Suspended for 3 months for testing positive for pot. Little harsh in my opinion. A warning should have been sufficient for the first offense.

    Not the first offense, plus Robert has admitted for years that use caused him problems in past.

    The problem with pot is that it stays in your system too long. IDK if there is anyway to measure the amount of THC like alcohol breathalyzer for people driving or not. What amount is permissible and what amount is not.?? That is going to be the problem with drug legalization . Will employers put up with a positive blood test?? You come to work with alcohol in your system and most places fire you. You get pulled over driving..you get arrested . Will be interesting how it pans out. I'm ok with legalization and I personally can't stand a THC buzz...but doesn't bother me if others smoke or eat it around me.

    Dumb rule. Its legal in a lot of states and what players do in their personal time shouldnt be up to the USGA and their regime to interrupt.

    Nothing to do with the USGA. I believe it is part of the golf in the Olympics testing with wada.

    The problem is that it should not be illegal. Silly for someone to be suspended for consuming a plant.

    Alcohol is legal...but you can still be arrested for driving under the influence....and employers set their own threshold for what they will tolerate. People take legal substances and abuse them all the time. I could see where sports would quit testing for it. Maybe??

    no drinking for 12 hours before your shift and yes they can test for that. Physicals 4 times a year and mandatory 25 hours with therapists annually. its also a dangerous 6 figure job with humongous burnout and depression/suicide rate

    You really can't compare alcohol impairment with being high. Not even remotely close.** When you get high, you don't lose control of your faculties. In fact, if you don't enjoy the high, all you need to do is eat something and you lose it. (not the case with edibles and def not with booze)**
    Also vaporizing or smoking cannabis has many health benefits which should be recognized as alternatives to Big Pharma... Cannabis over Opioids all day, everyday..
    In canada, many drug plans are recognizing the use of cannabis as an alternative to harmful pharma meds.

    Yikes no... not even close. DUIs while high have surpassed DUIs because of alcohol. Also marijuana today has anywhere from 30 to 300 times the THC of marijuana from the late 70s early 80s. Have been linked to extreme depression and various forms of psychosis /schizophrenia.

    Actually you're not even close. DUI's for impaired while high, have no accuracy. Canadian police dept's have adopted screenings that are proven failures. Cannabis from the 70's had about 15% THC, todays cannabis at max is about 27%. It also means people aren't smoking "Bob Marley" joints.. Further, there is proof that cannabis actually helps to alleviate various forms of psychosis, including schizophrenia, depression as well as various forms of neurological conditions such as epilepsy in that they can reduce or eliminate seizures.
    US government and Big Pharma, want you to believe that it's bad and their drugs are good.....
