A former wide receiver with the Saskatchewan Roughriders has been given an absolute discharge after admitting to marijuana possession.

Duron Carter’s lawyer appeared in Saskatoon provincial court and replaced his client’s not guilty plea from earlier this year with one of guilty.

Carter was arrested at the Saskatoon airport in February after customs officers opened a cigar package in his luggage and found cannabis inside.

He was also fined $100.
