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.
There is no reason to treat safe drugs like Marijuana to stuff like coke. Alcohol is far more dangerous than weed
