Picking talent or character

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; And the list on the opposite end...I never said it can't work, only the odds say it likely won't. Many people win the biggest stuffed animal every year playing the ring toss at a fair. I'm not one of them. ...

And the list on the opposite end...I never said it can't work, only the odds say it likely won't. Many people win the biggest stuffed animal every year playing the ring toss at a fair. I'm not one of them. Odds say I will not win. Better to do market research and buy the best I can get for my coin on Amazon or Ebay.

I disagree, it probably gives him way more insight than you and me combined.

I find it odd Law Enforcement seems to be opposed to legalizing it. Perhaps it creates job security by keeping it legal. If it was a regulated commodity like alcohol the illegal drug based operations which create violent crimes evaporate. The example is too akin to prohibition and bootlegging.

I won't go on further, but I am more than willing to debate anyone in the politics section.
First off, there is far larger things to worry about than marijuana in LE. But that doesn't mean its ignored. So job security comes from many different and serious acts that mankind does to themselves and others.

Second, I'm not blasting anyone who believes it should be legalized. I have my reasons based on my experience in the last 14 years. And I'm sure you have your own reasons and opinions.

My deal is that the kid knew he had a combine coming up and he chose to put his draft status and career in question knowing he would be tested. That to me shows poor judgment and a lack of self discipline.

He has much more to lose and he chose to smoke dope.

I'm not saying he's a bad person, I'm saying he lacks good judgment.

If I had the chance to make millions living my dream, the last thing I would do is put it in danger by doing something that I know could put that in danger.

Pro marijuana or not, I don't see a logical argument for that choice.

If I had the chance to make millions and one of the stipulations was not to eat pizza, especially if I knew they had a pizza test, I wouldn't even go around a restaurant that served it. And I love pizza.
