    NFL going up in smoke?



    pot_football_576.jpg

    Lomas Brown shared with the Detroit News that 50% of the players in the NFL smoke pot.

    If true, Iím not surprised. Actually Iím surprised more donít.

    NFL players have no choice but to deal with pain. You often hear analysts say how healthy teams are oftentimes the best teams. But health in the case of the NFL is relative. No teams are healthy. Some may be less injured than others but thereís a reason the game looks faster in September than it does in January. The wear and tear hasnít set in yet.

    So how do the players manage pain?

    Ibuprofen?

    Vicodin?

    Clearly there are risks with those, just ask Alonzo Mourning and Brett Favre.

    Relatively speaking, could it be that marijuana is less harmful?

    I don't think this should surprise anyone.

    I would like to point out that the guy was sharing this with the Detroit News and correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the Lions have 3 guys get busted for possession since January or something?

    I've always maintained that weed is the NFL's dirty little secret.

    There is a reason they test for weed only once and it's an announced test.

    It would be a losing battle and it would cause far too many black smudges in the NFL if they did multiple random piss tests.

    Agreed.

    It should be legalized but I suppose that's for another thread in an another area of the boards.

    Great article, Tony.

    I'm surprised that rich guys like that don't go for more expensive drugs like cocaine.

    Because cocaine is highly addictive and doesn't really solve your pain problem.

    They test for all illegal non-performance enhancing drugs at the same time in that same test. It's not like they are singling out pot vs anything else.

    Yea, but it is announced.

    Which is why it's even more of a head-slapper when a guy fails the test.

    Let's hope common sense prevails and that they figured out this drug would make them poor in a heartbeat

    I think we'd all be surprised if we knew how many of our colleagues smoked weed. It's very common

    You can't get rid of PED's the way you can pot.

    You do a cycle or two of steroids or use HGH for even a month, and the testosterone levels will remain high for months. You can get rid of traces of weed with 30 days and a ton of Gatoraide.

    And as wicked pointed out, the weed test is announced.

    PED testing is a blood test, where the announced weed test is urine, so while they may do the testing at the same time, it's not the same kind of test.
