    09:24 AM ET 04.21 | Marijuana use generally is not a deal breaker anymore when it comes to the NFL Draft. Multiple GMs said about half the kids they interview in the pre-draft process either admit they have used marijuana, or have a documented failed drug test in their records. They also estimate that between 60 and 70 percent of NFL players smoke weed.

    And the other 30-40% are liars.

    Wow! That's a bit more than I expected. A little use here and there wouldn't bother me but everyday use would. Too much cognitive-motor dysfunction IMO but I'm sure that doesn't stop a lot of players.

    Then can we stop putting players in the box if over half our team already does it anyways?

    According to this it would be hard to find enough guys to field a competitive team if they eliminated every guy that dabbled in weed.

    Shocker! Not. Smoking pot is like the cool thing to do today, those the "in" so to speak. Rihanna smokes it openly in a club in LA for all to see, especially the younger ones. Many other celebs do as well.

    Tried it twice in my lifetime and never saw the big deal. Maybe I wasn't doing it right? :cool:

    No surprise here. It shouldn't be a deal breaker in the draft.

    same tired refrain. It is illegal at this time. Learn to deal with THAT.

    Not everywhere, and that will continue to change. Instead of learning with THAT, people will continue to change THAT.

    Awful lot of confidence you have in the rules written by everyday people.

    That can't be good for your stamina/lung performance.

    It's probably not the best but this isn't soccer. They get to stop and huddle or rest while the O or D is on the field; and they are still in great shape.

    As often as Redskins players have been caught smoking it in the past few years, I'm sure that percentage is higher on their team.

    in the next few years? Dream on. Until the next CBA at least. Learn to deal with reality.

    think before you post. It is ILLEGAL and it is banned as part of the CBA and league rules. You get caught and you get suspended.

    Deal with reality as it is.

    The majority of that 70-80% aren't getting suspended and you will not hear their name.
