1. Even if hard drugs carry greater health risks than marijuana, rationally, we can’t ban them without comparing the harm from prohibition against the harms from drugs themselves. In a society that legalizes drugs, users face only the negatives of use. Under prohibition, they also risk arrest, fines, loss of professional licenses, and more.

  2. Yes, there is a distinction between criminal acts and violations of the league’s proscribed rules, rules that carry specific — if arbitrary — punishments. But if the justification for punishing each kind of off-field crime is that it’s necessary to defend the game’s “integrity” and ensure players act as role models, then the league is putting these disparate crimes under the same moral rubric.

  12. It’s already well documented that you can get extremely paranoid from smoking too much weed or give yourself a terrible stomachache after a terrible case of the munchies.

    Now, add sudden death to the list of those fears.

    The Telegraph reported that 31-year-old Gemma Moss collapsed in her bedroom and died after toking on just half a joint. An autopsy revealed that there was nothing wrong with her except for “moderate to high “levels of THC in her bloodstream when she died, leading the coroner to believe she had a marijuana-induced heart attack and smoked herself to death.
