With another Bengals player and legal problems. Jerome Simpson was indicted on drug charges today in Covington, Ky. The indictment charges Simpson with trafficking in more than eight ounces and less than five pounds of marijuana, a felony. Simpson could face one to five years in prison if convicted.

Shame too, Cincy had promising draft, and 2011 campaign.
Still the biggest head-scratcher to me is how Marvin Lewis, with the track record of players under his watch getting into trouble with the law...yet nobody is asking for his resignation.
Puzzling.

They would if he hadn't gotten the team into the playoffs.

So....if your Marvin Lewis, just hold a team meeting every year, tell them "listen guys...I dont care what you do off the field...just get us to the playoffs. Win or lose I'll keep my job, and you guys can continue your shenanigans without consequence"
Sounds like a good deal, sorry Marv...on the surface I had you pegged as incompetent.

Sam Hurd is probably destined to become a Bengal. LOL!

Being a Michigan fan (not that has anything to do with the NFL) I must blame the state of Ohio.

Ah come on man it's just a little marry jane, it's not like it's meth or cocaine, I think the GOV. is walking a fine line with marijuana and need to either legalize it or do away with all the prescription uses and no half way crap.

IMO if they would legalize it like they finally did alcohol they stand to gain from the taxes and take the criminal aspect of trafficking away and focus on the harder drugs and quit wasting task forces time and tax payers money. Decriminalize it and focus on the the drugs that kill instead of one that actually help some people.

Too logical.

That line of thinking will confuse most Americans, the majority just like to be told what to do, how to live and what to believe.

Marijuana is to easy to grow, and if government makes it legal, it would not be able to completely regulate it to collect all the income...there would be more money for the justice system if it stays illegal.

I think it would be just like alcohol after prohibition, of course there are still a few moonshiners around but not nearly the amount as before prohibition and the Government reaps the rewards with it's hand in the manufacture, distribution and sales of it. Why mess with growing it assuming laws would be similar to bootlegging as they are now if you can legally get it and simply pay taxes and keep the gov. happy and off your butt, but what do I know.

Seems to work over in Amsterdam if the US would follow suit.
