Smoking marijuana in sports seems like something unacceptable by definition. Despite that, some famous athletes are not scared of consequences. They choose to smoke pot, despite all of the potential consequences. In this post, I have compiled the list of the top 5 athletes who like smoking marijuana.
Jamaican-born Usain Bolt never denied the fact that he enjoys pot. It’s just how it works in Jamaica. With its reggae rhythms, Rastas, and ganja, the country left a permanent mark on the face of the famous sprinter, a multiple time Olympic gold medalist.
Randy Moss had serious problems throughout his career. Back in college, Moss lost scholarships at Notre Dame and Florida State due to marijuana use. Randy has always been open about smoking weed. He publically stated that he has been smoking marijuana since entering the NFL.
The famous NBA icon, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, is a known smoker in the world of sports. Back in the days, Kareem was arrested for driving under the influence of marijuana. Nevertheless, all the weed-related troubles didn’t prevent Abdul-Jabbar from being the all-time leading scorer in the old days of the NBA.
Marijuana gave the famous pitcher some serious problems. There was a day when Lincecum was pulled over by a cop for speeding. Not only Tim was driving quickly that day, he was also smoking weed while he was driving. The Freak is truly fearless.
Michael Phelps is a legend. There are no doubts about that. The “Flying Fish” is a true icon in the modern world of sports. Yet, he is not such a good boy when it comes to smoking pot. Back in 2009, Phelps was suspended for 3 months because of a leaked photograph of him smoking weed. Michael never tried to hide the fact that he is, indeed, a marijuana fan. He is just the way he is. Like all of us, the man has his sins and virtues.
