In Connecticut, possession of illegal drugs is a one-year jail term for first offense violators. Most states will lock you up for possession of a single marijuana joint. A gram of cocaine can result in a seven-year prison sentence in New Hampshire. You can get 30 days in jail just for selling a cigarette to a minor.
The use of illegal drugs can and often does result in jail time. Well, it does for us “normal” people. But one has to wonder why these laws do not apply to the most visible of our citizens, those very people who act as role models for our youth.
In 2003, Texas Rangers’ Alex Rodriguez tested positive for steroids usage. Rodriguez won the American League MVP that year and was not even charged for jaywalking. His salary today is $33 million.
Jose Canseco’s career brought him both fame and riches (a five-year contract in the ’90s netted him over $23 million). No one seemed to find it odd that a man would have biceps like tree trunks, and an almost Popeye-esque disfigurement of sports talent.
After retiring, Canseco goes on an interviewing circuit to brag about how he took steroids with his Wheaties each morning and even helped inject his teammates. Now that’s teamwork at its best.
