That from Chris Sheridan's article on ESPN about the return of Chris Andersen.
Apparently they have seperate penalties dependent on whether you used marijuana or something else. Did you all know about this? I had no idea. I find that strange. I'm pretty sure the NFL places all of them on equal footing. Just thought that was interesting.
I didn't know, but I don't really keep up with the NBA drug policy. This kind of surprises me since a lot of people today equate all illegal drug use. Good for the NBA. I'm against drug-testing at work in general, except steroids in baseball. Marijuana is a nothing drug. Should be legalized.
