Sports suffers from double standard when comparing marijuana, alcohol

Before the NFL Scouting Combine, University of Florida star Percy Harvin should have gotten drunk out of his gourd, puked on his shoes and passed out behind the wheel of his car.
If only he had done that instead of hypothetically smoking a marijuana joint and perhaps laughing uncontrollably at The Three Stooges Meet Hercules then maybe Pro Football Weekly would not be calling Harvin the biggest risk in the upcoming NFL draft.

Sadly, this is the confounding, contradictory world we live in — a world where Harvin would be more appealing to NFL teams if he’d been arrested for a police-confirmed DUI than he is now because of an unproven Internet report that he tested positive for marijuana at the Combine.
