Yes, the drug that Gordon couldn’t let go for the sake of collection millions in the NFL was marijuana. However, Gordon has said that is not the case while the drug that got him bounced from the league may actually be alcohol.
But regardless, and right on cue, Twitter took this as an opportune time to let off these weed jokes.
You know they’re funny. For everyone except Josh Gordon.
Also, the irony of abusers playing in the NFL while Gordon sits on the sidelines also hasn’t been lost.

Free Josh Gordon.
Nobody should ever been banned from a violent, physical sport like football for smoking weed.

Once again Josh Gordon has been denied reinstatement by the NFL. If only he beat women instead of smoking a plant he'd be playing this year.
