    You do know that steroids are illegal in our society, don't you? I assume that for doing a little pot he will not get that big of a punishment.

    Re: Soto tests positive for marijuana

    Doesn't say anything about a suspension.

    ...or did he just have to watch the principal flush the rest of his stash down the toilet and serve two weeks of detention?

    He tested positive during the WBC...does it really take that long to get the tests completed?

    Re: Soto tests positive for marijuana

    Is that considered performance enhancing?

    Maybe for an artist or a musician or porn star I guess.
