    That way we can draft him.
    Your logic is flawless.

      As far as character issues concerning the three that admitted to doing marijuana. Yes, marijuana can be addictive and dictate your life if you let it; however, so can alcohol, cigarettes, etc. Most people that smoke pot, do it recreationally, just like a night out at the bars. These three have not let it affect their game, and they all seem to be upstanding citizens. Okoye is graduating college at 19, I mean come on, that is fantastic!

      You do not know this for a fact, perhaps they could have played better than they have. Please do not make statements that can't be proved.

      You are correct that if we wanted to regulate it it could be done, but no one wants to open up that bag of worms. Having legal addicted stoners that in most cases move on to harder drugs.

        JR, you are right, I can't prove that; however, Calvin Johnson is already a freak of nature, and it's very hard to believe he could be any better. Maybe it has affected their game, but if so, it would appear to be minimal; and once again, there is no way to tell if it was marijuana that affects their game; it could be a multitude of factors: alcohol, marijauna, personal problems, etc.

        As far as the whole "gateway drug," there are studies that support the theory and there are studies that refute that theory. It is pretty ambiguous, and more or less a scare tactic to keep kids from using marijuana, which is fine. I'm not advocating one way or the other, but people are going to smoke no matter what; and if the government stepped in and regulated it, it could be much safer.

          Fallacy: Begging the Question

          Also Known as: Circular Reasoning, Reasoning in a Circle, Petitio Principii.
          Description of Begging the Question

          Begging the Question is a fallacy in which the premises include the claim that the conclusion is true or (directly or indirectly) assume that the conclusion is true. This sort of "reasoning" typically has the following form.

          1. Premises in which the truth of the conclusion is claimed or the truth of the conclusion is assumed (either directly or indirectly).
          2. Claim C (the conclusion) is true.

          This sort of "reasoning" is fallacious because simply assuming that the conclusion is true (directly or indirectly) in the premises does not constitute evidence for that conclusion. Obviously, simply assuming a claim is true does not serve as evidence for that claim. This is especially clear in particularly blatant cases: "X is true. The evidence for this claim is that X is true."

          Some cases of question begging are fairly blatant, while others can be extremely subtle.
          Examples of Begging the Question

          1. Mary: "God put weed on earth for a reason."
          Jane: "How do you know."
          Mary: "Because the Bible says so."
          Jane: "Why should I believe the Bible?"
          Mary: "Because the Bible was written by God."
