Sam "HeisenHurd" speaks out, used pot everyday, sold to teammates...drug tests a

The NFL tests players for marijuana, but if the imprisoned former receiver Sam Hurd is to be believed, those tests are very easy to beat. Hurd told Michael McKnight of TheMMQB.com that during his years as an NFL player he smoked pot "all day, every day, and I didn't want to hear anyone trying to tell me I had a problem."

Hurd's six-year NFL career came to an abrupt end one day in 2011 when he went from Bears practice to a Chicago restaurant to meet with two people he thought were Mexican drug dealers but were actually undercover FBI agents.

During that meeting, Hurd agreed to spend tens of thousands of dollars to buy large quantities of cocaine that he said he would have no trouble distributing. And in his interview with TheMMQB.com, Hurd also said he had no trouble distributing marijuana in the NFL, saying that during the five years he spent with the Cowboys, he became a marijuana connoisseur and passed along the good stuff to about 20 or 25 teammates.


"Whatever was considered the loudest weed in California—I wanted a notch above that," Hurd said. "I had educated myself on different strains and potencies and growing techniques. I was very selective. It was like wine."


So how did Hurd and all those teammates avoid being suspended under the NFL's substance-abuse policy? According to Hurd, players know approximately what time of year they'll get tested and just stop using when the test is coming up, then use again the rest of the year once they've provided their annual urine sample.

I laugh at the idea of the NFL only drug testing players once per year if they aren't in the substance abuse program. If they took the sport seriously they would do it as random as the olympic sports do. Otherwise the only way players get reprimanded or "helped" is when they crash into trees while drunk/high/tired like Aldon, pulled over like D. Bowe, or arrested like Hurd was.
Man... had not Hurd not gotten greedy he could have made millions on top of millions moving weed through NFL lockerooms.

That is a lot of weed at todays prices lol
What afool!

Right now he can't eat what he wants to eat, go where he wants to go. He lives in an environment where he has to be ready to fight for his life at the drop of a hat.

Based all the income he lost being an NFL player and the fun he could be having I consider him a loser of the first order.
how jonathon martin coverage got a lot more attention than the hurd arrest is beyond me

Because if they did then we would never get to watch football.

Decriminalize it and all drugs. Tax it, make money. Save money from prison spending and failed prohibition. Allow people to seek help like alcoholics do for drinking without serving prison sentences. (Obviously all driving under the influence is still a criminal act).
