Not good. That's their starting RBs. The NFL doesn't punish anyone anyway so no big deal

Okay I realize that yes they broke the law. The law itself is dumb though. I can't believe weed is still illegal. I don't even smoke weed but I think it's crazy that it's not legal on a national legal. Now I think it should follow the same laws as booze as in you can't smoke and drive. This is sooooo dumb. You can smoke all you want in a couple states but drive five miles over a state border and boom you go to jail. Craziness!!!!! I got pulled over a couple months ago. Basically we got pulled over for being white and a black neighborhood (where I live) so we got searched. All they found was a little bit of weed on my friend. The cop just threw it on the ground and he even said that it should be legal!!!!
