Glazer: Bogus KU Pot Bust a Sham – Let it Go, People

Lions and Tigers and Bears…oh, my!

Let the insane, stupid witch hunt begin. A weed dealer – lord save the planet and shoot him fast – sold smoke to some KU Student Athletes.

What’s the world coming to? Let’s ruin their lives, their careers – we’ll show ’em.

EVIL DO GOODERS TO THE RESCUE, HERE THEY COME.

Overland Park weed man Samuel Villeareal, 32, tried to distribute 1,000 kilos of the devil herb. They didn’t catch him with much of anything, but informants, math and phone calls put the number up there.

But it’s weed folks…legal in many states already, just not here.

GOD FORBID.

Villeareal was seen with several KU basketball players and police surveillance had  KU players at his pad. Oh, and he was seated behind the KU bench at Sprint during a game. O.K., so he sold weed too several players. No doubt.

And yes, Jeff Withey when contacted said, "Never heard of the guy." 

I’m sure the players bought and smoked pot. It will all come out now.

This was the 2010-2011 team.

But guess what, most players and certainly black players, love the weed.

They do. If you busted every player in college or pro sports for smoking marijuana or other illegal substances you couldn’t field a roster for a single team. No way.

"Oh Glazer, you’re a jerk. Not all the players do drugs. How do you know asshole?"

Trust me, I’ve got excellent sources and I believe it to be a fact.

The players I knew from the Chiefs almost all at least smoked weed, except maybe a couple. In the case of some, to a fault. But hey, they are young men and that’s what young people do. They just do.

Sorry, EVIL DO GOODERS.

I’m talking about the ’90’s Chiefs. We all know today’s guys are clean, right?

Kansas is an elite basketball program, so this will be a ton of fun for the authorities to go after.

Headlines, messed up careers, lots of fun for them. If your name is Jim Jones and you are a clerk at Walmart, and you bought way more weed from this guy – who cares? We don’t want that guy, he’s just a victim.

But if you’re a name basketball player, "You must die, bastard, criminal." 

What a bunch of B.S.

All of us these young guys are under a ton of stress so they drink, smoke weed and some do a lot more. Is it legal? Often, no. Is it the way it is and has been for years? You bet.

In this case we need to look the other way.

Now if players are involved in selling large amounts of powder, that’s a different matter, but smoking weed? NO. Let it go, people.

I know several of you never smoked a joint, never drove drunk or did anything illegal.

Well ,God bless your boring asses.

P.S. I don’t believe you.

Maybe you did all this years ago and not now -still you did it – and years ago you were their age.

Be fair, just let it go.

    Wrong Dong Silver
    This story, coupled with a recent ESPN story about excessive pot use at the University of Oregon make the NCAA and their member institutions look like the idiots we all know the are. It’s only weed? BULLSHIT! It’s still illegal in most states. You don’t like it? THEN CHANGE THE FUCKING LAW! If these kids are under stress then they should just jerk off more. Drug use of all types is rampant in sports from high school to the pros and is certainly higher among athletes then the general population, as are domestic violence, spousal abuse, children out of wedlock, and cars with BIG RIMZ. As in the population at large blacks make up a disproportionate number of the violators. Anybody see a fucking pattern? You think that marijuana use or abuse is rampant in NASCAR, the NHL or on the PGA tour?

    Once again, and call me racist, but we hold blacks to a lower standard of behavior out of some progressive white guilt that goes back to THE GREAT SOCIETY. How’s that workin out?

    If the testing and enforcement were as frequent and aggressive as it needed to be this problem would go away. There’s no shortage of players who don’t need to get high that are ready, willing and able to take free rides through college and earn millions of dollars in salary. Most workplaces random drug test with greater frequency than the NCAA, NBA and NFL. There should be a ZERO TOLERANCE policy. Weekly mandatory testing should be required of all college and pro athletes. It’s not that hard to do.

    Much like Joe Paterno should have known that Jerry Sandusky was abusing little boys, Bill Self SHOULD KNOW that his players are GETTING HIGH. Neither you Craig, or Bill are gonna be able to sweep this under your rugs.

    Where mah weed
    at? I was promised some sweet medical grade if I supported Barry Care.

  3. Super Dave says:

    Smartman jams it up Glazers ass once again.

    Call me a racist as well but notice how few blacks are in NASCAR. It’s because most people won’t accept the fact that it really is work and they have some kick ass drug laws you will follow or else. And guess what they work as well.

    Only a law breaker and drug user such as Glazer would say,”I know several of you never smoked a joint, never drove drunk or did anything illegal. Well ,God bless your boring asses.”

    Maybe I have a boring life in your twisted mind but least I don’t have to worry about being busted for doing drugs or a DUI.

    Want life different change the laws as Smartman says.

  4. mark smith says:

    your outlook is all glazed over….
    Once again you miss the point Glazer. I smoke a little weed, many many millions of Americans do as well. So Ive no beef with your ” it’s just weed” comment. But here’s the rub. When your weed dealer is a Mexican national who is alleged to have distributed over a ton of herb is sitting courtside at games, thats a whole diferent animal. You have reminded us ad nauseam how you were out there saving the world from Mexican drug cartels. Remember, those were “the bad guys”. So we have these young players hangin with the dope man. Pretty soon they are getting that weed free. Then a lil coke, maybe a car. Next thing you know points are getting shaved, games are getting thrown. So it’s not the fact that college kids are smoking weed that makes this story a big deal. It’s the fact that a guy who runs a criminal enterprise is too close to the players and the possibilities are endless. As a former “lawman and robber of Mexican drug cartels” and a degenerate gambler to boot, I’m surprised you don’t see the problem for what it is.

    What a great group of speech makers we have here. Smartman says change the laws. Guess what smartguy, they are changing the laws. Doesn’t happen overnight. There are 17 states that have de-criminalized weed already, a feat in itself, and 8 more have it on the docket for a vote this year. Obviously it won’t pass in all of those states but little by little the veil of paranoia and old school fuddy duddy legislation is being chipped away. Will it ever be legal in Kansas? Shit no. They can’t even decide if they want to teach evolution or intelligent design to kids in school or not.

    None of that matters, and here’s where smartguy’s little speech takes on water – do you think in all of those 17 states where it’s de-criminalized that all the coaches at all the colleges in those states said to their players, “Well guys, they just passed a law that says it’s ok, so I guess you can FIRE IT UP! Whose got a bag on ’em? Come on Leroy, I know you’re holdin’!”

    Then we have Mr. Mark Smith here inventing KU point-shaving scandals that he created out of his vivid imagination. At least he admitted he gets high. Now we know what he was doing before he clicked the “post comment” button. As a user himself, he should know that most people do tend to develop some assemblance of a relationship with their dealer. Especially college kids.

    The best part about this whole story? That the 2010-2011 KU basketball team went 35-3. Not to mention they…

    Won their 8th straight Big 12 title.
    Won the Big 12 Tournament Championsip.
    Made the Elite 8.
    Had the Big 12 Player of the Year.
    Had two lottery picks and one 2nd round pick.

    Oh but they got clipped by tiny VCU in the Big Dance – see what the weed did?! Please. The ’08 National Champion team was probably smoking even more. Get a clue Stu.

    Go search Twitter (if you even know how to use it) and type in “KU basketball” – read some of the responses about this story. Nobody cares. In a society that’s numb to nearly everything that happens these days, college basketball players smoking weed doesn’t even make the needle flicker. But you boys seem to have it all figured out so maybe I’m wrong.

    Rock “Cough” Jayhawk
    Mearle. Your thoughts are haggard. Smoking weed in Kansas is illegal. It’s clear that laws were broken. Archaic as they may be they is what they is. Higher education has clearly taken on a new meaning. So it’s only weed. Give ’em a pass. So they knocked up a couple of girls. Give’em a pass. Slapped one of the girls around while they were role playing Chris Brown and Rhiana. Give ’em a pass. Can’t make it to class. Give ’em a pass. Where does it end? Laws are laws, not suggestions with exemptions for athletes or other classes.

    Fucking animals in the zoo are better at following rules than professional athletes. So much for evolution huh?

    You wanna smoke dope? Do so at your own risk or move where it’s legal. Pretty fucking simple. As for the KU basketball program. Time to pay the price beeyotches. Let’s see if Ms. Grey Little has some real stones when it comes to dealing with this. It’s obvious you don’t.

    Just Another Day In Paradise
    Former Mizzou star Aldon Smith suffers stab wounds at party
    STAR NEWS SERVICES

    Jose Luis Villegas
    Aldon Smith had 14 sacks in his rookie season with the 49’ers
    Former Mizzou and Raytown High defensive end Aldon Smith suffered stab wounds at a large house party where two other persons were shot early Saturday morning, according to the Sacramento Bee.

    Smith’s current team, the San Francisco 49ers, said in a statement that he received “minor injuries” in an incident and is recovering.

    According to the Bee, the Santa Clara sheriff’s office reported that deputies responded to a large house party shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday after receiving reports of gunshots. When deputies arrived, they found two persons with gunshot wounds and another suffering from stab wounds. All three were taken to hospitals where they were being treated for non-life threatening injuries. While a sheriff’s spokesman said he could not comment on the identity of the victims, a source told the Bee that Smith was the person who was stabbed.

    A person with knowledge of the situation also told The Associated Press that Smith suffered stab wounds. Comcast Sports Net Bay Area, citing multiple sources, reported Smith was stabbed while he attempted to break up a fight.

    “The San Francisco 49ers are aware that Aldon Smith incurred minor injuries during an incident last night,” general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement. “We are in contact with Aldon, and thankful that his injuries were not more serious and that he is recovering comfortably.

    “The 49ers are also in communication with local authorities as they gather information regarding the incident, and will reserve further comment at this time.”

    Smith, the seventh overall pick in the 2011 draft, set the franchise’s rookie record with 14 sacks and won defensive rookie of the year honors, helping the 49ers reach the NFC championship game.

    Later in January, Smith was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol in Miami Beach. Police there said Smith’s blood-alcohol level showed .194 and .176 after he was arrested at 4:33 a.m. According to the police report, other drivers had to brake abruptly to avoid hitting Smith’s car, which was swerving in and out of traffic.

    Smith played less than 50 percent of the 49ers’ snaps last season as a third-down specialist but is expected to start at right outside linebacker opposite Ahmad Brooks this year. In May he told The Bee that his goal was to become “the ultimate pass rusher, the ultimate outside linebacker.”

    “I know several of you never smoked a joint, never drove drunk or did anything illegal. Well ,God bless your boring asses. P.S. I don’t believe you.”

    – another ‘boring ass’ here. Don’t believe me, just read my entire diatribe, to follow. I never did any of the referenced. Sorry that I have been such a disappointing, disingenuous goody two-shoes enigma, variously.

    A sexagenrian (one who aside from that point was never promiscuous, even when younger), I’ve to date never smoked wacky tobacky nor the regular road to lung ruin, over the counter cigs, tho I was a young adult man the mid/late 1960’s heydey. The lush life? I’ve also never been a drinker alcohol. Why? Never felt persuaded or compelled, despite the ‘cool folk’ doing so, may they rest in peace and/or pieces, many.

    Religious compunction? Repression? Hip to be square? No X 3. Conscience. Duty. Devoir. To each their own one’s ‘own’ planet – not ‘ours’, this. I love the smell of law & order in the morning; also baseball, hot dogs, apple pie & Mopars (sorry Chevy… lawful dissent.)

    Someone once said to me, “you weren’t raised, you were bred.” Perhaps…. thanks mom, dad. Senior used to tell me: “there is going to be a(nother) revolution in this country someday. I probably won’t be around to see it young man, but you might be.” He also used to tell his matriculating son ‘what if no one in this country worked or wanted to’, entitlement mindset? Just did their ‘own thing’, whatever pursuit be it sloth, avarice or self-destruction otherwise?

    Andy Warhol said, “being born is like being kidnapped and then sold into slavery.” That party hard/fast, die young & leave an attractive corpse! crowd dissents: live a little, man – get ‘on’ the grass, dad! Grow up some, son… it’s never too late.

    Is no utopia, never was, never will be. This isn’t about liberty vs oppression. The problem is not one of too little freedom or freedom of choice, rather, it’s a matter too much: ‘self’ first & foremost, society’s requisite responsibilities seen as a hindrance ones own private island mentality, cramp to a lifestyle… respect for law / others is but for squares. It’s not a matter preference, different strokes different folks: ignore ‘that’, decide not abide ‘this’ and prevails the “I gots my rights man” mentality replaces personal responsibility/obligation.

    Peace, re-assurance, pleasure, are the goals I seek,
    I cannot crawl one inch outside my proper skin:
    I talk of love –a scholar’s parrot may talk Greek–
    But, self-imprisoned, always end where I begin.

    Smartguy sure do like to ramble about things that don’t matter. Rihanna and Chris Brown? Slapping girlfriends? Slow down and see if you can make a point in between your poor man’s Tony Clifton routine. I appreciate that refresher course on “weed being illegal.” Know what the funniest part about it still is? That nobody cares.

    Good job though. Good effort.

  10. mark smith says:

    Merle take half as much time reading as you do yapping
    I never said there was a points shaving scandal. I said a major actor in the regional drug trade and players coming in contact with said Mexican could be exposed to some shit of dubious nature. That is why it’s kind of a big deal and not just kids being kids. KU players don’t walk on water, and points shaving has nothing to do with winning or losing, or at least one isnt exclusive to the other. For a long winded judgemental prick you have the reading comprehension of a third grader. Finally, there is a big difference between a local pot dealer and someone indicted for moving around 1000 kilos. Quit getting so butt hurt because people dare mention KU and scandal in the same sentence.

  11. Merle Tagladucci says:

    Hey Mark,

    #1 – Yes you did.

    #3 – I’ll show you anyway.

    “So we have these young players hangin with the dope man. Pretty soon they are getting that weed free. Then a lil coke, maybe a car. Next thing you know points are getting shaved, games are getting thrown.”

    Get it? You weed puffing, short-term memory loss genius.

  12. mark smith says:

    ok douche canoe
    I’ll type this slow for ya. Anyone short of a borderline retard would read my original comment and recognize it as a hypothetical scenario as to why this thing is more than just a campus pot dealer selling 1/4 sacks to his buddies. So here is the part you need to read over and over until it sinks in to your bulbous head. …….

    “But here’s the rub. When your weed dealer is a Mexican national who is alleged to have distributed over a ton of herb is sitting courtside at games, thats a whole diferent animal. You have reminded us ad nauseam how you were out there saving the world from Mexican drug cartels. Remember, those were “the bad guys”. So we have these young players hangin with the dope man.

So it’s not the fact that college kids are smoking weed that makes this story a big deal. It’s the fact that a guy who runs a criminal enterprise is too close to the players and the possibilities are endless.”

    Let me know when you catch up.

  13. Merle Tagladucci says:

    Mark Mark Mark,

    Sigh. Yes I knew your post was a hypothetical. Did you think I thought you had point-shaving information the rest of the world wasn’t privy to? That’s why I treated it as a stupid hypothetical and why I am now terming it as such. I just didn’t expect my words to be met with the comprehension skills of a lamp post.

    Happy Monday pal.

    A good reason to get high
    When stardom ends in college
    Dana O’Neil [ARCHIVE]

    ESPN.com | June 22, 2012

    In four years at Kansas, Keith Langford scored 1,812 points, won three Big 12 regular-season titles and played in two Final Fours, a remarkable run of collegiate success that earned him a lifetime of free drinks and adulation in Lawrence.

    Yet for a long time after his KU career ended, the last place Langford wanted to be was Lawrence. The place where he made a name for himself had become his discomfort zone. The community that embraced him instead made him feel unworthy.

    It’s not what anyone did. They still treated him the same, asking for his autograph, slapping him on his back.

    It’s what they said, unwittingly cutting to his core with the simplest of questions:

    Why wasn’t he in the NBA?

    An honest query, those six words instead felt like daggers to Langford because, in them, he heard the implication:

    What’s wrong with you? You did so much in college. What happened? You’re a failure.

    “It becomes too much to explain,” Langford said. “On campus, in your hometown, you’re just so ashamed that, for a while, it’s easier to just not be around.”

    It’s ludicrous, really, to think that someone as accomplished as Langford could ever feel like a bust.

    Statistics tell us that only 2 percent of all high school athletes earn Division I scholarships. Only 15 will be named All-Americans (that’s including first, second and third teams) and only five to an All-Final Four team, like Langford was. Far less will play in a Final Four and an infinitesimal percentage will play in two national semifinals, as he did.

    By any normal number crunching, he is the elite of the elite. Yet on the basketball yardstick, which measures one to D-Wade, he felt like he came up short.

    If only Langford were unique.

    Ask any college coach and he will spin you a similar tale of a wildly successful college player who, for a time, didn’t come around because he was embarrassed, ashamed that his professional accolades didn’t match his collegiate accomplishments and convinced that, because he didn’t make it in the NBA, he was little more than a failure.

    “It’s NBA or nothing,” said Xavier guard Tu Holloway, who grew up in New York, where the pressure begins on the playgrounds. “If you’re not in the league, you didn’t make it. Period. That’s what people think. That’s how you feel.”

    It wasn’t always this way. There used to be a pedestal reserved for great college players, guys whose games didn’t translate into the pros or who were too vertically challenged to find a position.

    But today, from the day that kids first see their names in some version of national rankings — and that can be as early as middle school — one drumbeat sounds in their heads: Get to the NBA, make it in the league, get to the NBA, make it in the league.

    It is an all or nothing proposition that has left everything else in its wake. College careers are all but devalued and lucrative overseas deals viewed with snobbish disdain.

    “I see it all the time,” said former Michigan State All-American Mateen Cleaves. “Guys don’t want to show their face. They want to seclude themselves. It makes no sense. These guys have accomplished so much, but if you don’t make it to the NBA, you think you’re a failure.”

    Holloway can imagine how it would feel to be one of those guys. He just hopes he doesn’t experience it.

    The Xavier guard is on the precarious cusp — he’s projected as a second-rounder but could slip out of the draft depending on the whims of NBA general managers.

    “I’m nervous,” he admitted. “I believe even if I’m not drafted I’ll get phone calls, but I don’t want my family to worry. I know how everyone envisions how their life can be different, and I don’t want them to watch the draft and be devastated.”

    It is those external pressures, sometimes even more than the internal ones, that make an undrafted reality so difficult to accept.

    Guys come up in their neighborhoods, pegged as future stars at a young age. The attention intensifies through high school, especially if they’re tabbed an All-American, and reaches a crescendo in college, where friends, family and fans often presume a direct proportion between collegiate success and NBA riches.

    If only it worked that way.

    “People ask me all the time, ‘You averaged 20 points per game, what happened?'” former Kansas State guard Jacob Pullen said.

    What happened, players quickly learn, could be any of a number of things — too short, too slow, too many people at your position, too little need for your talents on a particular team. After the first few picks, the ins and outs of a draft are rarely so neat and tidy as he who played best in college wins.

    But no one wants to hear about the business of basketball, not when it’s much easier to unilaterally declare a player a flop.

    “We live in a very opinionated world,” Cleaves said. “I go on Twitter and almost every time, someone will hit me with, ‘Oh you’re a bust. You didn’t do nothing in the NBA.”

    A bust.

    A player who three times was named a college All-American, who earned most outstanding player honors at the Final Four and who still ranks atop the Big Ten record books for assists in a game, a season and a career.

    That’s a bust?

    “I laugh about it now,” said Cleaves, a TV analyst for the CBS Sports Network.

    But it’s not always so easy to laugh. The players get as wrapped up in what they are “supposed to do” as the outsiders, losing sight of not only the NBA reality but also of what they’ve already accomplished.

    It’s easy to understand why. Langford remembers his first day on the Kansas campus. He was playing in a pickup game with future teammates and former pros. He made a sweet pass, one that Drew Gooden immediately labeled a “league pass.”

    One season and a Final Four run later, Gooden punched his ticket with a No. 4 pick to the NBA. So when the following year Langford helped take the Jayhawks back to the Final Four, everyone assumed his turn was coming.

    “The message boards were on fire,” he said. “All your peers around you are first-rounders. You’re playing against guys like Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony and they’re first-rounders, so everyone’s like, ‘OK, he will be, too.’ Then it says you’re the 46th pick projected or whatever and people start asking, ‘What’s wrong with him?’ It gets overwhelming.”

    Langford was never drafted and for a long time believed he was, in fact, a failure, swimming through what he referred to as “basketball purgatory,” jumping from D-League teams to the USBL and back again.

    He blamed his agent, blamed the system, blamed everyone but himself and, worse, turned up his nose at the thought of playing overseas. He turned down more than one contract in Europe, convinced he could latch on in the NBA.

    Finally in debt after taking a loan from his agent, he sat down with an overseas agent and actually listened. He signed his first overseas contract.

    “It wasn’t until I got over there that I finally bought in,” Langford said. “That’s when I realized I’m still a professional basketball player.”

    Not that everyone else sees it that way.

    After seven years of sewing together a pretty steady and lucrative overseas career — he’s played in Italy, Moscow and Tel Aviv — Langford still is treated like a semipro.

    “I could walk in to talk to a couple hundred kids and if you picked any guy who was playing for the NBA minimum, he’d be the one, the guy they think they’re supposed to listen to,” Langford said. “Or someone will ask me if I want to work a camp to make a little extra money. I want to yell, ‘Hey, I’m a millionaire, too,’ but it’s not worth explaining. Guys ask me all the time, ‘Don’t you want to go pro? I’m like, ‘Man, I am a pro.’ But it’s just NBA or nothing.”

    That’s the real kick, the reality that most every player eventually comes to — even if outsiders don’t. The NBA isn’t the only professional basketball avenue and it should not be held as the lone barometer for success.

    Pullen could have waited to see if an NBA team decided to sign him, but with the lockout looming he instead went to Italy, where he flourished.

    Playing for Pallacanestro Biella, Pullen finished fifth in the league in scoring. He’ll work out this summer for NBA teams and perhaps try to land here, but he’s wised up. If the choice is an NBA minimum salary versus a hefty deal in Italy, he’ll say ciao in a heartbeat.

    “The money is green at the end of the day,” Pullen said. “I can come home, buy the same nice car, the same nice house. Sure, I have dreams of playing in the NBA, but I also have dreams of taking care of my family.”

    Eventually most players come to terms with all of it. They learn to ignore the critics and be proud of what they accomplished in college and what they are accomplishing as pros, whatever professional avenue that might be. They go back to campus, heads held high.

    In other words, they grow up.

    But with the draft looming, they know that someone else will soon be moping in their shoes. He will question his worth and ignore his successes.

    And from the vantage point of a few years down the road, they have one simple bit of advice:

    “Don’t hold your head down for nothing,” Cleaves said. “You went to college. You got your degree or you had some sort of success. There is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of. Man, we won. We’re winners.”

    Editor’s Note: Andy Katz recalls 10 players who had a major impact in college, but whose skills simply didn’t translate to the NBA.

    The dealer is the man with the love grass in his hand
    When this guy isn’t court side at Allen Field house, he’s contribution to the pain of millions by dealing death. He’s close to young, impressionable men who are idolized for their hand-to-eye coordination and speed rather than their superior intellegence.

    Yeah, skip over it. It’s the humane thing to do. How’d that work out for Penn State?

  16. Merle Tagladucci says:

    Outstanding work Orphan. Looks like fans are the ones skipping over it, laughing at people making a big deal out of college kids smoking weed – but hey let’s throw it in the same sentence as Sandusky’s cronies protecting him because he liked to rape small boys. They’re both so comparable. Right? Let’s just lay our cards out on the table here and acknowledge the 800 lb gorilla in the room – How in the WORLD are you and Mark Smith posting these comments from the Psych ward at Two Rivers? However you’re doing it, it’s impressive and worthy of recognition. Did you swipe Johnson’s keys again? He’s gonna put the white coat on you again when he finds out!

    Hello!

    some facts
    1. KU has one of the best bball teams in college basketball. Self is the best. Kids smoking weed in college
    is not new…its been going on for decades. People selling tons of weed break the law because they
    are profiting off it…they go to jail…for a long time. That’s the game and how it’s played. Smoke your weed..
    don’t sell it…its incredible as a non addictive pain killer…people with cancer/aids etc. smoke it to
    save their lives. When do we wake up.
    2. KU is a non story. The big story and the one that I wrote about almost 9 months ago was the huge
    money thats coming into MU since the switch to the sec. 200 million bucks! Yes…and guess who
    owns property that the university wants? The sports fund kicked in30 million dollars…and I was
    on that story almost a year ago. MU switch to the sec has been the single biggest story in
    college in this area. MU is on a roll. KU needs a game changer. Hopefully charlie can bring them
    back in football…they need it to make it thru the upcoming lean economic years. Charlies a really
    cool guy…maybe he’s the answer…it would be great to see ku beat the hell out of texas/tech/and
    ou….we can only wish.
    3. Obama said today that he wants to rethink the drug war. Its been a losing war for over 40 years.
    weed is avaialble everywhere…states accept the growing and smoking of it…it can be taxed.
    Why spend 100 billion dollars a year putting drug users in prison…breaking up families…
    killing a kids future over some coke or weed. We need to rethink what we do. Make it
    legal…reduce the costs of keeping it illegal…get the corruption out of it. I know a 17 year
    old kid who’s life is ruined because they caught him with 2 bags of weed. Why? And what
    for. It’s time to reevaluate the priorties in america. We have to get out of the box and come up
    with rational decisions to do what many judges/police/law enforcement etc. have advocated for
    years. the laws are a waste of time…someone do something!!!!!!
    4. Romneys guy said aca was not a tax…it was a penalty. Romney needs to clean house.
    That takes away his claim that aca is a large tax increase. If you are a conservative…you have
    to agree with me that personal responsbility is important today. 48% of the people without
    insurance can afford to buy it…but don’t which means we as taxpayers have to pick up the
    bill. I know a guy in desoto with a 2 million dollar home and no health insurance…daughter
    had a very rough pregnancy and ran up a $400,000 bill at OVPRMC…and gueess what….the
    taxpayers got stung on this deal. It’s not a tax…its a penalty in my book…and if you don’t
    hav e insurance and you can afford to buy it…you either don’t get the care or you pay for
    it…i’m sick of freeloaders…whether its the guy without insurance or the oil companies..or the
    agri biz…the corporations rolling a trillion dollars a year offshore and not paying taxes.
    We need to wake up…our boat is sailing…get on it!!!!!!

    @Merle
    The kids smoking the weed is not important, that’s just a symptom of the problem. Lots of questionable money and people get very close to college athletic programs. Mostly it gets swept under the rug. If this dealer has been hanging around the fringes, mixed in with the Lew Perkins-era crimes, it needs a full investigation.

    Seems to be a lot of drug dealing cases popping up in college sports this year. Since the media has already painted all the players on KU’s team by having no names, they deserve an investigation so they aren’t scapegoated.

    I guess as long as the predators hanging around college athletics ain’t butt fuckin’ no one, all’s well.

    Most scandals these days have to have big gnarly teeth to make huge headlines. The Star tried to sell this as a big gnarly scandal and the public yawned. If the investigation uncovers more teeth then they might have their headline. Until then most people shrug and look at it as just another group of basketball players smoking herb.
