    They take action only when someone has been convicted of a transgression.
    Except with drugs.

    I understand and encourage the strict enforcement of drug-testing as it relates to on-field play.
    Steroids, HGH, "the clear", etc. = bad.

    But if Brian Urlacher wants to smoke a big bowl before a game with the Vikings, I'm handing him my lighter and a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos.

    I think the real issue is the idea of substance abuse, not necessarily the legality of it.
    MJ, just like any other drug (including alcohol) can be abused, and that can lead to both social and athletic problems.
    There is always a question as to where the line should be drawn when calling it "abuse", but the NFL has a pretty strong stance that any detrimental conduct including but not limited to illegal activity is considered abuse.

    Probably the same reason most people would get in trouble if you showed up to work with weed in your system.

    It's illegal.

    Would you hand earl the guy that drives the forklift in the shop a lighter so he can smoke his bowl of refer before he was to do his job?

    I sure wouldn't and poor earl would get fired if they found out he had.

    If Brian Urlacher is high on the football field he is a danger to himself and his teamates. It it that complicated to grasp.

    Police said the bottle was sent to the Miami-Dade County crime lab for analysis. It could be weeks before any decision is made on whether to file charges, said Detective Alvaro Zabaleta.

    "We'll do an analysis and see what it is. There's no sense of urgency to it," he said Thursday.
    So what will happen to ole Ron if it comes back positive?
    Do we know how much was there?

    Considering the type of women that he has been known to hang around with, that black tar substance could be many things that are legal but probably shouldn't be.

    Also as far as illegal actions go at least here in Utah possession of Weed carries a lot bigger penalty then rolling through a stop sign and making an illegal U-turn.

    Does the NFL levy fines and even suspensions for major illegal activities besides Marijuana? Yes it does. Assault, Domestic Violence convictions, DUI......the list goes on.

    So the examples of running a stop sign and doing an illegal U-turn are off base.

    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    No I am commenting (not arguing) on this statement: So is speeding, rolling through stop signs, making unauthorized u-turns and a hundred other things which the NFL does not actively monitor in their players.

    Except with drugs.

    Which was not made by me.

    A dirty drug test is enough to convict in the NFL I guess, and they have the ability to appeal through a legal means.
