NFL stars that marijuana tried to take away (1)

Football News

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.

The fact that he subsequently failed another test for the same reasons now means he may have to sit the whole 2014 NFL season on the sidelines.

There are plenty of others players that have suffered at the hands of weed, but they still had great careers despite any penalties they may have received.

Let's take a look.
