Corie Blount Busted With 29 Pounds Of Weed

by Ryne Nelson

If you watched 90s basketball, you probably wondered if Corie Blount would ever get caught with dank.

Well, it happened: Police charged Blunt…er, Blount, with possession of over $50,000 worth of marijuana. Not only that, he got caught picking up 11 pounds of burnout in the mail, had three vehicles and three guns confiscated…it’s real dirty folks.

With more information and pictures from today’s drug bust, The Cincinnati Inquirer has it covered.

(Police) said that Blount arrived at the residence to retrieve the package, which contained 11 pounds of marijuana.


Police searched Blount’s home and the residence where the package was delivered. At Blount’s residence, deputies said they found a second package of marijuana containing about 11 pounds of marijuana. Authorities say a third package contained seven pounds of marijuana.

In addition to confiscating the 29 pounds of marijuana, the Butler County Sheriff’s Office confiscated $29,500 in cash, three vehicles and three guns.

Yes, Corie Blount is a millionaire with a degree in criminal justice.

In related news, Bob Huggins’ legacy at Cincinnati continues to ripen.

    Current NBA related people that i think smoke weed:

    D!ck Bavetta-old crazy hippy

    Andre Aldrige- Why is he always so happy? Because he is stoned like Israeli Soliders on the west bank, thats why!

    Stephon Marbury- See 2007,Summer of

    David Stern- Only way to deal with constant crtisim

    Phil Jackson- Honelsty, with all his ‘new age’ coaching garbage, i think this is the only one of these names that might actually be true

    Izzo; Walton snorts Cocaine, check his nostrils, and his ringtone is the song with the same title by Eric Clapton. Preach.

    Who da hell is Corie Blount

  • justin

    If he has 29 pounds (HELL YEAH!)and it was estimated at $50g, he had to be messing with some straight dirt. Flying dirt across the country?? Was he selling to teenagers?

  • justin

    - and when ya’ll mention people in the NBA who smoke, ya’ll gotta stop only listing like 5 people. Mad people spark up, just like everywhere else. Probably not really during the season though.

  • http://www.ballislife.com Arek

    29 pounds.. holyyyy sheeeeeeeet

    justin, prices are way cheaper when you buy at large amounts

  • Mark Z

    Wow. He is NOT messing around. He must be THE weed guy in Cinci.
