- Anti-cocaine laws NOT about the public health for banning drug in all forms regardless of concentration factor- primarily market protection for adulterated Tobacco cigarettes;

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Matt Jones faces a felony drug charge in Fayetteville, Ark., after police say he was inside a car cutting up cocaine with a credit card.

Jones, 25, and two other men were arrested early Thursday. A police report said officers approached the car and an officer drew his handgun after Jones did not immediately show his hands.

Police said they searched the vehicle and found a plastic bag filled with a white substance that tested positive for cocaine and a jar with possible marijuana residue.

Jared Hicks and Benjamin Cook were also arrested on misdemeanor drug charges.

Jones was released from the Washington County jail on $2,500 bond. His arraignment on a charge of felony possession of a controlled substance was set for Aug. 11, two days after Jacksonville's exhibition opener against Atlanta.

Police said six grams of cocaine was found. The threshold for potential charges of possession with intent to deliver is one gram. However, prosecutor John Threet said there was no evidence that Jones intended to deal the drug.
