Im not going to do something like that.....companies should see this but when the managers are part of the problem who do you tell? Its only a matter of time until the law of averages catches up with them.....I know it has in the past and history always repeats itself so I will leave it up to them. Maybe if some of the other team drivers see this that they can tell them to curb it at the track. Like I said I dont care what you do on your own time at your own place but when you are in public and interacting with them thats another story.

I'm not condemning anybody, so please don't take it as such. It's just that it's a topic which plenty of people find offensive, and since it's illegal, those people could cause drama if they felt so inclined. I have personally witnessed hotels cancel events (including hotel reservations) because of an extremely similar problem. Not to mention, these companies probably don't want to be openly associated with this stuff, which could affect their drivers.
Those post werent bragging.. those were people trying to be funny, and stir up the pot. Mainly from people who are clueless, and 1 person who is apparently extremely bitter towards his former sponsor and has since turned into a little punk... especially since he goes back and edits all his posts. People are big talkers behind the keyboard, with fake names, and some even their real names..... and thats why we love the internet.

So are you saying you support these illegal activities in forums where children could be present...such as these boards and tracks as well? You sure seem to have plenty of excuses for them.

Im not saying that at all, and I appreciate you putting words in my mouth. All I am saying is it is one thing to discuss something you are unhappy with, as opposed to taking cheap shots at people.

I've just been reading and laughing. I just love how a thread about new stuff coming out has taken YET ANOTHER turn.

Oh and the people who keep discussing it are the people who keep bringing it up (either serious or joking) as something they do or have intimate knowledge of.

Talking

Lots of talk, no action, etc.

Why be "discreet"?

If you know someone who is a team manager/driver that smokes weed, while on the company dime, don't be a sissy, put up or shut up!

Company ______________

WTF? I could care less if the dude sits at home eating Cheeto's and watching porn while smoking a fatty. But if the dude is on the "clock" and doing it, thats some serious BS and he oughta be called out.

btw, not that I'm proud of it but I've got more weed left in my old album covers than most of these guys have smoked in their lives....

So I've been there.

And the Mi3 will be out first.
