LSU head coach Ed Orgeron was asked Monday whether or not the SEC should have a uniform drug policy vs. individual policies at the University level.

Here was the full question along with Orgeron's response:

Question: There's a view that there are some schools in the SEC that have a recruiting advantage over other schools because there's no uniform drug policy in the Southeastern Conference, and some folks have spoken out about that. Would you like to see a uniform drug policy in the SEC?

ED ORGERON: That's a very delicate subject. LSU has its own drug policy that's run by the administration. I follow that policy. I don't know if a uniform drug policy would help or not. I haven't thought of that question to give you a great answer. I know that I hear some schools are different than others. I don't know that. I just know what our policy is, and we follow it.

How is that a delicate subject?

Can’t wait until 2050 so I can stop reading about a banned substance that gives the athlete no advantage. It’s like when you were a teenager and your dad had a rule, and you thought it was stupid, and you asked him why, and he said “because I said so”.

I am going to go out on a limb and say LSU doesn't have a problem recruiting and weed certainly will not prevent an athlete from committing to LSU

It certainly prevents them from playing once they are here and sometimes it causes them to transfer, thus wasting the scholarship. That is worse than just losing a recruiting battle.

Kids need to stop doing freaking drugs. Get lax on weed today, in two years it’ll be acid and LSD, in two years it’ll be coke, two years it’ll be meth…. It will not stop. Take a stand on what’s right, apply the rules equally, and don’t move. Simple.

I thought acid was for wsp, phish and dead and company shows. People do them every day? Make weed legal federally, schools have a uniform drug policy, this question is never asked.

BS he doesn't know what other schools policies are..... Either he is fricking lying or he is dumb AF not knowing what he is competing against to get recruits.

With some states making it legal, the only uniform policy is not to test. Unless the states where it is legal would relinquish control to SEC at universities.

Drug tests for posters too.

The right answer is "Yes, it should be uniform so all schools are on the same page and players who are in chronic drug violations can't seek out schools who don't enforce drug testing policies"

LSU compliance is garbage when it comes to weed

Diplomatic way of saying LSU's policy hurts his recruiting effort.
