Why does this hit home?

Because most parents of athletic children think that their kids care too much about their bodies to do drugs. It’s obvious that’s not the case.

Ricky Williams was once considered one of the best running backs that the NCAA had every seen. He left the NFL and went to play in Canada so he could continue smoking pot.

ESPN dives into the college drug culture, and shows how even the nation’s best collegiate athletes are not immune to messing around with marijuana or popping prescription drugs.
