Denying University of Michigan football recruit, Kelly Baraka, the
opportunity to play at the school for smoking marijuana is ridiculous and
hypocritical. Why not prohibit any player from participating in football for
using alcohol or tobacco, two far more dangerous and deadly drugs?

Why doesn't the university screen players on a regular basis for these
drugs? If it did, chances are the U-M football team would lose many players.

When will the hysteria in this country over marijuana use end?
