MARK CUBAN: “I’VE INHALED”

May 22, 2008

 

THIS GUY HAS SMOKED POT?

Appearing on the Dan Patrick radio show today, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban admitted he would be reluctant to discipline Mavs forward Josh Howard for using marijuana because of his own past use of the drug.

Patrick: Do you care if he smokes pot?

Cuban: I’d be a hypocrite if I said ‘yes’ because I’ve inhaled, and when I inhaled I coughed a couple lungs out. And so I was never a big fan of smoking, but I’ve tried it. I can’t look at somebody and say, ‘That’s just terrible…’  Again, I’d just be hypocritical if I said, ‘Josh, smoking pot is just the worst thing you could possibly do.’

NBA PLAYER ADMITS HE SMOKES MARIJUANA

April 26, 2008

Dallas Mavericks forward Josh Howard admitted today that he smokes marijuana in the off season.

Although his timing was certainly poor (the Mavericks are down 2 games to none to New Orleans in the NBA playoffs and play tonight) Howard certainly picked the right venue to admit his drug use. Howard made his revelations on the Michael Irvin Radio Show in Dallas. Irvin, the former Dallas Cowboys receiver, has a long and storied history of partying and drug use-including a conviction on cocaine charges.

Howard told Irvin about his off season marijuana use and said,

“I don’t think that’s stopping me from doing my job.” Howard added, “I think that everybody in the media world and in the sports world knows that NBA players do smoke marijuana.”

Howard is the Mavericks second leading scorer and was an All Star in 2007.

Despite Howard’s admitted use of marijuana, there appears to be little the league can do to punish him. NBA players are required to undergo four random tests every season between Oct. 1 and June 30. But a player who tests positive for marijuana is not subjected to his first five-game suspension — or even public knowledge he has failed a drug test — until his third failed test. There is also no provision in the CBA to punish a player who simply admits to drug use.

Outspoken Dallas owner Mark Cuban says the club will deal with Howard internally.

“We won’t make it public,” Cuban said. “But we’ll deal it. We’ll do what we need to do and deal with it internally and then that’s it.”

MASS SMOKE IN AT UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO

April 21, 2008

 

A group of 10,000 people collectively lit up to celebrate 4/20 at the University of Colorado yesterday.

MOVIE CELEBRATES 4/20

April 20, 2008

 

Today is April 20th- 4/20. It’s the unofficial holiday of pot smokers everywhere.

There are a multitude of theories on the origin of the term “4:20.” The most popular is a group of teenagers at San Rafael High School in California during the 70’s would meet every day at a statue of Louis Pasteur. At 4:20 p.m. every day they would light up and smoke marijuana at that location. Another theory is that 4:20 refers to a California Criminal Code on marijuana use.

In any event, 4/20 is becoming more and more of an OFFICIAL holiday in some areas.

This is the crowd that gathered in Santa Cruz, California last year to celebrate 4/20 and smoke marijuana.

 

This year’s crowd is predicted to be even bigger. In Santa Cruz (and a lot of other American cities) 4/20 has evolved into a counterculture holiday where people gather to consume and celebrate marijuana.

There’s even an official movie of 4/20. It’s called “Super High Me.”

There are 1349 different screenings of the movie “Super High Me” going on today throughout America. There’s undoubtedly a location where the movie is showing in your area.
