Ricky Williams, former running back for the NFL, was always known as a marijuana user.

He often smoked before games, and it is said that he did so before the Buffalo Bills games where he rushed over 200 yards back in 2002.

In 2006, Williams was suspended for the whole season for violating the substance policy the NFL has against drug use,

Williams is currently an assistant coach at Incarnate University and in a recent interview, he spoke to The Win about his pot smoking past saying, “I’m an open book with these kids in any area of my life that they want to talk about. I don’t agree that (smoking weed) was an Achilles’ heel. I kind of think it was more like spinach for Popeye.”

A lot of folks might misconstrue his statement but to tell you the truth, I'm sure there are plenty of players in the league who feel the same way as he lol.
