Boy, weed is a such a loaded topic these days ain't it? While we recognize it has it's medicinal purpose that help heal many.. let's be real, some people just use it recreationally.

I was one of those people back in the day. Straight out I was a chronic in high school & even into my mid 20's lol. And I can honestly it did nothing to me. It didn't affect my driving, it didn't affect my ability to go out, have fun, pick up girls etc..etc. I didn't lose ambition in life nor in my career.

But that's me and only me. For every 10 buddies I have that are stoners and weren't affected in any way, shape or form?..., there's always that 1 guy that was & turned into a complete buzzard. He lost the drive, lost the ambition. So I definitely understand both sides of the argument.

I don't know what the NFL can do or will do. Truth is.. I think the league will eventually lose this fight. So many athletes are doing it and they're not gonna stop. I know lawyers that do it, my buddy is a Real Estate Agent and he gets high ever night. I've dated Nurses that smoke weed, Teachers that smoke weed, an inspector in the Ministry of Labour..and even a girl at the local DMV.

I do think marijuana & hemp definitely has a place in our society even though these pharmaceutical companies don't want to acknowledge it because they can't capitalize on it.  After all... you can't put a patent on a plant.

It's so stupid IMO. I don't put my alcohol buzz above someone else's weed buzz, but the fact is, these guys are faced with a choice. Make MILLIONS over a very short period of time or smoke weed and end up like CRog, passing out in local bars and driving his broken down 10 year old Mercedes. PUT IT DOWN for like 5 years, make a mint and then move to Colorado and burn down from morning (well afternoon) till night for the rest of your life if you want to. But they don't have the DISCIPLINE to do it. A ton of guys game the system and know that they may only get tested once or twice a year and they know when they are coming and put it aside for a couple months prior to the tests. But once you get popped that first time, you know you will get randoms. They STILL continue and then you see the suspensions. I don't see the NFL ever allowing MJ, BUT it's about the biggest chip the owners could possibly imagine! OK guys, we want 18 game seasons, no concussion lawsuits, 8 year rookie contracts but we'll stop testing for weed... DONE!!!!!!!!!!

Let me guess.  You aren't here for the Alcohol or Tobacco...

The thing that kills me is that all these idiots usually get caught for driving like morons. Fairley for example was clocked going 100MPH while impaired. When you drive a nice car while driving like a maniac then you are begging to get caught.

while i can't deny the logic of what you're saying at all, the fact is most of these guys are barely 20 when they hit the nfl.  my guess is the same percentage of idiocy occurs in the general population that probably occurs with these nfl athletes for the same age demographic.  not condoning it or making an excuse for it, just trying to say they're young and dumb and exploring.   we've probably all been there before.  their stakes appear to be higher though and you would think a coach or family member or somebody would be able to drill the importance of embracing that window of opportunity they have.   and with all that money.. paying a little bit for a chauffer would alleviate a good portion of these offenses and they'd still be able to be a kid, grow up normally while being a professional athlete and never risk injuring someone else or themselves in the process.

I can't remember a single post about Blackman.. I bet the NFL has a bigger alcohol problem than it does a weed problem and I bet the percentage is higher than many would believe. The government will figure out how to regulate this industry and then tax it and everyone will smoke it Well, not everyone, I won't .

I actually think weed would be legal if we had a test that could quickly and cheaply tell how "high" someone was.  With alcohol we can determine levels fast.  No such thing for weed that I am aware of.  So weed gets the bad rap because we cant be certain how messed up you are via a test/standard. 

That said, we all know what the rules are.

back in the day when Blackmon was a draft prospect, I thought we had a brief debate over him being picked up by us, seems to that there were quite a bit of offensive and defensive prospects in that draft....2012 draft I believe.

I hope in 2015 the draft class is as deep as the 2013 one was....there were TONS on nice prospects in the 2013...

I don't recall ever wanting to draft him, didn't think we needed him. However, I thought he looked like a better Roy Williams coming out of college and thought he would do well. WRs are a tricky bunch thats for sure.

Didn't  NEED him!? MAN outside of Calvin we had some real scrubs that couldn't stay healthy...Blackmon was a nice catcher...and he'd be playing today if drugs weren't more important to em.

but I guarantee he was better than anybody we had not named Calvin Johnson -then.

Calvin is a rare breed of NFL player. He comes from a very staple house hold and his parents were strict on him growing up. 

-Sure he was unbelievably talented but he puts the hard work in from the foundation his parents instilled about working hard and keeping his nose clean. 

I believe his mother was a principle if not mistaken. If he wasn't playing football he'd probably be working on rebuilding bridges or something. Point is he's be successful whatever he chose because of the environment he grew up in.
