: Former world heavyweight boxing champion Tommy Morrison appeared in a Kansas court yesterday afternoon where he was charged with possessing large quantities of MARIJANA.
Morrison, who is only 42 years old, was charged with felony possession of controlled substances and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia for use. His bond is set at $50,000.
He was arrested in March 4, 2010 in Wichita for possession of marijuana. He had a prior conviction under a similar offense in South Dakota back in 2005.
Tommy, nicknamed “the Duke,” defeated George Foreman in 1993 to win the WBO heavyweight title. He also starred in the movie “Rocky V”.
He was forced to RETIRE from boxing when he tested positive for HIV.
