Keep that pothead away from the NFL players.

The NFL's priorities are WAY out of wack.

They're too concerned with stupid new rules, diversity, agendas, etc. ... instead, they should have a better role model than a drug addict influencing these young men.

Wow, are you serious right now? The guy has gone on and on the past 20 + years about how he smokes marijuana, thinks the poison should be legal, etc.. You don't need to personally know somebody to know they're a drug addict.

Hey, get upset with my comment all you want, but, it's my opinion that an organization like the NFL could find a MUCH role model for these young players. i.e.: Jerry Rice

Understand your reaction/viewpoint. To a certain extent, I share the same.

We diverge on role model though. These aren't 'young men' anymore. These are grown men. What and who they choose to allocate their time to, is their own business. Just my opinion & you are welcome to yours.

Martha Stewart has more felonies than Snoop, and he has made more money than most of us will ever see in our lifetime. People do not become that successful by mistake. Snoop is a very intelligent man. People don't die from smoking marijuana, but people do die from alcohol every day, and it's legal. Withdrawal from alcohol can actually kill you, while the worst thing that happens from smoking marijuana is lethargy and a case of the munchies. 

I don't drink or do drugs, but to say someone is a bad person because they smoke weed is ignorant.

Careful now...There have been numerous automobile accidents where the driver was smoking pot and killed himself or someone else. The other thing to consider is this: Have you ever heard an interview with someone currently on heroin or in re-hab who said "when I was 14, somebody offered me heroin and I tried it." No, most heroin addicts will mention that, at 13 or 14, they started by "smoking a little pot." Don't get me wrong, I know that everybody who starts with "a little pot" does not end up hooked on heroin and living in a card-board box under a bridge. But for some people who involve themselves with marijuana, it is definitely true that a seemingly innoccuous decision leads down a path to destruction. Just sayin....

You're talking to a former heroin addict that has been clean and sober for a long time. It started with alcohol for me. I have been working with alcoholics and addicts for years, and most people who use hard drugs don't smoke pot. And people don't typically go to treatment to stop smoking weed. I do not recommend anyone use anything mind altering substances while driving. Plenty of people get killed in car accidents that are completely sober too. Basically the worst thing that marijuana does is take away people's ambitions. 

You could make an argument culturally, that since it is illegal you have to deal with shady people in order to obtain it, and that lifestyle may introduce people in to other substances. I know many people who don't go to extremes and use it. It really depends on the person. I have abused my right to use any mind altering substances, so I don't partake in using any type of drug or alcohol. I would rather see someone smoke pot rather than drink. The fact that it is illegal is a joke.

As a recovering drug addict who used every drug known to man but has not used for 13yrs. You are absolutely right! It can be a gateway drug for some...but not all...and the consequences can be devastating for that person, their family and society as a whole. I do support medical marijuana and really have no problem with it being legalized for recreational use. But I do know that my 25yr. addiction to drugs, which started with a "little pot" led me to places (including sleeping on floors of crack houses and over 2yrs. spent in rehab.) I would not wish on my worst enemy...not even a SCum fan.

but heres the problem...I also started by smoking pot...and that is where it ended.  There are a lot of people who only smoke(d) pot, and didn't do anything else...

 

Alcohol would also be considered a gateway drug and I can guarantee that all heroin users drank a beer while they were in high school.

The guys that smoke weed and crash usually do because they burned down too far, burnt their fingers, dropped it and crashed trying to pick it back up.  

i know of no one personally that graduated from pot to other drugs.  They only wanted to mellow out and chill all the time.  Many of those were some of the smartest people I know with GPAs above 3.6 or higher. Maybe some do, but most would not.  That said, I have to admit that it is almost like the NFL condones Snoops behavior by letting him be such a presence with players to be.

Ohhhh, ok, I see .... because it's the year 2014 - marijuana is automatically okay. Riiiight.

It is in fact more toxic than a cigarette. Yes, marijuana does create some benefit to certain health issues, (some asthmatics), but is still toxic:

I don't expect this to change your mind, but hear me out.  The fact that it's illegal doesn't deter everyone who wishes to try it. Keeping it illegal makes criminals out of otherwise law abiding citizens.  The tax dollars used to police, incarcerate, eradicate (unsuccessfully, I might add) could be used to fight much greater threats to society.  The fact that it's illegal makes it easier for those impressionable youth you mentioned to obtain it.  As a 16-18 year old, it was easier to get than cigarettes.  As an 18-21 year old, it was easier to get than alcohol.  And if I so wish, I could have it delivered to my front door.  I can't get a bottle of Jameson delivered to my house.  Trust me, I've tried.  

Legalizing it allows it to become taxable, creating revenue for the state.  Releasing those incarcerated for possession saves resources to incarcerate actual, real-life criminals.  Which also means cops can go about their day trying to solve/stop actual, real-life criminals.  Will a few extra kids try it simply because it's legal status is changed?  Probably.  But is stopping a few hundred (thousand?) kids from smoking pot really worth the resources we go to to stop it?  I don't think it is.

Like I said, I don't think this will change your opinion, but I do think there's a benefit to society to legalize it.

For me, it is all about respecting everyone's God-given rights in this country, especially liberty.  You can have whatever you want, but you must ALWAYS accept the responsibility that goes along with.  Less and less of society is excepting that responsibility. 

For example, I value my liberty to decide with whom I choose to associate, including during the period where I produce something of value to others (= working for pay).  I am willing to bet the majority on this fine sports blog site do not believe the same -- they call it "discrimination" and "intolerant."  If I have a business providing goods/services, maybe I believe people that exhibit less drive and eagerness need not be in my employ.

As a person who has spent over 2 years of my life in rehabilitation facilities where they make you take approximately 10 hours a day of classes on everything from how you feel emotionally while on or off of drugs to studying the clinical physical effects of almost all drugs such as marijuana and cigarettes, I can tell you for a fact that marijuana is more toxic to the human body than cigarettes.

Don't think I am one of those who is against the use of marijuana for medical purposes or am against legalizing marijuana because I am not. But on this point the man is absolutely correct.

Again as a recovering addict who has also worked with recovering addicts (alcohol is a drug to) for the last decade the poster is right that marijuana can be a gateway drug for some, including me. While in my experience alcohol would be the predominant "gateway drug" I would put marijuana second. I think some people...if they looked up the information...would be stunned by the number of using addicts (and again alcohol is a drug) and recovering addicts there are in this country. Alcoholics Anonymous claims a membership of over 10 million people in the U.S. alone (some put it closer to 20 million). Not to mention N.A. (narcotics anonymous) C.A. (cocaine anonymous) M.A. (marijuana anonymous) and other groups. I would venture to say that few people in the U.S. do not know a using addict or a recovering addict. Be it at work, as friends, or in their family. Whether they realize it or not.

 

Again I am not against medical marijuana nor the legalization for recreational use of marijuana. For most it is fine but for a segment of the population it can devastate their lives by leading to harder drugs because they are "chasing that high" that they can no longer get from marijuana so they try harder drugs. Unfortunately I know this from personal experience and from what I see every day.

I agree. I would even go as far as saying legalize marijuana and outlaw alcohol (if it was one or the other). Alcohol is much more destructive to individuals and to society as a whole than marijuana and has none of the health benifits. And scientific data (# of related deaths, # of related crimes, # of related health issues) proves it.

Your opinion yes. But he is not a drug addict. Here in Marion, Ohio we have drug addicts. We have an epidemic here. We have people here dying every day to heroin. Every day. Thats terrible yes but they are drug addicts. There are many doctors that use marijuana for medical use. You dont see people die over smoking marijuana do you. Again it is your opinion and you are entitled to it as am I. You would be very supprised who does smoke it and still live very successful lives. But I would definitely not call snoop dog a drug addict for smoking marijuana. These poor folks here in Marion thats dying left and right over heroin are drug addicts.

Johnny-Shane_Utah-Falco's picture

Yes, you are right. The amount of young people dying over that hiiiighly-addictive heroin is sad. It is very alarming.

But, I will say this: I bet 99% of heroin users started with marijuana as their first drug. And, maybe a very low percent of hard drug users (coke, heroin, meth, etc.) just started doing coke, heroin, meth, etc. ... maybe like 2 out of 100 people. But, we know the majority started out with "it's just pot".

THAT is why it is sooo dangerous to say marijuana is okay to the country. For some, it may be...but others who may have a body chemistry that is addictive, it is MUCH to dangerous to get them started. The best policy is no drugs at all. Which is why I'm appalled that some supposed leader(s) would say it's "just a bad habit". No way.

Johnny-Shane_Utah-Falco's picture

Joey, consider yourself lucky and blessed. You have (I hope) not been addicted to other drugs. I wouldn't necessarily brag about it, it's not good karma.

But, I would just say --- consider yourself lucky.

I have a cousin who is a heroin addict, and he started out smoking pot in high school. Now he steals off of his parents for drugs. It's sad, really. The sadder part is none of us would be shocked to go into his room one day, and find him dead at his young age.

I've also had friends from high school who have OD'd or ruined the lives of those around them (and their own lives). I had a friend in high school who played running back for the football team. His parents were nice, but hippies from the 70s. They let him go to concerts and told him it was okay to smoke pot. They basically did everything but buy it for him...they encouraged it every step of the way. He was a smart kid, too. After high school, he started trying other drugs...became addicted to oxi pills, then escalated to heroin. He was dead at the age of 23, sadly.

 I've had 3 other classmates die young of drugs, and they all had something in common they too started out with pot. That's why I say gateway drug. It's been a sad but true living fact in my life experiences. I know for some reason it may seem controversial for the pro-pot people...but I very much disagree.

Yes, pot may be just a good time for you, but that does not mean that it is a good idea to legalize it, it's just not worth the risk. We can not deny that in general, it is not a good idea. Hence my opposition to it on a national and state level.

I think alcohol is bad. A little red wine with a meal in moderation is good for you. But, obviously, drinking 5 nights a week will kill you.

Alcohol is no doubt addictive, but drinking isn't going to lead you to the "next high", which is what many drug users are always trying to chase.

That's why marijuana so dangerous. Smoke pot, it's cool, but after awhile you want to get that "next high". Next thing you know --- it's coke, then heroin, then death. And studies show that heroin is sooo addictive.

Wouldn't alcohol be the gateway drug then?  I can't think of a huge amount of people who smoked weed before they have a sip of beer.  I think that anyone who is truly into the feeling of a changed mental state from psychoactive drugs, will always keep looking for something that is more fun, intense, whatever.  They might not become addicts, but they will experiment with other things and who gives two shits if they do?  Alcohol is still the most dangerous drug that I have ever done.  I have done more, and I see other people do more, stupid, violent, out of control things on booze than anything else.  In terms of affecting judgement, there is nothing worse than beer, the same could be said for coordination and impulse control.

You have to be kidding me.  Yeah, heroin is really addictive but the gateway to H starts with kids popping prescription pills and drinking not smoking ganja. 

I've been in and around cannabis culture for the past 25+ years starting as an occasional teenage smoker with a 4.0 GPA, became a college student who woke up to bong hits and graduated with honors in 3 years.  As a young man I moved to Northern California, worked in the biz, saw more ganja than most people can imagine and now at 42 I enjoy a puff in much the same way I enjoy a glass of red wine.  A few times a month I blaze a joint while I watch the sunset into the pacific.  When I hit about 26 the idea of being stoned all day became a pain in the butt so I decided to back off.  It didn't hurt me to slow down, I wasn't chasing a dragon looking for a buzz.   

At no point was I physically addicted to cannabis.  At no point did I think, wow if I get this high from pot I would love heroin.  Truth is, I have passed up cocaine and heroin as a rule my entire life despite countless chances to imbibe both.  The time I was most tempted to do coke I was drunk. 

The fear mongering is laughable.  I've met countless functioning alcoholics and some really hard core drunks (interestingly,  heavy drinkers rarely smoke pot.)  They are far worse off in life than some of the people I know who smoke 98% THC hash oil 24/7. 

Alcohol is a much greater menace than cannabis.  What is funny is the cases of alcoholism, spousal abuse, drunk driving and alcohol related deaths hit an all-time high during prohibition.

Actually - most drug users' first illegal drug is either cigarettes or alchohol when they're under 18.

Pot is common because it's the safest illegal drug out there, and the one with the least stigma. Half of the country has smoked it. It's so common that I'd be amazed if anyone who was on the track to trying heroin managed to try heroin before they tried. The gateway drug argument has no standing when the mechanisms of addiction are entirely different.

What makes the "gateway drug" argument seem compelling is the fact that you are stepping over a line in terms of legality and social acceptance. If you're willing to do it for one drug, why not another? It has zero to do with the chemical effects of pot.

Also I think the worst of the "gateway drugs" is alcohol. Alcohol is way worse as it is proven scientificly that it attacks the same part of the brain as heoin. And how many deaths are caused by drinking compared to deaths caused by smoking marijuana. Big diffence in #s isn't there. I dont smoke it nor do i drink and i am raising my 3 chilren (16, 13 and 10) the same way. I do know many people who smoke who are lawyers, brokers and doctors. They have made a pretty good life for themselves and yet they are addicts right????? They are NOT addicts. Also this is my opinion in which I am entitled to as well. But Shane there are good and bad to almost everything but to just call people drug addicts who smoke marijuana, I just think that is wrong. Thats all

Alcohol is not a great drug, either. I agree. And alcoholics die a slower death many times. And alcohol-related accidents are a parent's worst nightmare. Very tragic.

It's just the heroin cycle where I live...it is vicious. And all of the heroin deaths have the same denominator: they started out smoking pot.

Like I said, maye it's fine for some people....but I wouldn't risk saying it's "okay", and legalizing it. Maybe on this board it's okay for a guy to say: "Hey, look at me, I smoke pot reguarly and I'm still successful...etc." But, my point is on a broader level: it's a horrible idea to minimize pot as just a "bad habit" or to make it not a big deal. The risk far outweighs any reward.

You are right. There is a big difference between a recreational user and an addict. I know many recreational users of alcohol and marijuana and they lead healthy productive lives. The problem is a person never knows when they MIGHT cross the line between recreational user and addict. Some experts believe it is genetic, while others believe it is akin to a personality disorder, while the population as a whole would categorize it as a personal weakness of flaw (which it is not). I am fine with legalizing it but American society must be ready for the consequences of more drug addicts (which cost a lot of health services dollars) if they do, but I also believe legalizing it (at a reasonable price) would lower crime rates and free up large sums of law enforcement dollars to go to fight other types of crime .

Can you site your source? Alcohol related deaths may have increased in the short term because of "bad" alcohol...blindness too. But I would really like to see the data that shows "alcoholism increased dramatically". This is the best I could find and it is inconclusive because of many factors:

Yeah ignorant. Take it from a person who is an epileptic and really the only thing that helps is marijuana. Not the bull shit drugs doctors prescribe.  You call it toxins. I call it medicine.

Medically speaking, marijuana can indeed do long-term damage.

Regularly consuming ammonia and hydrogen cyanide is not good for one's long-term health. They are toxic.

But, you're missing my point. You're too emotional.

I concede that marijuana may temporarily help certain people with some health conditions. But, but, but...my point is that it's not a good precedent to legalize the drug. Ask yourself: would you want your kids to use marijuana? Would you be ok with that? Have you considered the gateway factor involved with the slippery slope that is trying marijuana? Again, not worth the risk.

 I'm making fun of your ignorant view point. We should ban alcohol because it's a gateway drug and we don't need any more lazy alcoholics...oh wait we all know how that went. You are stuck on this idea that Weed is destroying the world. That is how you come off, when there are more positives than negatives. People who go on to do harder drugs also drank alcohol and smoked cigarettes. The addicts are predisposed to drug use in general. There is a difference between correlation and causation.

I tend to respect everyones opinion until it comes to the use of "gateway drug". just about everything has a beginning stage and escalation and therefore can be somehow linked to other things. linking marijuana use to other drugs is like linking masturbation to rape. im sure a lot of rapists masturbated at some point so it must lead to rape right? yes that means everyone on here is a future rapist even including johnny-shane........

You're reaching. And LSJ is all in a tizzy over my comments.

But, believe it or not --- I was not anti-pot when I was younger. I really didn't care, and if someone would've asked me if I think it should be legal - I would've probably said,  "Yeah, what the heck...who cares."

That all changed when I saw the devastating trickle-up affect drugs had on my friends and family member. It's just heart-breaking. I'm not by any means a big gov't. guy, I'm more Libertarian, Except when it comes to the drug issue. The gov't. should not step in and legalize, they should keep it illegal. It's just too risky and a terrible slippery slope. Having said that, I understand the need for medical marijuana for cancer patients, etc. .... but legalizing it for recreational use and further opening the door to drug abuse is not wise.

Life is toxic and terminal. 

Moderation is the key to balance....

Medical cannabis can be vaporized to minimize the less healthy  burning of plant matter, concentrated to reduce the amount needed to achieve the effects and remove many of the non-active ingredients, extracted into fatty oils and eaten.

Smoking blunts and hog-leg joints is not healthy, there are countless alternatives for ingestion that eliminate the by-products of burning plant matter.

I believed the "marijuana is bad because it leads to harder drugs and drug addiction" argument was stupid in middle school, hearing adults throw it around at other adults is just baffling.  Many people can smoke and be successful and NOT get into more dangerous extracurriculars, and some cant.  There's a different common denominator, and it comes from the mind.

I'm really shocked people are getting killed on this site for arguing against illegal drugs. Yes, there are hundreds of productive people who smoke pot, but don't jump all over somebody unless you know their personal history with the drug. There are also hundreds of people who have ruined their lives due to drugs.

I don't think anyones getting killed for being against the legalization of marijuana, but the people that are getting killed are the mindless robots that want to cite non-scientifically supported "facts" as the basis for arguments.  

Personally Im not a fan but id love to see it legalized and taxed just because of the influx of money it would provide failing governments and school districts while simultaneously having the benefit of being able to cause more than a few vacancies in prisons across the country

Qujo's picture

Why? So we can create more terrible inner city school districts where drugs are very prevalent? Or this shit hole of a government that spends more money for shitty programs and more pork than ever. Yes, let's legalize one more enabler so we can give the govt more money to throw at more bad programs. Especially the programs needed to support the ever growing drug ( and alcohol) prevention. Oh and while we are at it, more cops to bust the DWI's for drug use. That problem will grow exponentially as it is bad enough for the alcohol DWI's. 

I don't smoke pot. But I don't have anything against it, other than the impact on society is bigger than the people who want it legalized suggest. They keep arguing it against alcohol, but two wrongs STILL do not make a right. But they are the beneficiaries of legalized pot so they forget that common thought process.

My disclaimer: I don’t agree with legalizing recreational use of any drug and, even though I drink on occasion, I would not be opposed to making alcohol and tobacco illegal too. 
I’ve read through all of the posts and it’s sad to see how Johnny-Shane_Ut’s initial opinion that Snoop shouldn’t be a role model to these young soon-to-be NFLers was turned by some into an opportunity to summarily dismiss him with ad hominem vitriol.  He’s expressing an opinion and even if some folks disagree with his opinion and/or believe his rationale is based on false premises (he’s just “trolling,” “…ridiculous,” “…delusional,” “ignorant,” etc.), he’s (and all of us are) entitled to express our opinions.  Attacking an individual because you believe (or know) the other person’s opinion is false, is wrong and it’s people like that who should be barred from posting anything on social media.  I commend those of you who, while disagreeing with the “anti-marijuana” or “anti-drug” side have done so respectfully.
I’m a Buckeye grad who has lived in Colorado for nearly seven years.  Medical marijuana may have medicinal uses (I have no facts to argue for or against that claim – although, I’m seeing many parents re-locate to Colorado just so they can provide medical marijuana to their child, suffering from epilepsy.  I hope they find relief) but legal medical marijuana and recreational use are not the same.  Sure, you can argue for the legalization of marijuana since it produces tax revenue (projected to be around $600M in Colorado over the next year) or that it will free up law enforcement or reduce prison populations.  If that’s the case, then I’m all for legalizing any drug.  Just think of the tax dollars generated and cartel/gangs that will have nothing to keep them solvent if meth, heroin, etc. are legalized.  I could give a rat’s ass if heroin addicts OD, as long as we keep a good tax revenue stream.  If “pro-marijuana” folks are entitled to live out their American dream, why can’t heroin addicts?
Some may argue marijuana’s therapeutic (non-medicinal) side effects outweigh any negatives.  There are studies that show marijuana is bad for individuals…other studies say otherwise.  Whichever side of the argument you’re on, you have ammunition for and against your position.  I have no empirical evidence but when I saw a local TV interview of Tommy Chong in Pueblo, Colorado when the new recreational legalization took place on January 1st (he was there to promote it), I couldn’t help but say to myself: “Wow, that guy is burnt out.”  I could see it in his face and in his speech.  Sure, that could be attributed to his age or other physical/medical issues – again, this was just my observation. 
In Colorado, I have already witnessed some problems with legalization.  After the state constitutional amendment passed in 2012, I could smell marijuana at various locations from individuals who were smoking it in public (even though it’s still illegal to smoke it in public).  I do not want my children exposed to it but I feel very confident in my children to make, what I believe, are  smart decisions to stay away from drugs.  Two of them are in college and I know they don’t use drugs (trust me, I know).  Also, there is no Colorado state law to implement what blood level of THC is too high for driving under the influence charges.  A couple of months ago a Colorado law enforcement vehicle was rear-ended by a car driven by an individual who was high on marijuana and no other drug.  So, just like alcohol, does the individual “right” to consume recreational marijuana in Colorado/Washington outweigh the risks to others when intoxicated individuals operate automobiles or other potentially dangerous things?     
Finally, so that you all understand the reasons why I feel this way (again, this is my opinion), (1) my dad nearly died of cancer caused by his cigarette use; (2) my wife battled opioid addiction for nearly seven years; (3) I currently live with chronic back pain (had two-level lumbar fusion) and use a mixture of prescription medication (opioid analgesics, synthetic analgesics and benzodiazepines) so that I don’t take the same drugs in consecutive days -- to avoid addiction.  I’ll probably need to take these medications for the rest of my life, but they are effective.  Hey, anything I can do to keep from deploying to Iraq or Afghanistan again after 20+ years on active duty, I’ll do it!
Stay classy and Go Bucks!!!

Thank you HOMEY, You're spot on.

It's troubling that my differing opinion would be called trolling. This speaks volumes about anybody (& the direction of this country) who calls my opposition to marijuana for recreational use trolling, and the personal attacks too.

logamaniac's picture

I understand that you've stated your opinion I would just like to add that there is no scientific evidence linking marijuana with a lowered quality of life in relation to the other drugs you've listed here.  Science has actually proven that there's no physical addiction to it as well.

 

Its for people like JSU that marijuana is even listed as a schedule 1 narcotic, even a person with a rational mind that might not be a fan of it would probably agree it doesn't belong with the likes of heroin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD),  3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (ecstasy), methaqualone, and peyote or be considered more dangerous than meth.

 

Also Ill be clear and state that Im not a personal fan of marijuana but at the same time its not what people like JSU make it out to be either.

Homey,

I don't live in a MaryJane state, but just 25 miles from the WA border so I really like your post and I agree with it!  Yet here's the irony:

Washington residents cross the Spokane river and flood Stateline, ID to buy WAY cheaper cigarettes.  Washington has the highest cigarette tax in the country.  Nicotine, highly addictive, is why the truck-stop stores which ARE Stateline are 50% cigs sales and meh, you can get a slurpee for the drive home.   For awhile, WA police were stopping motorists they saw buying cartons and cartons of cigs in Idaho.  A judge stopped that.

Now Idaho police have ramped up the PR machine warning residents here that if you bring any wacky-toe-back-ee over here they will have no sense of humor, you will be arrested.  Lot's O' Mormons here particularly south (Boise), so I don't see a shift anytime soon. 

So we have the cig police against the pot police.      Cue the Benny Hill music???????
