Randy Moss is an American football wide receiver who played 14 seasons in the National Football League (NFL) was one of the best wide receivers in the NFL in which he caught 982 passes for 15,292 yards and 156 touchdowns. Everybody knows aside from his a good player he also admits he has used marijuana.
Nowadays, marijuana is the heart and core of some peculiar conversations and discussions in the NFL. Former Ravens lineman Eugene Monroe has urged the league to study the benefits and drawbacks to medical marijuana, while former quarterback Jake Plummer took Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to task for his alleged stance on the matter.
In an interview with Monday Morning Quarterback, Moss was asked if the NFL should remove marijuana from its list of banned substances. He replied, “I think the NFL just needs to loosen up the rules and let everybody live.” His answer summed up his feelings on marijuana and the NFL in one concise statement.
He was also asked about Dolphins’ first-round pick Laremy Tunsil, who experienced an extreme tumble on draft day after a video that appeared to show him smoking with a gas mask was released. According to him scouts and teams haven’t correctly judged “character issues.”
“My definition of “character issues” is based on if a guy is hurting his teammates. I think when you are caught on camera smoking something or slamming a six-pack of beer, that’s not a character issue. I think if a guy is out there driving under the influence, beating women or doing something that will really hurt others, that’s where you have to be able to draw the line. I don’t know what was smoking in the video on social media, but he wasn’t hurting nobody. He was just doing it to himself. So people are calling that a character issue? That’s not a character issue; the young man is just being himself. There are a lot worse things out there that people can put on social media. I think the impact is based on hurting anybody else and putting anybody else’s life at risk. There are certain things where you have to draw the line. But there is going to be something new every year, so get ready for this story for next year.” He said.
