GOOD LOOKING ATLANTA FALCON STAR PLAYER MICHAEL VICK.
    IN LIGHT OF THE RECENT VERDICT PHIL SPECTOR A MAN WHO FITS THE DEFINITION “IF LOOKS COULD KILL” HAS MANAGED TO HANG A JURY FOR THE MURDER OF A STRUGGLING ACTRESS. THERE WERE SEVERAL WOMEN WHO TESTIFIED THAT HE THREATEN TO BLOW THERE BRAINS OUT AND A WORKER HEARD THE GUN SHOT AND SAW THE GUN IN HIS HAND AND HE MADE THE STATEMENT I THINK I KILLED HER AND SHE JUST HAPPEN TO BE DEAD HE WAS ABLE TO CONVINCE 2 PEOPLE THAT HE DIDN’T DO IT AND REMAINS FREE AS I SPEAK. VICK IS GOING TO JAIL FOR DOGS THAT DIED. OKAY WHAT THE F**K IS WRONG WITH A CRIMNAL -JUST- A SYSTEM WHERE WE VALUE THE LIFE OF ANIMALS MORE THAN PEOPLE? I WILL TELL YOU GREED, POLITICS, AND WHITE FOLKS, BUT I REALLY THINK VICK SHOULD BE INCARCERATED FOR BEING STUPID. HE PLEAD GUILTY FOLKS. THAT WAS THE MOST IGNORANT THING HE COULD HAVE EVER DONE. YOU GIVE UP EVERY CONSTITUTIONAL RIIGHT THAT YOU HAVE WHEN YOU DO THIS. HIS HIGH PRICED LAWYERS FAILED TO INFORM HIM THE PUNISHMENT IS THE SAME REGARDLESS OF IF YOU ARE FOUND GUILTY OR PLEAD GUILTY IN A FEDERAL CASE. SO, WHY NOT ROLL THE DICE AND BY A LITTLE MORE TIME. HIS PEOPLE SOLD HIM OUT AND TURNED STATES. YOU CAN ONLY DEAL WITH A RAT 2 WAYS TAKE IT LIKE A MAN OR GET GUTTA. I STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT ANYONE READING THIS LISTEN TO PLIES IS ALBUM THAT MAN IS TALKING SOME REAL SH*T AND UNTIL BLACK PEOPLE UTILIZE THEIR AFFORDED RIGHTS WE WILL BE BEAT AND BEAT DOWN EVERYTIME. THE ONLY THING VICK HAS DONE RIGHT SO FAR IS LIGHT ONE AND CAN ANY OF US BLAME HIM. I BET HE WAS LIKE DAMN WHAT HAVE I DONE? I LOST EVERYTHING. WAKE UP BLACK AMERICA THE PRISONS ARE THE NEW PLANTATIONS. MUST WE CONTINUE TO LET THESE FOLKS ENSLAVE US AGAIN? NO WE ARE ENSLAVING OURSELVES. SO STUPID PEOPLE IF NO ONE EVER TOLD YOU; WHEN YOU GET ARRESTED USE YOUR RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT AND DON’T TELL THEM NOTHING NOT EVEN YOUR NAME THEY ARE THE POLICE LET THEM DO WHAT THEY GET PAID TO DO. KEEP YOUR DAMN MOUTH SHUT, ALWAYS GET AN ATTORNEY IF YOU CAN’T AFFORD ONE MAKE THE SOB’S APPOINT ONE, IF YOU ARE NOT SATISFIED WITH THEM TELL THE JUDGE THERE IS A CONFLICT OF INTEREST THEY WILL GET YOU ONE THAT WILL HAVE TO WORK FOR YOU. IF YOU ARE GUILTY THAT’S BETWEEN YOU AND GOD, SO LET IT STAY THAT WAY. REMEMBER EVERYONE HAS DONE SOMETHING AT SOME POINT IN THEIR LIFE, YOU ARE AMONG THE GROUP THAT GOT CAUGHT AND THE PERSON WHO IS BOOKING YOU IS AMONG THE GROUP THAT ARE UNCAUGHT. THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE JUST CIRCUMSTANCE.

    THAT’S WHAT I SAID, THAT’S WHAT IT IS…

    You knew that.
