Who are the top 10 pothead athletes of all time?
It may be hard for you to strain your brain thinking of 10... I know I stopped about 3 in. So, I'll just link you to a good article and give you my #1:
Ricky Williams (no brainer, I know)
Before being drafted, Ricky enlisted master contract negotiator Master P and his company, No Limit Sports (yeah, that worked for Snoop, right?) to sign him up for an incentive laden contract.
Within 3 years, Ricky had been shipped to Miami, where he eventually failed 3 consecutive drug tests for marijuana, then subsequently retired from the NFL due to it being in conflict with his religion, and became a strict vegetarian, telling ESPN:
"There are other ways to get energy," Williams told me. "The main source of energy is the sun. One of the main reasons we eat is for energy. So the energy we get from food is energy plants have metabolized through photosynthesis and then some animal eats it and it goes into the animal's tissue and then we eat their tissue. There are other ways to access energy."
So who's your favorite athlete-pothead of all time? Here's a list, courtesy of some random blog. Now I'm out to go... do something... legal...
