Former LSU defensive back Tyrann Mathieu saw his career end due to marijuana and synthetic marijuana. According to one story making the rounds before the NFL draft, Mathieu allegedly told one pro team that he’d failed double-digit drug tests while a Tiger, but he later denied making that statement.
Well, tell that to Bud’s Glass joint, a head shop that sells drug paraphernalia in Phoenix. The store placed an ad in The Phoenix New Times welcoming the Arizona Cardinals’ newest player to the area.
“Honey Badger. Welcome to Phoenix! We have what you’re looking for.”
Such an ad is hardly fair to Mathieu, of course, and one wonders if his agent won’t try to take legal action of some sort against the shop for using his likeness in its ad. But with so much smoke surrounding his college career — pun intended — it will be interesting to see if there are any more fires moving forward into the pro ranks.
The Cardinals have reportedly put provisions in Mathieu’s contract forcing him to submit to drug testing more often than his teammates.
