Some of the great NFL players past and present have had their run ins with marijuana, and Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon is just the latest to be embroiled in a football weed scandal.
Even though marijuana has been legalized in two states in America, Colorado and Washington, it still remains an illegal drug in the vast majority of the USA.
This isn't the first time that Gordon has faced a suspension from the NFL for abusing weed. He was suspended for the first two games of the 2013 season for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy.
