Well, that explains the hair. You just know he was smoking that surreal hydroponic stuff they grow in the winter in Minnesota, but now I'm sure he's all natural, thanks to a couple of Raider fans in Humboldt.

I wonder how soon the NFL will slap a drug test on Randy? Hopefully he is better at acing drug tests than his pal Onterrio Smith. TBH - love the pic in that link! And as my random question of the day...is your name in ref. to the Serbian secret society that spawned WWI by assassinating the Archduke Franz Ferdinand?

Stirling Moss is old enough and cool enough to have earned the right to a little doob every now and then, so cut him some slack. Oh, that Moss. Never mind.

Heh: "bong rips." Takes me back.

Just curious, but could he be convicted for using pot or something by openly admitting to having used it?

There really isn't a law against doing drugs. The laws are against possessing them. And really, our last two Presidents belong in jail with Randy if anyone wants to prosecute past drug use. I was under the impression that the NFL could test someone more frequently with probable cause. An admission of drug use sure seems like a good reason to test Moss more frequently.

Whoa , what a news flash . No wonder he always looks sleepy . You would think he'd be a little more mellowed out though .... After originally signing a letter of intent to play college football with Notre Dame in 1995, Moss took part in a racially-charged fight at his high school that left a person (Ernest Johnson) hospitalized. He pled guilty to battery and received probation and a 30-day suspended jail sentence. Notre Dame revoked his scholarship, but this setback did not stop another high profile college football program from giving him a chance. Notre Dame officials suggested Florida State due to the esteemed repuation of its coach, Bobby Bowden, for handling troubled players. However, because of his signed letter of intent at Notre Dame, the NCAA considered him a transfer student, which made him ineligible to play for the Seminoles in the 1995 football season. He was redshirted in his freshman season. In 1996, Moss tested positive for smoking marijuana, violating his probation, and was let go by Florida State. He served 30 days in jail for the probation violation. On September 24, 2002 in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota, Moss was driving in his Lexus and was preparing to do an illegal turn. A city worker saw what Moss was trying to do. She stood in front of his car and was ordering him to stop. However, Moss didn't stop his car until she fell on the ground. Moss was originally charged with Suspicion of Assault with a Deadly Weapon which is a felony and a misdemeanor marijuana possession. Moss pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor traffic violation. He was ordered to pay a $1,200 fine and perform 40 hours of community service. he got into an argument and shoving match with Libby Offutt, his girlfriend and now mother of his two children. The two were charged with domestic battery, with the charges later dropped. Controversy also returned that season, kicking off a series of misconducts. Frustrated late in a playoff loss at St. Louis, Moss squirted an official with a water bottle and the NFL fined him $40,000, which was later reduced to $25,000. That incident followed a $10,000 fine in November for verbally abusing an official.

So, Moss was in a fight as a kid, got caught smoking marijuana, and had a misdemeanor traffic violation. Wow, a regular menace to society.

I expect Rcade to show up and start condemning Moss post-haste

So Moss has smoked weed? This is supposed to be news? lol

posted by daddisamm at 06:50 PM on August 18

The surprise would be if he said he's never smoked . I wonder if he's a coach on snoop's team ?

posted by evil empire at 08:07 PM on August 18

Didnt Snoop say last year that he quit smoking weed now that he is coaching youth football? I have got to try and find that story...

posted by daddisamm at 08:47 PM on August 18

I wonder if he's a coach on snoop's team ? Moss will coach the other team(gotta make sure both sides are equaly impaired)just to keep it fair for the kids sake.

Randy, come down to San Jose and get a 32 oz bottle of "Strip" at a head shop called "Up in Smoke." Refrain from smoking 48 hours before your test (I personally doubled it to 96 hours). Drink "Strip" two hours before your test. I passed; so can you. And I think you can afford the $39.95 + tax a little better than I can. PS I would bet if you look "Strip" is available somewhere in Oakland, or at least Berkeley.

c'mon randy moss smoked weed, who hasn't i'm a bears fan and i'd still rip bongs with that viking/raider anytime.

I expect Rcade to show up and start condemning Moss post-haste Marijuana should be legal. I think the NFL has no business testing for it in the first place, unless the league also starts testing for alcohol, cigarettes, and coffee. Personally calling me out like this, in a discussion where I haven't participated, is obnoxious. The beef you're carrying against me is a year old. Work a little more fiber into your diet and you might be able to get rid of it.

posted by rcade at 07:43 AM on August 19

I am not shure if marijuana should legal, but I do know that this story is a shameless attempt to get ratings.

posted by daddisamm at 08:04 AM on August 19

oops--not sure

posted by daddisamm at 08:05 AM on August 19

Funny thing is he was caught in 2002 with a misdemeanor marijuana possession. And even earlier in '96 he tested positive for smoking marijuana, violating his probation, and was let go by Florida State. He served 30 days in jail for the probation violation. So why is this news ? Or did he just remember that he smoked it . And how is it he hasn't been tested for drugs yet Ricky Williams is being tested regularly now cuz he admitted smoking ?

posted by evil empire at 08:19 AM on August 19

I think the players that are clearly smoking weed should not be tested by league. That way everyone can avoid the embarrasment and rigamarole surrounding a substance that clearly isn't much a performance affector. Randy can smoke his weed and still catch 1,000 yards, and Ricky can rush for 1,500 and smoke his weed - and no one gets their panties in a bunch over nothing. Of course, clearly I'm biased.

posted by WeedyMcSmokey at 08:43 AM on August 19

Ditto

posted by Drallig9399 at 08:58 AM on August 19

Agreed.........anyone experienced in both marijuana and alcohol use knows alcohol is the much more dangerous of the two.........yet the NFL is not testing for it. That means Moss, Williams et al could be downing a fifth of Jack Daniels every evening and continue to play.

Most foriegn substances that one put in thier body will have some bad effect on them sooner or later. This goes for pretty much everything including weed, booze, food etc. You can make the case that pretty anything is bad for your health. I drank booze and smoked "weed" in my younger days. I really dont have the desire or need to do that anymore. If I was told that "pot" would help me during chemo-I may try it. However it is illeagal as a "rec" and I feel that employers have the right to test for it now. Even if it were legal, some occupations could make a case for testing for pot usage. For example: anybody that drives a train, plane or a ship. However, the NFL testing program for "rec" drugs is a joke as you have to be really stupid to get caught (they test once a year and you know when its coming.) I am pretty much anti drung these days, but we need to take a look at the whole picture. What's realistic and what isnt when it come to drug policys in pro sports.

posted by daddisamm at 09:30 AM on August 19

Why not get every player on a pro franchise to: smoke up and get tested positive for d'big Ganga-mon. Unable to suspend the entire league, perhaps this much of the Governmental hypocrisy that grouped weed-smoking as 'An evil, damaging drug' nearly one hundred years ago will be seen for what it is[and isn't]. Pro Sports, then, will quit making it an issue. This might then bring the unbelievablly inept laws over marijuana use in this country into reasonable change (at least reflective of the laws for alcohol use), and by decriminalizing and taxing, force a few drug lords to hang it up in the process... Well, I don't think it's wrong to dream--huh?

As a total aside: why the all-caps name in the front-page post? Did Randy change his name to some acronym? Mobile Offensive Super Stoner?
