It’s no secret that college sports teams are full of talented young men and women who love dabbling in the marijuana. At least once a week, I read another news release about a football player finding himself on the wrong side of the law, thanks to his pot use. However, according to a new study released by the NCAA, only 24 percent of college football players admitted to smoking pot within the last year. That’s good for a piss-poor sixth place finish.

The real kings of weed in college athletics are none other than the lacrosse players, with nearly 50 percent of them admitting to marijuana use.



It’s really not even a close race. While football may consistently make the headlines, it’s still struggling in single A, while lacrosse is a perennial all-star in the big leagues.

As far as the women go, lacrosse takes the gold home, too. The oft-forgotten sport of field hockey earned the silver.

The NCAA also researched the percentage of athletes who used the drug among its different divisions. Unsurprisingly, D3 athletes dominate the statistics, with 29 percent of them admitting to marijuana use.

I assume the thought process here is, “Fuck it. I’m D3, I’m not going to be a professional athlete. Might as well hotbox every fucking thing I see.” I could not agree more.

Keep doing your thing, lax.
