Cromartie Speaks Against NFL’s Weed Policy
Last week, Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie was on some show that no one has ever heard of called This is 50.
During the interview, Cromartie gave an honest opinion when asked about the NFL’s drug policy, specifically marijuana:
“They need to just let it go,” said Cromartie. “We’re just going to do it anyway. They just need to let it go. They need to go ahead and say, ‘Ya’ll go ahead, smoke it, do what you need to do.’”
Cromartie spoke unfiltered and honestly but it’s probably not the best answer, especially right now with it being a hot topic.
Both Denver and Seattle played in the Super Bowl, teams from the only two states that have legalized the recreational use of marijuana.
Commissioner Roger Goodell has said in recent weeks that the League would conform to the advances of medicine technology and did not rule out the idea of one day making it legal.
But in this circumstance, perhaps Cromardie should’ve given a ‘I have no opinion at this time.’ And if you think I’m being too harsh, then why did he go to Twitter shortly after to let us know that he doesn’t smoke it but other players should be allowed to?
The interview that I did on the weed policy, I never said We’re I said tht Players will smoke anyway. I don’t smoke so I don’t care about it

And for my followers I don’t smoke and I haven’t smoked anything in my life. I never seen the need too. — ANTONIO CROMARTIE (@CRO31) February 5, 2014
Cromartie has said in interviews that he’s most likely going to be a free agent come March. If you could be unemployed within the next month, just probably best to stay away from this topic as a whole, isn’t it?
Not saying he’s right or wrong, just that it’s obvious that now Cromartie regrets being so honest.
