That generally leads to some reckless behavior, especially when you inject a few million dollars and a billion strip clubs into the equation.
Tell the truth - you ever worry about JJ Watt going out and getting in trouble at some nightclub?
I don't agree with that.
There are plenty of people that smoke weed that aren't out being reckless.
We've heard nothing about him being out and involved in reckless behavior, getting into fights or anything else involving him breaking the law other than smoking weed.
There are a lot of guys that smoke weed in the NFL that don't get popped for it and aren't hanging out at strip clubs involved in shootings.
Now I'm not saying that marijuana addiction isn't a problem for an NFL player. I just disagree that because he smokes he's a risk to be involved in all kinds of other bad behavior.
