    According to reports by the WWL, Calvin Johnson, Amobi Okoye and Gaines Adams have admitted they've used marijuana while in school. There's a shocker! What next, fraternities and sororities host massive parties with BEER? Seriously people, even though haven't used it and not a big fan (used once, didn't feel anything, smelled bad), I equate pot to a smoke-able form of booze. Unless you've a Newton-sized amount in your possession, it really shouldn't be a big deal. Hell, the government should legalize it, then tax the shit out of it.

    EDIT: Apparently, they only used it once and early on. Didn't mean to mislead people into thinking we had a trifecta of Ricky Williams-wannabes going in the Top 10.

    So are these guys dumb for admitting it? Should they be lauded?

    I think no one should give a shit. Maybe give them an approving nod, acknowledging that fact that they admitted it before it really comes back to haunt them. With what happend to Pacman Jones and the Cincinnattica Bengals, they don't want any of Goodall's heavies coming down on them.

    Rome just had a classic Rome line: Everyone in college gets blunted.

    This will not end well ... but I don't care.

    Smoking that pot could have gotten them in trouble with the law. But you want to buy a gun? No problem, man.

    One mostly kills Doritos, and that's all it would kill if it was legal. One kills people because it is legal.

    Sorry, I couldn't resist. And, not that it matters, but I don't smoke pot. It's not worth losing my job or going to jail with all those other non-violent offenders.

    This will hurt Calvin Johnson.


    EDIT: You made it seem as if they smoked it consistenly. They tried it once early in their college years(or at least, that's what they said).

    Shit, maybe I should start smoking pot again. NFL contract, baby.
