According to authorities, Caruso allegedly had a grinder containing less than two ounces of weed that was found when the TSA searched his bags.

Caruso was eventually cut loose after posting bond, according to the same ESPN report.

Honestly, I can’t believe we’re still arresting people over small amounts of weed. It’s one thing if you have a bunch of drugs on you.

While I’m not a weed expert, allegedly having a grinder containing weed would seem to indicate Caruso didn’t have much on him at all.

As a country, I kind of thought we all agreed locking people up for small amounts of marijuana wasn’t worth our time and resources. I guess that we haven’t come as far as I thought.

Hopefully, Caruso gets nothing more than a slap on the wrist and can move forward without any issues. Doing crystal meth is a bad idea. Allegedly having a grinder with some weed in it isn’t something anyone should really sweat.
