Pot Video Cost Laremy Tunsil Millions

June 14, 2017

The Number 1 pick in the NFL was Laremy Tunsil. He had millions of dollars coming his way from several different teams. But all that changed when a old video of him smoking weed throw a gas mask went viral.

The University of Mississippi offensive tackle went from top pick to 13th pick when the pot video was released.The clip was posted on Tunsil's Twitter account, which he closed shortly afterward. But by then, the video had already gone viral. Tunsil said his account was hacked. After the Miami Dolphins choose Tunsil. He told Deion Sanders That “  it was a mistake. It happened years ago," and “someone had my Twitter account and that's how it got on there."

Later after the draft Laremy got hacked again. But this time it was his instagram instead of his twitter. What was posted was a screenshot of an alleged exchange between the player and a member of the Ole Miss athletics department regarding payment of his mother's $305 utility bill. Which is a major NCAA violation.

Well it’s clear that Laremy is being targeted by someone out to get him. The NFL shouldn’t even acknowledge the attack on him. It isn’t fair that one should suffer under the spite of another. Also he was the number 1 pick in the NFL and tha changed all because of an old video of him smoking pot. Yeah, to be fair smoking shouldn’t be associated with sports. But he was smoking he still had the ability to impress when the world didn’t know. So instead of looking down on him they should have been more impressed and looking forward to see how he performs without smoking.

Minority public figures often embraced the plant at a time it was most stigmatized and criminalized. Now, America seems to be changing its cannabis’ tune and more socially accepting of pot. With new cannabis legislation, decriminalization, and business opportunities to start; some are questioning minority representation in the industry, and why black farmers are left without a plot. In Maryland, not one of the fifteen cannabis growers chosen by the state for cultivation licenses is minority-owned. Only 1% of the marijuana dispensaries in the nation are black owned.

Gridiron Ganja: Did Marijuana Advocacy Lead to NFL Player’s Release?
Gridiron Ganja: Did Marijuana Advocacy Lead to NFL Player’s Release?

June 20, 2017

Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman Eugene Monroe won’t be on the next roster, and it may be for his advocacy for medical marijuana. Monroe’s January recovery from a shoulder injury inspired him to write about marijuana versus opioids, and donate $80,000 to medical marijuana researchers at both Johns Hopkins University and the University of Pennsylvania. His work, he tweeted, was all for his “brothers… the players that make up the team… our future health and wellness.”

Unfortunately, his offseason, offtopic efforts failed to impress the Ravens officials. In the days leading up to his release, attitudes from the organization led Monroe to wonder if his marijuana advocacy was to blame. Interestingly, his original questions were less about the drug, and more about overall NFL healthcare.

Workplace Drug Testing Is Going To Die Because of Legal Weed

It is arguable that reviewing old drug testing policies is going to be a big trend in U.S. companies in the nearest future. If the weed is legal, and the job can be done safely under cannabis influence, why would an employer be concerned about marijuana consumption enough to spend money on drug testing? 

Current situation is creating a whole lot of consequences, like people easily cheating on drug tests by adding water to their urine, or other people making money on ‘weed detox sets’ that claim to free your system of cannabis traces in just three days. More than 93% test negative, but employers continue testing. In most cases, we just avoid working for companies that drug test employees.
