RUSH: NFL Admits They Can’t Police Pot Use Among Players

RUSH: But forget all that. Forget all that. Just, “NFL Set to Loosen Pot Policy.” What does that say just by itself? (interruption) Snerdley says they don’t care much about it now. But it’s more than that. It’s an admission that they can’t police it. Or it’s an admission they don’t find anything wrong with it or find less wrong with it. I don’t know.
