Do you want the NFL to just say F the laws; smoke away Josh. You are looking at a freakin PR nightmare.
Time for folks to get with the times...
knowing the road marijuana is heading with this country and it's laws.
with the league already stating they will be more lenient with weed users
It's only a matter of time before weed is no different than alcohol from a legal standpoint....it will be a non-issue
Rumor was that the NFLPA was trying to negotiate the substance abuse policy in regards to weed to be less strict, in exchange for greater penalties for DUI incidents. Which would make perfect sense.
And yeah, they are behind the times, or at least not in front of them. Marijuana has been de-criminalized or legalized in quite a few states at this point.
I don't really think that's what people are saying.
People are saying you should allow it because there isn't any good reason not to.
I almost never smoke, btw.
Weed is illegal in most states, but the penalty for possession in most states is now far less than the penalties for DUIs, assaults, domestic abuse.
In the NFL it is the reverse.
