you might as well just suspend people for smoking cigs, too.

Even if it's harmless, as an athlete, and player of a serious contention team, he shouldn't be doing ANY recreational drugs. It's playoff time, he shouldn't be sitting there trying to have fun, he should be focused into the task, and his job.

actually it happened before playoff time- sometimes near the end of the season. it's just that it took a couple weeks for the results to come back.

as for not having fun... does that mean that you shouldn't have any fun either because you work a job? (assuming you have a job)

as for it being the law... of course it's the law. but just because something is a law doesn't mean it's just or makes any sense. ever heard of 'blue' laws? how about prohibition?

do you know why marijuana is illegal in the first place?

End of the season isn't till your team is done playing, which wasn't true at all. Fun is different from breaking the law. If he wanted to go watch movies or bowling or whatever, sure, probably needs to unwind seeing how tense it gets. But not go off breaking the law. If it was fun for him to drive at 110 mph on the Garden State at 8 AM, would you go condone that too? No, ofcourse not. He needs to be focused and doing what he has to for the team. That's what the point is.

i meant end of the regular season, for that's when he was tested.


> If it was fun for him to drive at 110 mph
> on the Garden State at 8 AM, would you go condone that too?

that depends... is anybody's life at risk?

if nobody's life is at risk then screw the law. laws are not written by transcendant beings who know what's best for us. if you have little conscience towards your fellow man and society, then laws are prolly a good thing. if your intent is peaceful and responsible and laws are causing you harm, then those laws are not so good.

better yet, let's just agree to disagree over the robinson thing?

agreed. we should agree to disagree.


no need to get into a political discussion and turn our fellow Nets family into a war between liberal and conservative ideals. save that for the main forum against the Knick fans.
