Is Keeping Marijuana Illegal Putting People's Health At Risk?

  Is Keeping Marijuana Illegal Putting People's Health At Risk? This article was originally published on The Fresh Toast and appears here with permission. With marijuana still listed as a Schedule 1 drug, it simply is not possible to treat marijuana the same as other plants that are consumed by American citizens. Some argue that marijuana is far less toxic than any drugs made in a lab, since it is a plant that comes from Mother Earth. While the sentiment and logic is in the right place, the sad truth is that our Earth, its soil and the way we grow plants in this modern times is a far cry from what one might consider “organic.

A veteran NFL wide receiver has been cut before his team's game on Monday night.

The Green Bay Packers announced on Monday afternoon that veteran wide receiver Sammy Watkins has been released.

Watkins was viewed by some as a potential impact player for the Packers this season, especially following the trade of Davante Adams to Las Vegas. But Watkins was never really able to latch on in Green Bay.

NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero first reported the news.

"Any team claiming Sammy Watkins would take the rest of his one-year contract, including just $186,667 in base salary plus $19,411.67 for each game he's active the rest of the regular season," he reported on Monday.

The Packers are set to take on the Rams on Monday Night Football this evening.

Kickoff is set for 8:15 p.m. E.T.

The game will air on ESPN.
