Text Messages Obtained By The Court Show That Ezekiel Elliott May Have (Gasp) Smoked Weed This Offseason
LBS- The Fort Worth Star-Telegram obtained court documents including text messages between Elliott and his ex-girlfriend Tiffany Thompson in which the pair appear to have some worry over Elliott passing an upcoming drug test.
“I know you’re stressed out, if you need me call me,” Thompson messaged Elliott in one exchange, via Drew Davison of the Star-Telegram.
“Just do everything you can to pass your drug test tomorrow. You’ll be okay. I’m here for you.”
“I’m gonna pass,” Elliott responded. “About to live in this sauna the next 24 hours.”
Frank C. Salzano, Elliott’s attorney, called the messages “a non story.”
Say it ain't so! The professional running back that was photographed in a marijuana dispensary may be a bit of a smoker!? I thought he was just perusing. Ya know, taking in the local culture. Getting a feel for the city of Seattle by educating himself on the paraphernalia of their newly legal recreational drugs. Now you're telling me he had the GALL to actually partake in them? I gotta say, I'm pretty disappointed. Here I was thinking he was just a curious young kid browsing through boutiques and just happened to wander into a weed store. Turns he's just a big old stoner trying to sweat his way around the entire system.
And to think, it's a system that's not at all antiquated and been put in place to benefit the players. Players that put their bodies and general well being on the line daily and can't possibly benefit from a little substance induced relaxation. Doesn't Ezekiel Elliott know that marijuana is a gateway drug? A couple more blunts followed by extensive sauna sessions and he'll be on the verge of a full blown meth addiction. Good thing he's got the NFL looking out for him by making him piss into a cup in hopes of suspending him without pay for a quarter of the season.
P.S. Gotta love the attorney. Client is shedding 10 pounds in one day by sitting in a hot box desperately trying to rid himself of THC? Meh, non-story.
