Former NFL Player Smoked Marijuana before Games


The use of marijuana by NFL players as an aid to deal with the pain they go through has been in the news for the past couple of years as players and former players are asking the league to review it drug policy. A few days ago, Eben Britton, who played in the NFL for six season, recently said in an interview that he was at his best during games when he was high.

In the interview, Britton said the NFL games he played in when he was stoned were the best games of his career. Britton, who played for the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Chicago Bears during his career, said that Cannabis cements his surroundings. He added that he has heard people say they are pretty much useless when they are stoned, but the drug has the opposite effect on him.

Britton also said in the interview that he believes anywhere from 50 to 75 percent of NFL players use marijuana. Despite the high estimate of players using, not too many get busted for the use of the drug because the NFL doesn’t test for it as much as they do for performance enhancing drugs.

According to reports, the NFL tests for recreational drugs like marijuana once a season, and after the tests are over, players go back to using it. The league probably isn’t as strict on the testing because it isn’t a performance enhancer, but those who have been caught have been dealt with by the league.

Former Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams retired from the league after multiple failed tests, Cleveland’s Josh Gordon was suspended for a year for multiple failed tests, and Britton was also suspended for the entire 2015 season for multiple failed tests.

In recent years, the attitude towards the use of marijuana has been changing. Multiple states have made the use of marijuana legal, which has spurred some former NFL players to petition the league to allow its use as an alternative to the painkillers they get from team medical staff. The players argue that marijuana is a safer alternative and isn’t as addictive as the painkillers.

Former Baltimore Ravens player Eugene Monroe pledged $80,000 to study the effect of marijuana use by NFL players to try to reduce their use of addictive opioids and anti-inflammatory drugs they receive from teams to help them deal with their pain.

At the time, Monroe said there was enough evidence that suggest that marijuana use is safer than opioids and other drugs NFL players take for their pain. It has also been suggested that marijuana can help with concussions, making it something the NFL seriously has to look into.

In addition to the medical benefits, Britton said marijuana has other positive social uses. According to the former player, marijuana helped him socialize with teammates. Britton said that after practice, a couple of players will meet up at one of the players’ homes and smoke marijuana. During those sessions, the players didn’t talk about football, they just hung out and had a good time getting to know each other better.

Despite the potential benefits of using marijuana for pain, it doesn’t look like the NFL will change its stance anytime soon.

(San Francisco, CA) WeedGear.com — A recently launched review and community participation website has announced that fictional character Towelie, famous for his role on South Park, has raised enough virtual currency through online pimping services to invest his $1 Billion internet dollars in becoming the web’s next marijuana mogul.

New Pot Laws May Save/Destroy Education System in America


After seeing how much money Colorado made in just the first week of implementing its law allowing the use of recreational marijuana, New Hampshire is hurrying through legislation of its own with a vote scheduled today.

With a hefty 25% state tax, coupled with the usual 2.9% state sales tax on recreational marijuana, Colorado is finally looking at enough money to re-vamp its entire educational system. Washington state will follow later this year, and now several other states are hurrying through legislation to legalize recreational marijuana to attain the same goal.

The latest to vote on making recreational marijuana legal in their state is New Hampshire. A hastily put-together bill is scheduled to take place today, where it is expected to eke by, but still pass. At that point, New Hampshire will be the third state to make up to an ounce of recreational marijuana legal to possess.

That is, unless the Governor of New Hampshire makes good on her promise. Governor Maggie Hassan has vowed to veto the bill if it passes the Senate and House. New Hampshire may be in for a long legal battle as a goodly portion of the citizens of New Hampshire see a way out of educational poverty for their state. Read the full story

Washingtonian Excited for Perils of Living in a Stoner State


Recently two states legalized the recreational use of marijuana: Colorado and my state, Washington. In full disclosure, even though, like Bill Clinton, I have never personally tried pot, I voted for passage of this law.

And I want to apologize for my decision. I had no idea that legalizing weed would unleash a tidal wave of chaos, undermining the social contract of this once great state.

For years, my parents, my minister and my 7th grade science teacher, Mr. Curtis, warned me about the dangers of marijuana. The critically acclaimed 1936 documentary film Reefer Madness proved conclusively that even a single puff of marijuana could lead to a life of heroin addiction, crime and attempting to French kiss nuns during mass.

What Is Wrong With This Picture from Afghanistan?


Since the beginning of the Afghan war, the coalition forces have been having a hard time training and getting the loyalty of the Afghan police and soldiers they were training to fight the Taliban and Al Queda.

“Why?” so many drill instructors, trainers, Generals and other Allied personnel have asked themselves and their superiors over and over again.

This is important especially when the people you are training might turn around their guns and take their bullets out on you instead of the Taliban; or because they ARE the Taliban. Read the full story
