    Suprising that they would admit it...maybe they figure by them being honest, it will help them.
    Or they have been smoking in the past and know with all the scrutinizing the scouts and media do that someone they used to smoke with will start talking. If they will find out anyway, what is the point of lying?

    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
    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.
    Oh goody, another pot thread!!!

    A LOT more college athletes have done this sort of thing than would admit it.

    There's something to be said for smoking marijuana. It may not be that "big of a deal" to many people, but you can still say something about someone's priorities if they're doing illegal things like this.

    This a not that big of a deal.
    Finding out that they just smoked up is a lot better than finding out they beat up their girlfriends or shot up a club and threw money at strippers.

    I wonder if anyone asked they players if any of them have ever drank alcohol. And if so were they 21 the first time.

    CJ to #7, Amobi to our second round pick...and Adams all the way to our third rounder!
    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?!
    I think I heard that CJ had made some comments about the Rutgers Womens Basketball team.

    There that should make him drop at least to #7.
    Its as good as done, CJ will be in the purple and gold next season.

    3M Corporation Job Application

    Name:
    Jmcdon00
    Address: 100 Anyroad St.

    City: Anytown
    State: MN

    relevant job experience:
    I worked at *************** Company, Anywhereville, MN
    hobbies: football, internet surfing, smoking pot because it's no big deal, etc.
    etc.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^


    What are the odds of being hired by 3M, etc. with this job application?
    OK, so lie on your application.
    If you weren't caught, you might get by with lying.

    What happens if you get caught with pot, etc. and are booked into police records - which employers could access under all, if not nearly all, state laws?
    Lying on the application wouldn't work out when police records are available.

    So, what are your options in that case?
    3M, Target, ...or the local carwash?

    Yeah; no big deal with your buddies.
    But, how much would your buddies pay you to work for them?

    ???
    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !

    I wonder if each of them used Ricky Williams or Onterrio Smith as personal references
    :P
