  1. Drugs Are Bad Mmmkay

    I think we should legalize all drugs and drug test every single American every day and publish the results. That way we can know who's fun to party with and who's just a hypocritical asshole.

    Yes, because rage-tweeting at 3 am is something totally normal people who are not using cocaine do all the time. Nothing suspicious there (sniff!)

    Would you support drug testing of the hockey team as vigorously as drug testing of the football team? The drug use rates in collegiate/ NHL hockey is astronomical and it's a lot harder stuff than marijuana.

    Since I've been accused of being a "stoner" I had best defend myself, I haven't smoked a joint since college where I partook maybe a handful of times while at UND. I was on the FB team so I guess at any time I could have been tested shortly after smoking and failed and been kicked off the team and had my name drug through the mud in the papers, even though I was an honor student who graduated with two degrees. The pollyanna's on this thread are naïve to how much drug use is prevalent in our society. Stock brokers, investment bankers and politicians (cough.... Trump, Steve Bannon) can snort all the coke they can handle and we'll look the other way because it makes them more productive. Police officers, fire fighters, and our military can take steroids to build up their bodies for the physical rigors of the job and we'll ignore it in even the most obvious of cases. In Silicon Valley right now, web developers pay for hallucinogens like mushrooms and LSD to enhance their creativity and, if Steve Jobs is to be believed, it's why we have the iPhone. All over the country (especially in ND) their are millions of Americans who can't make it through the day without a pain pill or two or three or four and they're the helpless victims of addiction. The only time anyone ever actually pays any price for drug use is when a young person (usually black or Hispanic) decides to use marijuana, because of all the horrible addictions (alcohol, gambling, pornography) that someone can fall into, for some reason marijuana is the one we get upset about.

    This is going to be my last post on this because we're de-railing the thread but the government can fire a stinger missile at you with a flying robot. You're not going to stand much of a chance with a 30 round magazine and a semi-automatic rifle.

    I don't have the same background your wife has but having grown up with an extended family of addicts of all types of persuasion, I will say that there are far more destructive legal addictions. We all need to honestly assess if we have that genetic pre-disposition to addiction and be vigilant in our personal lives to make sure we don't succumb to it.

    It actually doesn't. What leads to other stuff is when you're doctor prescribes you a 30 day prescription of OxyContin after your knee or rotator cuff surgery with a re-fill and two months later you're going through withdrawals so bad getting off the stuff that you start buying pills from others. That's the real drug problem is this country. It isn't pot-smokers.

    There are plenty of athletes who are able to use marijuana and perform at a high level. There is even scientific evidence that it can help heal the effect of head trauma. If they are using enough to impact their performance on the field then that's another problem, but it's no different than if any other distraction is impacting their performance (alcohol, crazy girlfriends, video games, etc.).

    Do we really care if high schoolers are smoking marijuana? Of all the things that high schoolers get into, that's probably the least of our worries.

    I'm going to be frank with you. I don't think possessing either is that big a deal. From all appearances they are at worst small time dealers making some extra bucks on the side. They aren't the cartel and it's long past time we stopped ruining peoples futures for a plant that's legal for nearly half of the population.

    I would hope federal law enforcement has better !@#$ to do. God bless America... A person can purchase the tools to shoot and maim nearly 600 people in 15 minutes but can't buy or sell a plant they intend to smoke in their own home.

    I'm not going to defend anyone on this football team's performance to this points, as it's clear that a lot of these guys aren't focused on football. That being said, I'm not going to be surprised when a few months pass by and these two plead to misdemeanor drug paraphernalia charges. The GFPD is notorious for overcharging and some of their drug possession charges have been largely fictional. It's ridiculous as they make this crap up for the newspapers and two months later when the charges are pled down significantly or dropped altogether it isn't mentioned anywhere. If you go back and look at the last few drug arrests with the program and how they ultimately ended up, you'll see that the GFPD has been less than forthright.
  13. Gameday: F'N Hawks vs Bobcats

    He's missing on too many recruits. He has far too many players leave after one or two seasons. It's a sign that the staff is not evaluating talent appropriately. Also, I'm going to get ripped for this but Poole's situation could have been handled differently. I'm sorry but every football team in the country has players that occasionally smoke marijuana. Hell it's legal in his home state. It's a football team not the church choir.
  14. Gameday: F'N Hawks vs Bobcats

    True. The coaching staff is 100% culpable with this. This is Bubba's 4th season. There is zero excuse for the lack of depth and for how this team is executing. Injuries are part of the game and you need to have the depth to overcome them.
  15. Gameday: F'N Hawks vs Bobcats

    I think the seniors are a big part of the problem. This team is once again not ready to play. It looks as though there is no leadership in the locker room whatsoever.
