The Sports Network - NFL - Ricky Williams failed third drug test (for the use of marijuana)

Williams, who retired from the game last Sunday, told the paper that he was not addicted to smoking marijuana, but did not believe that it should be banned by the NFL. He said that he decided to quit football even before he tested positive for drugs for a second time last season when he incurred a $650,000 fine. Williams appealed that fine, but it was denied...

Williams, who suffers from social-anxiety disorder and was a former spokesperson for the anti-depressant Paxil, claimed marijuana helped him once he had to stop using Paxil because it didn't agree with his diet. Williams said that marijuana was better for him and did not see anything wrong with the drug since it was 'just a plant.'
