Not sure why people are questioning the suspension. It may be for alcohol, but what difference does it make?
He was given a set of parameters that he had to meet to get out of the drug program. He was apparently told he could not drink alcohol, or would be in violation and subject to a years' suspension.
He did not hold up his end of the deal. That should be the end of the discussion. You cannot defend this action. He failed a drug test for alcohol, and whether it is legal or not is completely irrelevant.
Can we please stop acting like he is a victim in this?
Not when Marty did it to himself saying the exact same thing 2 minutes before. .
Dave was joking because Marty was self defecating and it was a respectful back and forth. . Dave would have never said the line before giving props for drafting Cam if Marty wouldn't have done it 1st. .
