Antwan Odom arrested on drug charges

On the same day news broke that a current low-level NFL player was arrested for being a high-level drug kingpin (even if he really isn’t), a former high-level NFL player has been arrested on low-level drug charges.

WKRG-TV reports that defensive end Antwan Odom, 30, was arrested for possession of marijuana in Alabama, after a traffic stop.

A second-round pick of the Titans in 2004, Odom had eight sacks in six games with the Bengals in 2009, before rupturing an Achilles’ tendon.  Injuries and a suspension under the league’s anti-doping policy limited him to four games in 2010.

    Why is weed illegal?
    ____________________

    1) Big Pharma makes money selling you drugs. If people could grow their own, profits would plummet.

    2) Alcohol manufacturers have the legal recreational drug market cornered, don’t want to give that up. Pot is competition.

    3) The prison and law enforcement industries make lots of money enforcing anti-pot laws and incarcerating violators.

    4) Politicians take big donations from 1-3, and also like to tell their older constituents (who vote in large percentages) that they’re being tough on crime.

    So, yeah, it should be legal. But Odom still should be arrested, even if it were. Why? Because “responsible use” doesn’t involve smoking and driving.

  2. “He deserves to be arrested for still wearing Affliction!”

    Still? Don’t you mean ever?

    @ctiggs

    Because it is the greatest industrial good of all time and would put an end to the global economy and domination of the global economy by the elite of society. Thats the truth.

  3. Another genius, shoot these guys whit stupid pills. I think that is the only thing that would unerstand. Dumb bastards,,,,, Get gone with the all for good….

  4. Got no problem if he wants to smoke hippie lettuce all day. However, heading a distribution ring is a whole other story.

    All you clowns defending this a-hole like he’s a victim are amusing.

    Today’s example of tragic irony: 3535 questioning someone’s intelligence!

  6. It’s weed. Who really cares? I don’t smoke it but I did in high school and it didn’t do anything but make me eat a little more after getting high. I was never a raging lunatic after smoking it unlike some of those who get stupid drunk. It should be legal.

    Shouldn’t the feds be focusing on those who are dealing drugs such as cocaine? Oh wait……Seeya in 20 Hurd!

    Hey — I represent that.

    I’m rapidly turning into an “older constituent” and think being “tough on crime” is bull.

    So is getting hauled in and booked for finding weed on you. Unless its in dealer-sized quantities.

    I know all about Alabama law enforcement. I saw “My Cousin Vinny.”

    Don’t get me wrong, I think it should be legalised. In fact, I think all recreational drugs should be legalised but there is one additional reason why cannabis is currently still illegal.

    5) It is dangerous. It contains a number of powerful psychotropic compounds that have been strongly linked with exacerbating and triggering short and long-term periods of mental illness.

    That doesn’t mean it should be illegal, we’re allowed to do plenty of dangerous and completely pointless activities so it seems massively hypocritical to single out recreational drugs, which would be whole lot safer and cause a lot less violent and serious organised crime if they weren’t illegal.

    Still, it should be criminal to ignore the fact that messing around with your neurochemistry can have pretty nasty side-effects.

    Moreover, most of the cannabis being grown today is not “natural”. Years of selective breeding have completely changed the plant as surely as it had been genetically modified by one of the “Big Pharma” companies. THC yields are significantly higher than they were in the 1960’s and it has completely changed the pharmacogical balance, with THC now completely swampings the effects of the other cannabinoids. As far as my experience goes, growers have managed to completely f-it up, making it more dangerous and less fun.

    If anything, I would make this the last drug to be legalised because it will take longer to educate the public of its dangers than any of the other drugs.
