I'm in the minority, but I don't think cocaine use is that bad

    Yes, it's addicting.

    Yes, it's one step away from crack.

    Yes, as a professional athlete he "shouldn't" be doing it.

    But ya know what - if I've learned anything from living in Hollywood and being around film sets and filmmakers, that every once in a while, there isn't anything wrong at all with a little coke. Alcohol, caffeine and prescription barbiturates are all acceptable for some reason. I'd lump cocaine in with any of those. With responsible use, any drug can be managed. Yes, any of them.

    It's not a performance enhancer and perhaps JJ is legitimately addicted to it. Glad he's checked into a facility to get some help.

    Jones will get lambasted for this and perhaps, rightfully so.


    But I don't judge.

    JJ is definitely not addicted - he wouldn't be a champ if he were, plus he passed the follow-up test. He just uses it occasionally, I assume. Nothing wrong with that, other than the fact that it's illegal. Oh, and the "role model" thing.

    If he's not consuming it around fight time it's not a big deal. Can't say I'm surprised at all.

    That's it apologists, try to minimize it and sweep it under the rug.

    It's just shady as fuck that Weed will get you banned while cocaine will not.

    Nobody should be up in arms over a young professional athlete doing cocaine. It amuses me that Jones got caught for it, though.

    i think there'll be more people than some realise that have taken coke on a few occasions, and we all think no big deal (i've done it) but i don't think it's right to say it's not that bad. think of the crime, the misery and the suffering that little bag has brought to the people's lives in the countries this is produced in, cut in, distributed in and so on... particularly for such a public figure, saying "shit that stuff doesn't matter as long as i have a better party tonight" is never going to go down well

    Weak minded people take drugs and are easy to control. Hence the control substance moniker. If you are one of those victims you need help immediately.

    It is a social drug. I know he isn't addicted, but of course they have to say that.

    Yep.

    I'm sure Jones haters will be all over this - and perhaps a little shaming is in order so he doesn't spiral out of control ala LT.

    I just dislike that certain drugs in our society are deemed "moral" while other are "immoral". Fuck all that noise. We're all addicts.

    I don't either but sorry if I don't feel sorry for someone that admits he liked snitching on people that smoked weed at his HS.

    I agree.

    People who smoke weed or drink alcohol everyday and shit on people who do Cocaine once in a while are fucking idiots.
    Although if you're doing Cocaine everyday then I guess you're a fucking idiot too...

    You would be a regular non sheltered adult if a famous person doing coke and partying didn't bother you.

    Explain that to the millions of politicians, artists, entertainers and scientists who have used drugs throughout history.

    All your idols did drugs.

    Get over yourself, dude.
