Who cares, Marijuana isn't an addictive nor a gate way drug. People are just stupid, I use Marijuana medically in California and I go running everyday and have 3.6 gpa in college. WHO CARES! get with the times already, criminalizing booze never worked and its not working for marijuana right now. FACT - alcohol is more harmful to your body than marijuana, alcohol is a poisen to your body. While the thc in marijuana is found naturally in the human brain and thats why it affects us. get a clue dude. BTW, this kid will be something special with TB, imo.

OK, OK, marijuana isn't a gateway drug to everyone... that's true... however if you ask just about anyone that has been, or is addicted to cocaine, heroin, or just about any narcotic, you'll find they started out smoking weed.
It's not that they were stupid... sometimes other drugs just find their way into the picture. Marijuana shows up in drug testing for months after it's smoked. Cocaine is out of your system in a couple of days. HMMM... maybe someone that likes to get high, but wants to be clean for a possible random drug test on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc.. might party with coke on Friday night. Does that seem like a gateway from marijuana to coke? It's not smart to do hard drugs, but some people make bad decisions, like this one, and end up on a bad road. I had about six or seven close friends that smoked weed regularly in college. All ended up "trying" coke, after all sweared they would never do anything stronger then mushrooms. Three have been to rehab, another fell into ridiculous debt, and another (35 yrs old) is still living with his parents, strung out on coke, pills, and alcohol. I never got into smoking weed, and I never judged my friends for enjoying their afterwork smoke. It killed me everytime I found out one of them started doing coke. It messed up all of their lives for a good while.
Marijuana is relatively harmless, much less dangerous than hard drinking. Unfortunately, it isn't legal, and it likely will never be legal. Everyone has to grow up sometime. Hopefully, Hernandez was just experimenting a bit. If you get to earn millions doing what you love, then just stay off drugs, be a role model, and find better outlets to cope. Winning a Super Bowl would beat any type of artificial high anyways.
