    Right. So, someone who is 65 (senior citizen) was smoking weed and listening to actual good music

    Way Before you listened to mumble rap while chewing an edible gummy worm ; )

    Wha????

    He don't give a **** about any trumpet-playing band!!!

    I smoked my first one in 1967 while listening to Purple Haze. My best friend's older brother had bought it, and it was, like, psychedelic baby! He went on to form a band that had some limited success with "Phasors on Stun". I went from their house to dinner at the golf club with my parents. The Doors were on Ed Sullivan doing Light My Fire. It was all just so...... groovy, baby!

    But you try to tell that to kids these days, and......

    According to the BBC. There is very little information but it looks as as he took cannabis for medical purposes, apparently this is legal in Florida where he lives.

    The tour pros should speak up in defense of Matt.

    Yea right. No one would do this, they’re mainly right wing Christians stuck in the Middle Ages socially (at least that’s their public face) and wouldn’t want to risk their “reputations”

    edgy stuff... if your co worker broke your workplace rules that everyone else follows you suggest they all go to bat for him just because? then suggest theyre cowards for not and then cast aspersions as to their religious backgrounds and political leanings?? i dont think i can handle all your tolerance in 1 sitting. thanks for sharing though

    Funny how weed is such a problem for the tour ... but boozing isn't

    Also funny how nobody seems to have a problem with ‘therapeutic exemption’ for many players taking stimulants (adderall, Ritalin, vuvanse) or benzos (Xanax Valium klonopin) DURING THE ROUNDS OF PLAY AT THE ACTUAL COMPETITION but god forbid a player does something off the course, unless it’s alcohol of course. See Steven bowditch etc

    Speak for yourself. I’m of the stance that such drugs should be only prescribed in the most extreme examples. Which would be low or non functioning folks in society. Way too many are on such and do it to just numb the edge of their issues rather than meet them and deal. I guarantee I’m a person with enough anxiety issues that I could get a prescription written for anything. But I refuse. People are always looking for the easy way. Take the hard road and fight , there’s no progress to be made while addled, only passing the time until death.

    I could tell you of several cases of hard drug users that use these type drugs as crutches to get between court dates and pass tests. They say “ I’m good I’ve got a script for these “. And It’s all good.

    Everyone is different. Your assertion that all people are weak that use prescriptions to help is careless. You're lucky you can cope. Some can't. It does not make them inferior and you superior. Just different.

    We will just agree to disagree on that. I typed a longer response and deleted it. In no way consider myself better than anyone else who truly has an issue they are struggling to work on. I do however know and abhor people who use these type drugs in a semi recreational manner. To escape reality . The amount of folks on one thing or another in this vein is unbelievable. And the vast majority have no clue what real anxiety is like. As in anxiety that has a rooted reason for being , through means of traumatic experiences etc .

    But I agree on the different part. That’s for sure.

    Chronic pain and PTSD are no joke. I have both. If medical marijuana can reduce or eliminate the use of opioids for pain. That's a good thing.

    It's always the journeyman types that ends up taking the fall for these kinds of rule infractions. The PGA could care less about the likes of Matt Every. You can bet none of the big names on tour will bother to speak up for him either.

    DJ was suspended, by all accounts. You can’t really call him a journeyman.

    I don’t understand some of you.

    DJ was using and testing positive for cocaine......multiple times.

    I know this was the rumor of the day, and people love to repeat it, but has anyone ever seen any actual proof of it? You seem pretty confident in the assertion, can you provide some evidence to back it up? If not, do t you think it would be better to at least use words like “allegedly” “supposedly” or “possibly”, something to share in your uncertainty, as opposed to presenting it as a statement of fact? As far as I know, there has never been a confirmation, it was only a rumor because society these days love rumors and think they have a right to know ever second of someone’s life.

    Hardly a rumor. Multiple test failures, multiple suspensions.

    Now, maybe the sources got it completely wrong (PGA Tour didn't announce about the tests), but it's never really been debated since that news came out.

    In fairness, the PGA Tour announced the 6 month "suspension" in 2014 was voluntary, so there is a point there that it wasn't a real suspension. Effect is the same, but maybe only the previous suspension and the "voluntary leave".
