Former Falcons teammates Julio Jones and Roddy White are being sued by a cannabis company for alleged fraud and money laundering.  In a lawsuit filed by the cannabis company Genetix the two are accused of selling millions of dollars of weed on the black market.

From Larry Brown Sports:

Genetixs alleges that Jones and White, who were teammates on the Atlanta Falcons for five years, went behind the company’s back to work with the Van Beeks. The Van Beeks allegedly cultivated and grew cannabis for sale on the illegal black market, enriching themselves and Jones and White. The Van Beeks disconnected cameras in the facility, began squatting there, and prevented a new manager from entering the facility, according to the complaint.

The suit says the Van Beeks have not reported sales to Genetixs since March. Genetixs estimate about $3 million in cannabis has been harvested and sold illegally per month since then.

The Van Beeks, in connection with White and Jones, allegedly abandoned the Genetixs Cannabis Facility and surrendered the premises to the landlord. Before doing so, they allegedly “looted, removed, and misappropriated” Genetixs’ cannabis derived from more than 22 harvests. They allegedly removed and misappropriated machinery, equipment, and fixtures located within the facility that are worth millions.

This sounds very, very interesting.  $3 million in cannabis going out the door every month since March without any record of the sales is a lot of product that has seemingly disappeared...
