Former Oregon RB Explains What Life Is Like In Eugene

Oregon Ducks and marijuanaLast month, ESPN the Magazine published a lengthy exposé on the state of the University of Oregon football program. 

The Ducks are being investigated by the NCAA for illegal payments to a scouting service in Texas.

In addition, the ESPN article alleges the widespread use of marijuana on the football team and stated that former Duck players agreed with the statement that 40 to 60 percent of the team had smoked marijuana at some point. 

Former Oregon tailback Reuben Droughns, who later played for four NFL teams, understood what the problem was in Eugene and did not seem too shocked by the charges.

"It's the weed capital of the world. Long dreads, girls with hairy armpits. Where there's hippies, there's weed," stated Droughns.
