Overboard suspension for weed. This could happen to any one of our players. Most of the younger guys all smoke weed. It's not sen as a hardcore natcotic by society anymore, the NFL should ease up on the rule. These guys are in pain a lot and weed is actually less adictive and less harmful than the pain killers NFL doctors have been pushing.

Gordon caught speeding; passenger had weed
Josh Gordon was issued a speeding ticket in Strongsville, Ohio over the Memorial Day weekend, while his passenger was cited for marijuana possession.
The speeding ticket is obviously a non-story, but it shows a remarkable lack of common sense and self awareness for a player in Gordon's situation â€" appealing a year-long suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy â€" to get caught with someone with marijuana.
The easy inference, of course, is that the weed didn't just belong to Gordon's friend. The situation will undoubtedly complicate Gordon's appeal of his ban, and make it far more likely the 16-game punishment is upheld. Gordon is risking a lifetime ban with his reckless behavior. It's a depressing waste of talent for a 23-year-old wideout who just won the league's receiving title
That pretty much should seal his fate for getting suspended the whole season. No suspension has been handed down yet but this should send it through the express lane.
The NFL should ease up on the weed rule. A year suspension is way too much. A lot of the younger players smoke weed and society in general is changing its view on wed. Also, the pain killers NFL doctors are pushing are far more addictive and harmful to peoples health. And weed isn't a performance enhancing drug, if anything it seems it would slow their reflexes and mess with their lungs.
NFL fans should sign petitions or pressure the league to ease off on the weed rule.
