According to former Miami Dolphins Linebacker, Channing Crowder, his former teammate, Ricky Williams used to smoke Marijuana the night before games. Channing told Miami Radio station WQAM on Thursday:
Remember that Buffalo game, the 200-yard game? Smoked the night before. Talk to Ricky. He was doing it, that’s what he did. Ricky has social anxiety and he smoked weed. Ricky’s marijuana didn’t affect the team until he got caught smoking. . . . Him smoking weed, sitting at his house smoking weed, didn’t affect anybody but Ricky. He got high and then he sobered up and then he went to practice the next day.
Williams tested positive for Marijuana 3 times before his brief retirement from the NFL in 2004 and the ESPN 30 for 30 special, “Run, Ricky, Run” featured the star RB as an avid Marijuana user.
