Marijuana? Really? Hasn't the USA inflicted enough damage on individuals, our country, and the world over this stupid "drug"? Geez; let Hamburger and anybody else who wants to smoke it. Did Mickey Mantle ever get released for alcohol use? What's the difference?!!

To lump pot into the class as PEDs (50 game suspension) is Bud Selig old school. Heck, the stuff is legal in two MLB states: Colorado and Seattle...I get the whole professional sports role model thing. But, those who know Burger will not think twice about having this guy set an example for their offspring. Just the fact that he did not quit on himself. Also, he could have signed with the Twins earlier, but would not quit on his Saints teammates. Thanks to the Saints and Twins to give a guy another shot.
