During a FOX Sports podcast with former NFL linebacker Scott Fujita, Ayanbadejo didn’t disclose which team it was, and he didn’t name names.

    Cannabis only impairs performance for about the first 10-15 minutes, and ONLY when smoked. This is due to the carcinogens in the smoke.

This is merely more of the charade to script that “OMG” big burly football players MIGHT be able to handle pot. If this is the case, an average person would probably need some supervision since they aren’t as burly as an NFL player. So the Scrypnosis logic goes of the American public.
