    They're really trying to milk a story out of nothing here, even the coaches in the story say it's overblown. People who try to make marijuana into a "character issue" are myopic. Drinking is just as bad, if not worse.

    How many people have died of alcohol poisoning? Millions.

    How many people have died of a marijuana overdose? Zero, in all of recorded human history.

    I just think it's hypocritical for the press/government/nfl to vilify someone who smokes pot. I mean, the OL was probably out getting drunk and taking advantage of freshmen girls... while Harvin was watching Wizard of Oz with Dark Side of the Moon.

    The pot smokers would offer up a better defense....


    ...but they're a bit too mellow right now, and are in search of some munchables...

    Seriously, marijuana legalization has a few downsides. That said, I agree with C Mac (that's twice in recent days...something is seriously wrong here) that there are worse evils in alcohol than in pot. There are worse evils in cigarettes too. It's pure hypocrisy that keeps Marijuana illegal while booze and cigarettes are legal.

    And I also agree that this story is pure sensationalism. They have nothing to talk about, so they drudge up irrelevant BS and try and get people fired up. Pure crap.

    Completely. Irrelevant BS from OVER 3 YEARS AGO!

    Not just in sports journalism, but I feel sad for journalism everywhere nowadays. It's all sensationalist garbage that hasn't been researched.
