    Is the NFL ready to embrace "medical marijuana", to justify the already high usage among its players?

    This does not seem to fit into your theory that marijuana smokers are infrequently successful in life.

    They have incredible physical attributes. These attributes are apparent early to others, who push them, and depend on them.

    I know you're being sarcastic, but if we're talking short-term vs. long-term ...
