Police also found 6 more pounds of pot inside the house as well as drug paraphernalia such as "packaging materials, scales and smoking devices," California Department of Justice spokeswoman Michelle Gregory told the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Police detained the players but didn't arrest them and no charges have been filed. The case will be addressed Thursday by the Kenton County (Ky.) prosecutor's office.
"The house was set up as a potential distribution network," Tommy LaNier, head of the National Marijuana Initiative, told CaliforniaWatch.org, which broke the story.
