If I was in charge of the league every drug would be tested. Last time I checked, a federal/state law is still above an NFL rule or test and weed is still illegal so if you smoke it, your suspended without pay, but that's my IMO.

So kids in college, or kids in general smoke weed? Wow, file that under "C" for curveball. Not!

I don't understand this nation's preoccupation with pot and it's assumptions about the drug.

Of all the drugs out there, pot is the least destructive and it's a disgusting situation when people who don't know what the hell they are talking about that keep this subtle, harmless drug out of the hands of people dealing with terminal illnesses that would help with their suffering.

Alcohol, ironically, is so much more destructive and is the cause of so many more deaths in our country then pot will ever be and yet it's legal.

Sorry, don't mean to offend anybody, but if I had a doobie accessible to me right now, I'd be lighting up.

And I know I wouldn't be hurting myself or anyone else in the process!

Alcohol is more destructive = yes
'Weed' is more addictive = yes
Is it best to live life without either one = yes
Are more people addicted to prescription drugs = yes
drugs, drugs, drugs....

How is weed more addictive? You don't even have withdrawal symptoms when you quit smoking it, let alone possibly die from DT's (like you can when trying to quit drinking).

I'll admit, I used to smoke when I was younger...but damn, I never woke up in the morning sweating and shaking thinking about where to get my next toke lol.

I think the longer you drink alcohol the more likely you'll get addicted. Weed can get you addicted in 3 months if you use it regularly... But alcohol is harder to shake once your addicted than weed is.....

Based off of what studies?

I never had trouble quiting, and I smoked on and off through high school and college. It was just a kid thing we used to do when hanging out, and when we grew up, we quit lol. Like I said, I never woke up in the morning sweating and shaking wondering where my next fix was coming from, and I smoked a lot longer than 3 months.
