In the movie Half Baked, Bob Saget famously schooled Thurgood on the merits of why weed is not a real drug, telling him, “I used to suck dick for coke. You ever suck some dick for marijuana?” It’s an effective argument to a debate that continues to rage. A fellow willing to suck some dick for a particular drug has become the universal standard for whether or not that drug is classified as a “real” drug. Picturing Saget on his knees in some scummy alley slobing down on some knob validates coke a real drug.
In Menace II Society, a crackhead initially offers O-Dog some double cheeseburgers for some rock. When he’s denied, he takes it a few million steps further, offering up a little skull instead, “Man I’ll suck yo dick.” When pressed to repeat what he had just said, he did not back down,” I said I suck yo dick.” We was shot and killed. That makes crack a REAL fucking drug.
Apparently the UFC’s VP for Regulatory Affairs, Marc Ranter never saw those classic scenes, because he told MMAFighting that Dave Herman’s punishment for pissing hot for weed could likely send his ass to rehab:
“We feel very strongly that there’s a big difference between PED’s [performance-enhancing drugs] and marijuana,” Ratner said. “We think the commissions do a good job with PEDs, but we think with marijuana there should be some form of rehab involved, going through that kind of process and learning about it.
“Other sports have a difference between PEDs and recreational drugs.”
”Ratner said he expects Herman to be suspended for ‘months,’ while also having to go through some kind of rehab program.”
It’s amazing that in this day and age we still get all up in arms over the 420. The UFC stocks the TUF house with more booze than a Tijuana whorehouse and they’re going to take the high ground on weed? It’s not only hypocritical, it’s nonsensical. Yes, it’s illegal and even in the states where it’s not, it’s against the rules. So Herman likes to toke, but he’s a grown man who knows the rules, and he deserves whatever form of discipline he receives. But sending him to rehab like he’s a 13 year old who got caught with a roach? This shit is getting out of control.
Oh yeah, Stephan Bonnar will receive a one year suspension for popping for steroids. However, his retirement kind of just adds to the silliness of the whole situation.
