Apparently, Dmitri Young's Marijuana Was Medicinal

Anyone remember Dmitri Young? He played for the Nationals a few years back, hit a few home runs, misplayed a couple balls at first base, and that's pretty much it. Now, he's working for the Oakland County Cruisers of the independent Frontier league, and much more notably, getting arrested for misdemeanor marijuana possession.

Ah, the quasi-celebrity mug shot, probably the least flattering picture in the world. According to Young (via Steinberg), that marijuana was for medicinal reasons, and therefore, sooooo not that big a deal.

If true, that's a huge relief because the Big Herb (get it? like Frank Thomas, but with drugs) was one of my all-time faves. I hope he stays out of trouble in the future, or at the very least keeps his prescription handy.
