Per the World Wide Leader it seems that the Browns' Josh Gordon's lawyers are planning to argue that he was exposed to marijuana via "second hand smoke" and that this caused for his positive drug test this spring and potential year long suspension.
Gordon's "A" sample tested at 16 nanograms per milliliter, a bare one nanogram per milliliter above the 15-nanogram-per-milliliter threshold, while Gordon's "B" sample -- which should theoretically be consistent with the "A" sample, as it comes from the exact same specimen -- tested at 13.63 ng/ml, lower than the threshold.
Here in Canada, Gordon's strategy reminds us of one Ross Rebagliati, 1998 Olympic Snowboarding Gold Medalist who was apparently, similarly, exposed to the marijuana in pre-Olympics Whistler, BC. Rebagliati is now a marijuana entrepreneur.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out in light of the NFL's two game suspension for spouse abuser Ray Rice.
