Much ado about nothing. Since I smoked pot for years rather than drinking as a young man.... as did the vast majority of my generation, I have a problem condemning Talib for trying it.

He seems like a decent God-fearing youngster and he should do well in the NFL.

My apologies to Talib on behalf of the hippocritical judgemental self-inflated sports writers, most of whom probably smoked pot themselves in college.

Kudos to Gruden for taking a chance on this kid!

Welcome to the Bucs kid, good luck and here's hoping you turn into a shut-down pro cornerback!

Go Bucs!

"I care about my reputation and I made a bad reputation at Kansas by doing that," Talib said. "I'm not dumb enough to do it again. I learned from my mistakes."

Now think back to 75 years ago, alcohol prohibition (you know, the prohibition on the drug than can actually kill you and harm your body). If he admitted to drinking alcohol, he would have had a bad reputation then. Now he can drink (killing his liver, if not himself and anyone around him first) and be considered perfectly responsible for choosing alcohol, but once he makes the safer choice he hurts his reputation.

What a wonderful country this is.

You see, I'm not a very angry man. But I do hate stupidity and when people make assumptions. Don't you ever call me lazy until you meet with the number of politicians I have met with, taken as many trips to the capitolas I have, and planned as many events as I have (such as the Global Marijuana March in downtown Orlando).

Oh and also I am also for liberal and a member of the Knights for Liberty. So again, stop giving liberals such a bad image by looking like a completely retarded moron who doesn't take time to think about what they say before they say it.

86% of America wants it decriminalized. In 2003 47% of America ADMITTED to trying it. 5 million people light up every day. Illegal does not mean it will give you a bad reputation. If you look back in history you can find many respectable individuals who believed the laws were not where they were supposed to be and did illegal things that were very respectable. You should read about Women's and Minorities Suffrage. It's quite amazing to learn what used to happen to people in this country who felt they deserved as many rights as others. But keep your ideals that all Americans agree with all laws and therefore a person can not be considered respectable for breaking a law that they (and the majority of America) feel shouldn't be a law.

Blacks, women, pot heads.. Why should they have any rights, this country was created for the white alcoholic man and no one else..

Only a DA would say this:

You are absolutely right. In the idea that pot heads are just lazy ignorant people, I do give them a bad name. I am one of the few working to make a change.

But most of us consider that to be a good thing because we actually want change.
