I'm sure Blount and Bell will be suspended by NFL more games than Ray Rice.

Weed should be legal, But when you are being paid millions and part of that contract is to lay off the drugs, and you don't, you are a jackass.

ok this seems suspect.. the cop's probable cause for pulling them over was "smelling pot" as the car passed? Ridiculous.. Although living in a country where trolls write despicable and racist things in the comments section as listed below it isn't too difficult to image how bias and bigotry can seep into our law enforcement.
