Marijuana use generally is not a deal breaker anymore when it comes to the NFL Draft. Multiple GMs said about half the kids they interview in the pre-draft process either admit they have used marijuana, or have a documented failed drug test in their records. They also estimate that between 60 and 70 percent of NFL players smoke weed.

Did not realize it was that high.

% of people who have used weed while in college is pretty high with the general population (not NFL guys)....IMO.

Little surprised they estimate the existing players that high though

That would explain smearing poop on a hotel wall.

That's interesting and ironic.

Based on our cap situation and some of our draft picks I think our former GM was smoking weed about 60-70% of the time.

if they aren't just reckless and stupid about it then there really isn't a problem. I would rather have the players abstain from heavy use of anything that would affect their performance on the field. But the occasional indulgence isn't unreasonable.

This is definitely true.

I watched an online interview where Deangelo Williams gave a tour of his house. That mofo blazes up all the time.
