Former Chicago Bear Sam Hurd Sentenced to 15 Years on Drug Charges

Sam Hurd, a former NFL wide receiver for the Chicago Bears, was sentenced on Wednesday to 15 years in federal prison.

Hurd’s troubles began in 2011 when he was arrested after buying cocaine from an undercover officer. Hurd reportedly told the officer he was part of a major drug ring that would be buying and distributing in large amounts in the future.

But it appears California marijuana was Hurd’s preferred drug of choice. “Whatever was considered the loudest weed in California — I wanted a notch above that,” said Hurd, who would import two to 10 pounds at a time from the West Coast. “I had educated myself on different strains and potencies and growing techniques. I was very selective. It was like wine.”

How often did Hurd turn to weed from the Golden State? “All day, every day,” when it came to smoking high-grade marijuana.
