Default Ryan Clark: NFL players going to use pot

Ryan Clark confirms the obvious

Ryan Clark says NFL players, including some of his teammates with the Pittsburgh Steelers, turn to smoking marijuana for a variety of reasons, especially as a means to relieve pain and manage stress...

"I know guys on my team who smoke," Clark said. "And it's not a situation where you think, 'Oh, these are guys trying to be cool.' These are guys who want to do it recreationally.

"A lot of it is stress relief. A lot of it is pain and medication. Guys feel like, 'If I can do this, it keeps me away from maybe Vicodin, it keeps me away from pain prescription drugs and things that guys get addicted to.' Guys look at this as a more natural way to heal themselves, to stress relieve and also to medicate themselves for pain. Guys are still going to do it."

Clark also agreed with recent comments by New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who suggested the league is waging a lost cause in banning the substance, while also saying the league's testing system isn't all that effective.

"It's 100 percent true. They're fighting a losing battle. The testing isn't stringent," Clark said. "There is one random test during OTAs and minicamps during the offseason, and everybody will be tested early in training camp. After that, there are no more tests. So guys understand the ways to get around failing a drug test."

In addition to confirming NFL players smoke pot, Clark's observations on the sieve like drug testing confirms how moronic players such as Santonio Holmes have to be to flunk multiple drug tests for marijuana

Very good point. "Hey it's okay if you get addicted to all these hard drugs and alcohol, but marijuana is straight from the devil".

I don't smoke pot. I tried it a few times but hated the way it made me feel. With that said it boggles my mind that itsiillegal for these players yet the majority of them are prescribed oxycontin, morphine, vicodine and Percocet throughout their careers. Those are addictive drugs that destroy lives and families. You never see people robbing banks and knocking over liqueur stores to get money to buy more weed. I don't understand the reasoning

I agree completely. I don't smoke, nor do I suggest anybody pick it up. But I don't understand why it's illegal.

I think because it is considered the "gateway" drug. Especially with young people.
It is considered the first and start of drugs use of all kind. Including alcohol.
I think that is why it is not legal.
