What does "white" dude, have to do with the nature of this event? Because someone of any race is perceived as being bad, in general, is relevant? A racist mentality, strikes again.
Not really... I was just in a joking mood and took a few talking points from other comments further back in the thread and mixed it in with some Seinfeld meets Simpsons rant and Dennis Miller logic and made a post with nothing aimed at anybody.

And for the record I'm a middle aged white male with pretty much zero political give a crap or leanings on social issues. I leave all that to other people. I just try to live by the golden rule as cliche' and altruistic as that sounds.

No different than alcohol being legal and having to conform to a company policy that prohibits alcohol at your place of work, or in your system, of any amount. The argument about making marijuana legal, has nothing to do with someone violating a company policy, or a contract. They can make marijuana legal throughout the country, but just like alcohol, companies etc., are still going to have rules where an employee cannot have it on them, or in their system at their place of work. If you get high on the weekend; so be it. But it you were to get a random on Monday morning, oh well. Your loss.

Moral of the story. You know the rules. You know the consequences. Be smart and abide. If not, you run the risk of ruining a good thing for yourself. Pretty simple. "Stay in your lane, bro".
Completely misssd the point. What I am saying is that the playing field is uneven right now. A person playing in Denver currently does not have to worry about being caught via an arrest.

Yes, in both cases, a company policy is being violated, but with the current rules, one player has to worry about being caught by the police or by a drug test while another player only has to worry about the drug test part.

Something needs to be figured out here.

There's this thing called the Earhart Expressway, which is mostly empty. This is New Orleans not Houston.
U mean the same Earhart expressway that joe Morgan was caught sleeping in his car that got him hit with a dwi?
Nothing wrong with the man living next to work. Just got to make better choices and have a dr note :)

just saying, I moved out to California and was involved in a car accident that messed up my back and neck. Recently I've been using cannibus cbd oil which activates when combined with THC and have been feeling the best I've been in a long time which I do not take for granted. After almost a year and a half of using prescription strength Ibuprofen and other prescription pain killers, I ended up with bleeding stomach ulcer on New Year's Day at 1 am in the morning. Not a cool experience at all and takes strong discipline and time to recover from. The cbd oil that I am taking now doesn't have side affects that affect me negatively. Cbd can be taken individually but doesn't have the same effects without the combination of THC. By the way, the package contained oils and edibles, etc. I can totally understand why a player that puts there body through such a physical contact would attempt to heal using plants instead of pharmaceuticals. NFL and legal policies are beyond outdated. Legalize and decriminalize it immediately

At age 70, I'm happily retired living in a state that allows recreational marijuana with absolutely no fear of employer retaliation and/or criminal action. It is quite refreshing and empowering.

Smoke a bowl and enjoy life. It doesn't last forever.
No mstter where you live and what the laws are, you will not be allowed to test positive for marijuana, while working for an O&G company. So enjoy your retirement and weed.

But he wasn't arrest. He got a citation.
I think it’s basically the same thing for disciplinary purposes. He was technically arrested and then released on promise to appear (summons).

One game seems about right under the circumstances.

You're telling me if you test positive while you work in Weld county just outside Denver, you'll be fired? Really?

This is true. I live in Colorado and work security for a Casino. I get randomly drug tested (often) which includes MJ. Any company can, and they often do, have stronger/different requirements than the state. If you don't like those rules, you're always welcome to work elsewhere.

So I seriously doubt that any state where MJ is legal can say there is no recrimination for recreational use by all employers.

Yep, depending on the job and their individual requirements. Unless you're part of a union, most jobs are "fire at will".

You can't smoke dope and play in the NFL, no matter where you live. The requirements for drug testing for a Bronco is the same as for a Saint and so are the punishments. True also for non-union staff and support personnel.
