NFL Lineman with 157 lbs of pot. I have sympathy for guys with chronic pain using marijuana. The data doesn't support the idea that it helps them with their pain, but they think it does, and that in itself is part of pain management. People believe a lot of inaccurate things, and we have to look at the level of damage.
People outside the mental health field don't get it about the higher risk for psychotic disorders and worse outcomes for anxiety and affective disorders with marijuana use, but I understand that not everyone follows the science on these things closely. Most people who use, use occasionally, and have little difficulty. We all know some, whether we know it or not. The minority who use and rapidly become heavy users are invisible to the rest of us. Their lives fall apart, but we don't see those, much as we do not apprehend high-functioning alcoholics, though they are all around us.
But 157 lbs, when you are drawing an NFL salary? No excuse for that.
