Reader: Von Miller is proof that marijuana rots your brain
Yesterday, we noted that Broncos all-pro Von Miller is fighting a reported suspension for a positive drug test in a post that features activist Mason Tvert calling for leagues to modify their pot-use rules.
But this reader had precious little sympathy for Miller.
You get three warning in the NFL before they even acknowledge the possibility of a suspension. We're not exactly talking about a bunch of draconian hard-asses here. Miller had plenty of notice before he chose to forfeit, likely, hundreds of thousands of dollars in salary, and probably even more in future sponsorship opportunities. If this isn't proof that marijuana rots your brain, then I don't know what is.
That eighth just got a little more expensive, didn't it, Von?
