I doubt everyone does it, but I bet a huge portion does. Regardless I feel it should be legalized. Especially since alcohol does more damage to people, but they have no problem airing a commercial of people skipping work to drink or to take a bar exam for cold and super cold right between an inning break of a baseball game.
Joakim Noah and Michael Beasley are probably going to get possessions charges, Baron Davis will gain at least 25 pounds of fat(And that takes TALENT[Not good talent]), and I have a very strange feeling that Gilbert Arenas will do something very stupid. Also, Stephen Jackson is going to get arrested for assault.
I love it how people are trying to act like this isn't that bad of a thing because it's just pot.
You are missing the point if you think that.
The point is not that weed is such a bad thing. The thing that makes this bad for him is that he was dumb enough to be driving nearly 90 mph with a big bag of weed in his car. He represents the league very, very poorly. Michael Beasley is bad for the NBA. He may not be a bad guy, but he's a bad representation of the league and most definitely deserves a suspension for this.
I'm all for people smoking weed but I just don't get how rich people/athletes get busted for it. Don't they have lackies to take the fall for them? All these charges will end up costing Beasley next time he's up to sign a contract.
He's a ****ing idiot. I'm no holier than thou, but i never lost $1 in my life from smoking, drinking anything - i'm not risking my job over that. The next time he's up for a contract, no one is gonig to give him shit. He's going to wind up getting shipped to siberia, playing for a shit team, and disappearing on the bench. For someone with his talent it's ridiculous.
And i agree with the person who says why aren't his friends taking the fall, and i have the answer - because he's too ****ing dumb to realize they should.
