Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick had a water bottle confiscated by security officials at Miami International Airport yesterday. A police report says the bottle had a hidden compartment and that it contained a small amount of residue that is "closely associated with marijuana."The police report says Vick was at first hesitant to turn the bottle over to security screeners and that the compartment was hidden by the bottle's label. The effect was that the bottle appeared to be full of water when held upright.
The bottle and its contents were sent to a crime lab and police say the results of the investigation may not be known for weeks.
No charges have been filed.

That sentence doesn't even make sense. A residue closely associated with marijuana??? What does that mean?
Many professional athletes use marijuana. Let's see Ricky Williams comes to mind. Thurman Thomas, Randy Moss, Nate Newton, Mark Stepnoski....the list goes on and on. I say if these guys are able to smoke pot and still perform in a 60 minute brutal slam-fest that is the NFL....then what's the problem? It obviously isn't having a negative effect on their athletic abilities.
