Baseball Head Coach of Texas Wesleyan stated he is no longer recruiting players from Colorado because of the state's marijuana laws. He wrote this email to a recruit:

"Thanks for the interest in our program. Unfortunately, we are not recruiting players from the state of Colorado. In the past, players have had trouble passing our drug test. We have made a decision to not take a chance on Student-athletes from your state. You can thank your liberal politicians. Best of Luck wherever you decide to play," Jeffcoat wrote in the email provided to Chron.com.

Absurd that it's even being tested for.

Glad the coach was canned (reportedly).

Ah, yep, just reported less than an hour ago.

Jeffcoat’s response apparently was not appreciated by Texas Wesleyan officials. On Thursday, the school fired him after 16 years at the school.

He did have a losing record as a major league pitcher though, so there's that.
