    Suprising that they would admit it...maybe they figure by them being honest, it will help them.

    Huh.
    I was really expecting this to be an onion story...

    OK, just waiting for the threads that say CJ will drop to #7 because of his admitted MJ use... :

    Indeed.

    I'm sure they would rather have it come out on their own terms and avoid an even bigger scandal...

    Honestly, I'm beginning to question what the big deal is about Marijuana. Honestly, I bet 65% of college kids have at least tried it, where as only a small percentage, like <5% are your stereotypical pot heads. So many other adults do it too, I'm not surprised about this at all. And I don't think it's anything of a big deal. It's only new b/c so many other people aren't in touch with reality on this issue, thinking Reggie was the only sports figure to smoke up. I guarantee a large proportion of sports figures do too. This
    is way over hyped. NEXT

    I like ur style!!Hadn't thought of it like that. I hope CJ does slip, but apart from this incident he sounds pretty clean cut, therefore i dont think he will slip to #7. I think it needs something more serious like he killed a cat once and drove around with it on his head whilst barking and shouting "yo mama!!"...that might work?!

    big deal... i guarantee at least 60% of the players in the draft have tried mary J at some point.
    All they admitted is that they HAVE smoked pot.
    It may have been 5 years ago.
    they don't say they currently smoke pot so its nothing to really worry about at all.

    Yup; if someone breaks the law, it's ok because almost everyone is doing it.
    :

    Where did you get the 65% 'guesstatistic'?
    Oh, wait; it was your guess!
    Was the 5% also a guesstatistic, too?
    If you were opposed to marijuana use, would you guess that 65% of collegiate students never use it?

    Are laws set in your state according to YOUR opinion that it's a big deal, or it's no big deal?

    You are correct about one thing, though; i.e. that marijuana use is way over-hyped.... by those who use it.
    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !
