So Bell and Blount (thank goodness his name wasn't Meth) were busted for weed.

I favor legalizing pot, but while (and where) it's still illegal, and as long as it's still against the rules, they deserve whatever they get.

I am curious how the community here feels about legalizing it, and more specifically about whether the NFL should stop testing for it, as it is neither performance enhancing nor illegal everywhere the NFL plays.

I think the NFL is very cognizant of public perception, but I think public perception of casual pot use is starting to change. I do not buy the gateway issue...all the serious drug users I have ever known got started with beer, not pot...and I think it's a little soon to judge the long term effects, but I would think guys who get hit like a car accident 20 times a game could probably stand a little relief.

For well over a decade I've said to legalize prostitution and weed, tax the hell out of it and finance our deficit.

so according to you something that is an above average pain reliever does not enhance performance? I don't know the entire list of pain relievers or their status in the NFL but I am sure there are many that are banned at least without medical authorization. Others that are banned even if it was prescribed by a doctor.

Hey now I live in Steeler country and those guys are getting ripped by the media bigtime. I mean poor Bell, he gets pulled offer and gets nailed for having 240 lbs of Blount in the car lol. But he was also arrested for DUI. But the main person to blame is Mike Tomlin (Head Coach), he told those 2 that they needed to get more involved in the passing game and they just misunderstood what he meant. Puff Puff Pass #-o
thanks Post received 2 applause.

Can't wait to hear what our Fox News watching right wing dings have to say on this one. Of course marijuana should be legal. It is a Mother Earth erb. When I pack it in and cash out, I'm heading for a beach with many big bags.

Someone on ESPN said the two of them should have turned back, punched the woman so they could get a lighter sentence.

Porforis (29-Nov) : Or they just don't want to beat their bodies to hell to get a bunch of money and not having stuff around to enjoy with said money
Cheesey (29-Nov) : Well, i guess it just shows who thinks their football job is less important then going out to party.
Zero2Cool (29-Nov) : Green Bay is a smaller town, and it's cold as crap here.
Zero2Cool (29-Nov) : What I've heard and read, more likely true than we care to admit.
hardrocker950 (29-Nov) : If that is true... they don't know what is good for them hehe
Zero2Cool (29-Nov) : That was from Brady Poppinga.
