The sad thing is that UGA will likely see this Tony Barnhart post as a call to action for the SEC to adopt Georgia’s drug policy for student-athletes.

Their status for the season-opener with Clemson on September 3 has yet to be determined.
C’mon Tony. This is Auburn. You know damn well they are playing.
I was thinking the same thing.
Otherwise, Mr. Conventional Wisdom spoke the truth.
What most fail to realize that the legal age for POT in the states that have legalized is 21….how many football players are 21? I would contend less than half the roster is, probably more. Still going to be a crime for those under 21…not that I agree with it, but it is what it is. The MIP laws for kids 18-20 generate thousands of dollars for local community…lawyers/cops/probation officers etc….they are not going to walk away from that.
Underage pot smokers? Tell me it ain’t so, Joe.

Now it does. wtf?
You may want to lay off the Mary Jane, dude.
” The MIP laws for kids 18-20 generate thousands of dollars for local community…lawyers/cops/probation officers etc….they are not going to walk away from that.”
don’t start on the lawyers on this blog….the biggest recipient of the MIP/VGCSA(drugs) money windfall is the governmental entity making the arrest. Most lawyers I know that defend these citizens that the government has designated as criminals (i.e. criminal defense lawyers), over time develop a libertarian philosophy and would gladly lose the portion of their income they derive from these BS laws….its the County and Municipal authorities that will not let lose of the fine revenue. Acknowledging that Judges are lawyers it is mostly bureaucrats that benefit from these laws. You are not wrong…. you just painted with too broad a brush.
The name ‘Auburn’ has the same effect on my brain as the letters ‘IRS’. Willfully unfair, capricious, slanted, corrupt, and fair-weather partners of influence-peddlers paid to protect and misdirect oversight efforts. They sell stink by the kilogram not microgram, and for some reason Mr CFB buys it by the truck load. Even discussing a policy addressing standards (any category of standards) within the SEC and including Auburn widens the standard deviation past the mean and invalidates the most commonly used statistical test. Auburn is a reptile that talked it’s way into the small mammal house and leaves canal-slime everywhere. UTK is close, which makes the repetitive ‘we do things the right way at UTK’ a sentence that is nothing short of a verbal Hollywood special effect when El Senor repeats it… . Nonetheless, I think Gus is basically a good guy and good coach. Unfortunately, he is incarcerated at Auburn. Parole is likely to come in late fall 2016. Butch, on the other hand, is an orange fox with Hirschsprung’s disease. Always darting around for a place to shit but unable to because of his disease and getting more moody by the minute. UTK bit off our ear last year but we brought in the plastic surgeon for the 2016 date…the champ’s son. He’ll tear off some of that scowl on El Senor’s face and use it to rebuild our ear. Then Butch can tell us how UTK does things the right way. Especially if the right way includes sexual assault and cover-ups.
best post of the spring
Wildly applauding that post, Steve.
Holy crap, but that was good.
That was sweet Steve –Sweet revenge on the urnge is coming
For someone who thinks AU fans border on cult status, Steve’s rant may be the best post ever on the subject!
So Tony says pot possession is legal in 4 states. Though not actually enforced, does no one remember that there is federal law that says pot is not legal. Agree or not, it is still not legal in any state. Four states may have chosen to say it is legal, but those laws are still superceded by federal law. I’m not a lawyer, but I did sleep with one…
