    so many smokers on this team..wtf. Moss/Stallworth/Faulk/Andrews..wouldnt doubt more

    my love for Faulk went down some now..i really look @ smokers differently(not a good way)

    i was hoping for a better example by 1 of our captains and most underrated players in the league

    Spare us the sanctimonious crap. This is likely the reason neither Andrews nor Faulk will be cut.

    If you think this type of behavior is rare in the NFL, I have some beachfront property to sell you.

    Doesn't really bother me - smoking a joint at a concert... who cares. It's the off-season and I'm not even going to get started on how ridiculous marijuana laws are in this country.

    It's a plant. Alcohol does more damage to the body that pot ever could.

    Seriously. What the hell, I've never seen someone arrested for having weed at a show.

    They're usually just told to leave.

    PS: Legalize it.

    If he beat a chick up or killed someone drunk driving, I'd be a tad perturbed. But I really don't give a rat's ass who gets busted for something as innocuous as possession of marijuana, athlete or not.

    A) That's not the point. One is illegal, one isn't.

    B) I find it sad how many people on this board believe marijuana is absolutely fine. Then again, this is Massachusetts. Not exactly Conservative America. Unfortunately.

    Yes, a crime.

    Maybe we should legalize attempting suicide too.

    "Legality" doesn't make me think that pot's bad but alcohol's still good. Legal/illegal when it comes to substance is a question of money. Always has been, always will be.

    And no, I don't smoke anything.

    Well I'm in California so I'm probably even worse of an example. I'd just rather hear he got caught with joints at a concert than driving drunk.

    It's only a crime, because our country tells us it is.

    Doesn't mean the punishment is justified.

    Blacks once held no legal rights in this country. Them drinking out of the wrong fountain was a crime. Doesn't justify the punishment.

    Faulk was moronic (idiotic, stupid, insert adjective here) for putting himself in this position.

    You don't have to be a liberal to think that marijuana should be legal, or to think that the American response to the issue of dangerous drugs is completely @#%(&ed up. And, BTW, there is no fundamental reason why marijuana couldn't be given a 'legitimate' status in the same way that both alcohol and nicotine products are. [Moreover, last I heard, a lot more people in this country are harmed by nicotine than marijuana; why is it legal again?]

    I don't think all drugs should be legalized, but I do think that the drug laws need to be reformed.

    Jaywalking is illegal, too.

    Question is, why would this diminish anyone's opinion of Faulk?

    The guy wanted to get high at a concert. What's the difference between that and getting drunk?

    Because it demonstrates stupidity on Faulk's part, the kind of stupidity that we wouldn't expect from a veteran captain of the Patriots.

    If he's not in the substance abuse program, he's about to find out what a pain it is to pee into the cup at random for the rest of career.

    If he is already in the substance abuse program, he could be looking at a supension.

    Either way, his NFL career with the Patriots is in jeopardy.

    Because it could lead to his suspension?

    Plus, it isn't like this team needs more bad press.

    Re: Ugh Faulk Arrested (Yes Kevin)

    There's two separate issues here.

    The first is Faulk doing something illegal. Whether it's assault and battery, DUI, murder, rape, theft, etc., it's something that can get you arrested. He's dumb to reflect the organization as poorly as he has.

    The second is "legalize it?" This question has no bearing on what Faulk did. Just because he doesn't believe in the law doesn't mean he should disregard it. And as to this issue, we went through this before with Willie Andrews, and with Dexter Reid. In both of those situations, there was an overwhelming majority of posters in those threads who are proponents of legalizing it. I sure as hell hope that same percentage doesn't represent the number of pot heads on this board. I'd be ashamed to be a member here. It's sad. You have the right to disagree with the law, but I was astounded at the almost unanimous "it's nothing/marijuana is harmless/shouldn't be illegal/player X didn't do anything wrong/I do it too" attitude. No wonder why police narcotics units are fighting such an uphill battle against this stupid ****.

    It's not illegal to attempt suicide. Sure, they'll lock you up if they think you're a continuing danger to yourself, but you're not going to have criminal charges for attempting suicide.

    What Faulk did was bad because it's illegal and now he put himself in an akward position with the team, but it's not like he did something morally reprehensible.

    Not to be facetious here, but I don't think it's in much more jeopardy than it is for any other player; they could have released Andrews already if they wanted (he's arguably much more easily replaceable), and they didn't, so why would they cut Faulk over this?

    The difference is that if he got drunk he would've probably:
    a) gotten into a fight
    b) vomited
    c) passed out in an undesirable location/position
    d) woke up hungover, perhaps without remembering what he did
    e) made an ***** of himself to at least 2-3 women
    f) spent way too much on concert alcohol (not that it matters to a pro athlete)


    If it was just Pot he would've probably only:
    a) eaten chips

    No my friend, the reason they're fighting an uphill battle is because they want jobs. Drug enforcement employs lots of people, they don't care if they ever succeed because it's the fight that keeps them coming back. I'm not saying harm doesn't come from drugs, but US drug policy is to take a bazooka to a fly.

    Re: SMY: Kevin Faulk arrested for marijuana possession

    The immediate question here is whether Faulk will be cut. This is obviously highly unlikely, but I would definitely support the Pats' cause if they ever decided to do that.

    The next is Faulk's impending entrance into a drug treatment/rehab program and/or a suspension.

    The third is more negative press for the Pats. First Sullivan, then Andrews, now Faulk. Mr. Kraft can't be happy.
