When you're high as shit you can see the holes open up way before the holes open up. It's a nice tool to have as a RB. Trust me, I've gained about a million yards playing Madden. Weed helps. I wouldn't be surpised is Mikel ends up beating Emmett's record.
OT - Mikel LeShoure busted for pot twice in a month
You could be right. I guess we'll just have to put up with a few unecessary spin moves that were meant to be hurdles or stiff arms.
It really doesn't do that much to you. The Gover-nator smoked all damn day and he was ripped as shit. I don't know what his 40 time was, but a bunch of NFL guys are just hulking dudes.
Actually, the most recent studies (and this was a JAMA article with the research performed at the leading centers for medical research) have shown that chronic marijuana use has a negligible effect on lung capacity. Small increases in lung capacity were actually shown among heavy pot smokers, with the researchers suggesting the practice of inhaling deeply and holding smoke in actually functioned to train the lungs to accept more air.
Good thing we re-signed Kevin smith. I just hope the lions figured out his issues and this wasn't a TOTAL surprise.
Two busts in a short period of time? For the same thing?
Cue the voice of Red Forman: "YOU'RE A DUMBASS!"
That goes for you too, Mr. Ryan (Sweet) Leaf.
According to Anwar Richardson (@AnwarRichardson on Twitter):
"#Lions RB Mikel Leshoure did not show up for his arraignment today and a bench warrant has been issued for his arrest"
I don't know who Anwar Richardson is, but there's that. Take it for what it's worth, I guess.
I don't think I would ever personally go that route, but apparently there are sources to consult as to the effects of doing so...
This guy might know, if you're interested. I am guessing these are the sorts of experts one would go to if you had to dispose of your stash in a hurry.
Just more proof that money can't buy you intelligence.
Damn it. I was expecting this dude to live up to the 2nd round billing. I am all for pot if that's your thing (I would rather drink personally), but for sure don't roll around with it. I mean for fucks sake. That's like drunk driving. There is just no reason for it. So stupid. Hopefully he finds the field and doesn't get suspended.
I mean, this problem is complicated in general.
Obviously, Mike is a selfish man. He's probably not real bright. He's probably pretty stubborn. Traits that make him a great running back!
Everyone knows that pot smoking is fairly harmless. Mike is part of that everyone statement.
Stubborn - harmless drug - time on his hands - thinks he's getting away with it - not real smart - unlucky - Oops again
Maybe it's not that complicated after all!
LeShoure really needs to watch this video on how to hide your stash.
Its both a big deal and not a big deal. The actual offense isn't a big deal at all,to most open-minded people.
The problem is the lack of maturity and selfishness. Part of his job is to be ready to play, and violating rules makes him actively fail at that job. He is being paid handsomely to do a few things - one of those is to not break the law or league rules. Putting his desire to smoke above his job exhibits his priorities.
This is really too bad. He's a guy I was rooting for, and not just because I'm a Lions fan. It's too bad when people throw their life away for drugs. I hope he turns it around.
The Lions will have to face the fact that RB is once again a need. Best and Smith can't be counted on to stay on the field, and LeShoure can't be counted on to stay off the grass.
See what I did there?
No serious athlete, amateur or professional, should smoke anything purely from the standpoint of lung function. As far as the notion that pot is a completely benign substance with no negative effects whatsoever? I smoked enough of it back in the '70s—when the garden-variety stuff we could get our hands on was far weaker than what is available today—to know that notion is hogwash.
That's not to say that our laws regarding pot aren't crazy in many ways and shouldn't be changed, but that's different from thinking it doesn't have any negative effects on people.
Leshoure appears to be just another physically-talented knucklehead who will smoke (and probably drink) his potential away. He's just giving up a spot to some other athlete who is able to control himself.
From the study Needs references: "... but marijuana smokers are still at risk for chronic bronchitis, which means they tend to have increased cough and mucus."
The Zook falls not far from the seed.
Come on, he missed his entire rookie season due to injury, he should be afforded some pot use without charges.
