    With what we're slowly learning about the mysteries of the brain (e.g., CTE), I wonder how much of players' marijuana use is, consciously or unconsciously, an attempt to self-medicate.

    Iíll be shocked if this is even remembered come training camp or September. I just donít see it affecting his time on the field or in a contract in a couple of years - should he stay out of trouble.

    While society may be changing, I'm not sure NFL owners are - I don't think any of them like to see their players in the headlines for being arrested.
    Somebody understands. He's already in the program because of his diluted sample at the combine. Not to mention his "misunderstanding" with the medical department there.

    I believe that the NFL has a mandatory drug program for these types of offenses. The NFL doesn't let this stuff go, though it will be treated as a first offense.

    These days, one has actually to TRY to get busted for weed; I mean fire one up after asking the cop for a match effort.

    Bad publicity could have been avoided easier than earned.

    He will pay his penance with the judicial system, but the social stigma just isn't there for most anymore.
    I guess I see it more in line with getting a DUI. The majority of people arrested for marijuana possession have been using it in their car while driving. If someone is going to smoke or drink, do it in the privacy of your home without endangering other people sharing the road.

    He was only charged with possession. He probably was not noticeably high or caught in the act of using it because otherwise there would likely be additional charges for driving while under the influence. Seems like they pulled him over, had probably cause to search, and found the marijuana.
