“He was dead weight. There was no twitching or flopping. Kiowa, who saw it happen, said it was like watching a rock fall, or a big sandbag or something—just boom, then down—not like the movies where the dead guy rolls around and does fancy spins and goes ass over teakettle—not like that, Kiowa said, the poor bastard just flat-fuck fell.

When comparing the safety of marijuana and opioid painkillers like so many professional athletes use, it is no contest. From the drug problems that plagued Ryan Leaf’s entire playing career dating back to college to Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre’s stint in rehab, opioids have caused addiction and abuse by professional athletes (Thiersch 5). The abuse often leads to overdosing on the pain killers. Marijuana would help decrease the number of opioid users and in result, decrease the number of those who die from overdose. In 2010, over 16,000 people died due to overdosing on painkillers (Freeman 38). However, there are no deaths reported annually from marijuana usage. A smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly 1,500 pounds of marijuana within about fifteen minutes to overdose (Wing 4).

Despite the efforts of lawyers and judges to eliminate racial discrimination in the courts, does racial bias play a part in today’s jury selection? Positive steps have been taken in past court cases to ensure fair and unbiased juries. Unfortunately, a popular strategy among lawyers is to incorporate racial bias without directing attention to their actions. They are taught to look for the unseen and to notice the unnoticed. The Supreme Court in its precedent setting decision on the case of Batson v. Kentucky, 476 U.S. 79 (1986), is the first step to limiting racial discrimination in the court room.
