Super Sunday of highlights from Marijuana Law, Policy and Reform

As some readers may already know, my Marijuana Law, Policy and Reform blog is really super interesting now that great set of guest-bloggers adding their insights and perspectives.  And, as anyone who has been keeping up with the broader news the last, discussion of marijuana issues has been super dynamic with the biggest annual US sporting event involving two teams from states at the forefront of marijuana reform.  So, I figured I could gear up for the big game not only with a new post at MLP&R that provides lots of Super Sunday stories about marijuana and the Super Bowl, but also with another of my usual reviews of some of recent posts from MLP&R, many of which have a football theme and many of which should also be of interest to sentencing fans:

Gotta Love Pete Carroll's remarks about medicinal pot for NFL players --- the NFL should let players use it if it helps them.

When a popular coach, who has excelled at the collegiate level and in the NFL, makes common-sense remarks like this about a once-stigmatized drug, we can see palpable erosion in our society of the foundation of hysteria and nonsense upon which marijuana prohibition was built.

Is Bill Otis aware that between 50 and 60% of NFL players admit using marijuana? Bill Otis' snarky, unfunny remark exemplifies the mindset of those who support keeping marijuana illegal at all costs --- a mindset of mental midgets.
