NFLs weed policy tested again as Combine

Post autor: jackky » 2 lis 2017, o 03:06

An NFL player was arrested this week for marijuana po se sion. The details arent that remarkable, except in how unremarkable they are.Colts linebacker Jonathan Newsome was booked early Wednesday morning after police had shown up because of a neighbors complaint about loud music. They found a small amount in his apartment; after his arrest, he was released on bond.It's not good that Newsome DJ Swearinger Jersey got mixed up with the police, and hell suffer consequences. Buthes now open to consequences from the NFL, for having weed at his home as much as for having been arrested.MORE: Roger Goodell's 10 worst decisions | List of last year's NFL arrestsThat, once again, is a problem one through whichno NFL player should still have to suffer. Yet suffer they will, startinginevitablynext week at the Combine in, coincidentally, Indianapolis. Some prospect is destined to be the next Randy Gregory.And the question will come up again: Is thatfair?NFL people including those who look at the Combine tests as IQ tests tend to say yes. Former players, who have to manage the pain of playing the game and prefer weed to alcohol and prescription drugs, often say no.The NFL keeps itself open to tweaking its marijuana policy, as it did two years ago in reducing penalties. That, for example, helped bring the Browns' Josh Gordon back earlier from a suspension, before another failed test got him a year-long suspension.However, Roger Goodell said at his Super Bowl pre s conference two weeks ago, "We believe its the correct policy, for now, in Junior Galette Jersey the best interest of our players and the long-term health of our players. I dont foresee a change in that, clearly in the short term."This year began with 23 states allowing medicinal marijuanaand four more, plus Washington, D.C., legalizing it for recreationaluse.Legalization in one form or another could be on the ballot in nine states in 2016. (For Newsome, that includes Indiana, where a state senator last month proposed a bill to legalize medicinal marijuana, and another bill to reform the laws for recreational Josh Norman Jersey use is expected.)Goodell, however, was very clear on that i sue: We are not restricted, obviously, by the state laws."Sothe cycle will start anew at the Combine. Asegment of the public will demonize whatever player gets caught, either for having a drug problem or for being dumb. Teams will red-flag him, and his draft prospects will be jeopardized.That all takes place with a new backdrop: Prospects are now banned from the Combine if they have domestic-violence, sexual a sault or gun convictions, and they mustagree to background checks to attend.MORE: NFL goals becomefailures | IYER: Goodell underpaid, not overpaidFeel free to note the irony of that kindof scrutinyentering the proce s in 2016, after years of marking down players for marijuana use notconvictions or arrests, but merely evidence of use.Yet thats tremendous and much-needed progre s for a Fabian Moreau Jersey league with, a least, a perception of a crime problem.The same type of progre s is needed for a league with a pain problem, as well as an alcohol and painkiller problem.The key to that: deciding whether marijuana still counts as a "problem."
