It Wasn't Me: Raiders Aldon Smith Checks Into Rehab

Elias Trejo – Jul 29, 2016

According to TMZ Aldon Smith has checked into rehab. This was after a video surfaced on Periscope that appeared to show Smith smoking a blunt. The video ended with Smith saying, "They don't know it's me, it's not like I put Aldon Smith." This isn't that big of a blow for the Raiders because he was not going to be eligible to play until November, but it's not exactly good news for the Raiders. 

In my personal opinion Marijuana is not something that should disqualify a player from playing in the NFL. Yes, I understand what the rules and laws are, but marijuana is legal medicine in the state of California and the NFL allows more damaging and addicting medicines to be used by NFL players. Either way Smith made a bad decision, but let's be honest. That must have been some good weed because there is no other way to explain such a stupid mistake to be made.
