Monday “Pot”pourri

I am wondering why is it a big deal that Ricky Williams smokes pot. After he has failed his fourth drug test I hope the NFL would do more to help Ricky that to shame him. With the witch hunt that has been going on in the NFL I bet they just throw him away. I do not smoke pot but I have in the past. I heard the Ricky uses it to combat a mental disorder. Great, Ricky has never hurt anyone. Folks we need to rethink our war on drugs and while we are at it let us look at this war on terror. Jackasses…when did we start cutting people out of the creation fold, is that not Gods job.

I know who let the dogs out…Vick, Vick, Vick.
