View Full Version : Weed-related poll

I write in relation to the "Chris Andersen" thread. Some comments there generated my interest in the weed-in-sports related matters:)
In particular:


I bet I can name a few other guys who do drugs in the NBA and NFL pretty easily.


Being a pro and doing drugs is not all that un-common. I can probably name a few Pacers who do.

The problem comes when you are stupid enough to use during the regular season, esp. after baseballs "steroid" fiasco the last few years........


It wasn't weed that he was doing. I hear like 90% of the Pacers smoke though.

I wanted to add a poll to my post there, but apparently it can only be done by the author of the thread.

Many of you have seen Pacers for much longer time and more often than I have, and you've heard much more rumours than I have. Thus I want to ask you - in a playful and not offensive manner, of course - to identify who might be smokers among Pacers (if any). I add both Ron and Peja to the poll - purely due to being curious;)

The person who told me (most of you know him) wouldnt say names but JO for sure (he was a Trailblazer), Tinsley probably, and I know from another person that Croshere does. It's more like which Pacer doesn't?

You should have added Reggie Miller to that poll too.

There's only one that I would even be 50% sure of. But in respect to the entire team I'm not going to cast that vote because it's not proven.

I'm actually willing to give my vote for Saras - just to correct this situation :) But I have never heard any rumours about that side of his personal life, thus I'll withhold :)

The guy in your avatar is a likely smoker.

No, can't be. He must have died 1.5 hundred years ago in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. I don't think they had any weed there...
They did have "kava", however, - a stimulating drink that used to have some drug-reminding after-effect. :)

All the votes for Jackson are wayyyy off base. For starters weed smokers are the most not violent people you will meet. I voted for Tinsley, because well....I am 100 percent sure he smokes. NO one will believe this but I actually myself have smoked in the presence of Jamaal Tinsley, because I knew a guy who is a major dealer in Indy.

I no longer smoke or do drugs of any sort. I was younger and this was about 2 years ago.

I really don't think Jackson does at all. He is way too violent/outspoken/the opposite of CALM.

So yeah I'd say most of your votes are racially motivated. I'm dissappointed in the results of this poll.

AND WHO THE HELL VOTED FOR GRANGER, THAT IS JUST A JOKE IF I'VE EVER HEARD ONE.

Why? These people don't deserve special treatment. We can speculate all we want. I have news, they could care less about any of us. So who cares? It's a fun thread anyway.

Jackson can't be a weed smoker because he wants to fight anything that moves!

How do you explain Charles Barkley then? He freely admitted to smoking weed.

He must be snuffing smth more serious then :-o

Just kidding...

Still, it reminded me of a scene from one Lynch movie ("Blue Velvet"), where an old guy snuffs some device with drugs for several seconds, takes a staring look into the cinecamera and yells "I'll f**k anything that mooooves, hah hah hah hah!!!" :)

This got me thinking, the key to Ronnie's (and pacers) was Jamison Brewer. I think when Brewer was here he found a few ways to keep Ron "calm". Just my speculation though, because when he was here we did win 61 games. Those were the good ol' days

I agree with tadscout, this poll is stupid and pretty offtopic.

Convenient how the winners of the poll also happen to be the players that everyone hates...

And for those saying Jackson doesn't smoke because hes always confrontational, well I doubt hes ever high while hes on the court, at least I would hope so. Only people that smoke a lot (hippies) have their attitude permanently affected.

I can see this thread devolving into a flamefest about the legality of pot.

Ronron takes X coz of his mood swings... Jacko takes crystal meth... I don't know if JT is a pot head but he sriously needs some anti depressants... Runi snorts coc... JO is definitely on a lot of VICODIN right now.... Rick Carlisle on the other hand is on a steady dose of Rogaine.

I agree, less the 50%. If I had to vote for only 1 player, it would have to be Pollard.

That's incredibly naive. Pot smoking does not make you a pacifist. In fact pot represses hormones that keep one calm WHEN THEY AREN"T STONED. That's why so many potheads typically get angry while driving, are prone to angry outbursts, etc

Thank you.

I thought I was the only one.

I used to care or think it was my business if players smoked weed but it is so common now a days that I don't care who smokes that stuff nor do I really believe it matters.

FWIW, Chris Anderson was caught for something else. Cannabis is not against the rules in the NBA.

Let me just go on my social rampage for a minute. I don't know what the problem is with the teens and adults in them not understanding the repurcussions of stuff like this. I can't believe how people can't see further in the future than the next few minutes. This includes getting drunk and smoking. I know that getting drunk is a common occurance, but that does not make it right. I hear of so many people's livers that are completely wasted because of years of drinking. This is in 20 to 30 year olds as well. And don't even get me started on smoking.

I know peer pressure plays a large role, but it's hard for me to see how someone can force you into doing something you don't want to do (unless they use force of course).

Marijuanna and racism, two topics that seem to always find there way onto this message board.

This thread is even better in that it actually combines the two.

You're joking right?

You say that you don't smoke anymore, so you're saying you once did, correct?

You must have hardly ever smoked, and didn't hang around people that smoked a lot.

Dependent users are VERY emotional. My bestfriend from grade-school is addicted, eventhough he'll never admit it, and he's one of the most high strung people I know.

Here's just a blurb from marijuanaaddiction.info

Longitudinal research on marijuana use among young people below college age indicates those who used have lower achievement than the non-users, more acceptance of deviant behavior, more delinquent behavior and aggression, greater rebelliousness, poorer relationships with parents, and more associations with delinquent and drug-using friends.

So, he CAN'T be a user because he's too violent?

I just noticed that you've voted for Saras. Is that due to some Lithuanian rumours about him that I don't know? Or did you do it just in order to deminish racial inequality in this poll? :)
