Can you redo the link?
I keep trying but it wont let me do it
Its just a little pot!! Lol now with mary jane being legal in Washington how will it affect UW recruiting wise..
Man, I'm sure this wont sit well with his dad at all.
We all know "what happens in Washington stays in Washington"
Yes, but this was his THIRD positive test. There are no penalties for the first two per the article.
That stuck out to me too, I believe that is the same policy as the floats. What is SC policy?

With the raping 'SC received from the NCAA, all Trojans should have a medical-grade clearance to partake incessantly, until probation ends.
Athletes have no business getting high.
Everyone says it's just a little pot and look how many people :: cough cough honey badger cough cough :: can't seem to stop themselves from partaking in this non-addictive, harmless substance, that has almost no effect on people even though careers are ended and millions of dollars in contracts/endorsements are lost as a result.
Yeah, okay ...

You bring up an interesting question. I'm waiting for the first test case on this one.
I like your style.

Baxter & Ayles say SC's policy is don't get caught.
It's not sensi's fault society has demonized it. Alcohol and cigs have done more harm to people than marijuana ever has.
And the plant has been GOOD to so many...
Wow I was thinking the exact same thing....only opposite.

My uncle smoked it because the cancer medication he was getting left him without appetite and his head in the clouds. MJ was the only thing that kept him grounded and eating well enough to ease his pain as he began to start down that path of no return. That kind of woke me up when i was hounger because at first I thought weed was just a recreational drug, there's more to it than that.
I have no concrete evidence about the team's policies but I can tell you that if it was legalized, you wouldn't notice a change in the student body. And I'm fairly sure that DPS doesn't care either, because I smell it on campus, walking to class, during the day time. If I could make the rules for the team, I'd say don't get caught, and don't EVER show up to a game practice or team meeting impaired and I don't care what you do.

From what I understand many if not most football players at SC, and probably at D1 schools in general, smoke bud. There's nothing wrong with it. The only way it causes problems, for the most part, is in the ridiculous penalties that are associated with it. Eliminate the absurd consequences and the harm disappears as well.
Unless/until it's legalized where you partake, my advice remains the same: don't get caught.
As a current college student, I can tell you there's a strong correlation (but not necessarily a causation) between smokers and people I know who are lazy idiots. Everyone I know who smokes more than a few times a year also has school issues. Again, not a causation, but at least a correlation. I know one guy who smokes a lot (still) and has recovered his grades, but it still was, by his own admission, part of the problem. I'm a strong advocate of legalization, but I also think that it can and does become a vice for people (the same way alcohol does). And if you let it affect your responsibilities, that's your fault, as with alcohol.
Not to mention, with the massive drop in cigarette smoking over the last few decades, we really don't need something else to prop up our lung cancer numbers. So if people want to use pot, they should try to avoid smoking as a delivery method.
Edit: affect, not effect. Grr.

I'm with you here. Some people are extremely functional, others lose their car keys. The cobwebs aren't good.
