Pot excoriated, alcohol glorified
What is astounding here is the level of hypocrisy showcased by the National Football League and the sporting establishment. There is probably no business entity on the planet that promotes-glorifies-advocates-and endorses the heavy consumption of alcohol more than the National Football League. Try this -- record for four quarters of any NFL game, the alcohol ads alone. And play them back to back. Its quite the experience. It is impossible to quantify or comprehend the sheer destruction, horror and misery that alcohol abuse wreaks on society. Alcohol is ever present in major car fatalities and in a majority of virtually all violent crime. The numbers are staggering. And the NFL has their own official beer. And their relationship with the alcohol industry grows stronger by the day.
Keep this in mind when excoriating this player for using pot and facing career ending suspension-those imposing the sanctions are the active partners and promoters of the most widely abused and destructive drug in human history -- alcohol. And this epic double standard goes unmentioned.
