LSU Synthetic Marijuana
November 9, 2011 by staff
LSU Synthetic Marijuana, The Louisiana State University Tigers are the number one ranked Bowl Championship Series (BCS) college football team in the nation. However, LSU will be a bit shorthanded for at least one game as the university is reportedly suspending three players (including Heisman Trophy candidate cornerback Tyrann “Honey Badger” Mathieu) for testing positive for “synthetic marijuana” after a random drug screening.
In addition to Mathieu, Tigers starting running back Spencer Ware and cornerback Tharold Simon will be suspended. Mathieu and Ware will reportedly sit out one game – Saturday night’s key matchup against SEC archrival Auburn – while Simon will face a multiple-game suspension.
Look for LSU haters to cynically (and perhaps correctly) suggest Simon’s suspension is more severe because he’s not a starter. However, it was reported that Ware and Mathieu could face longer suspensions as well.
At his weekly press conference on Wednesday night in Baton Rouge, LSU coach Les Miles refused to confirm or deny the impending suspensions, though he did describe the allegations of positive drug tests as being “way left of center” and said the matter will be handled internally.
Despite Coach Miles’ wish for this to all go away, attention couldn’t be more focused on a terrific Tigers team seeking their first BCS title game win since 2008 (when the team defeated then-top-rated Ohio State), and their third BCS crown overall since 2004.
An unprecedented third BCS title this season would solidify LSU as the number one college football program of the new millennium, so a lot is at stake with the possible extended suspensions of turnover-generating corner Mathieu on defense and bruising power runner Ware on offense.
If it was indeed synthetic pot the three players tested positive for, it’s an ironic indicator of how synthetic cannabis substances such as K2 and Spice have become outlawed in more and more states since 2010, after flying under the radar for years and being used by those seeking to simulate the cannabis “high” without testing positive for THC metabolites. Perhaps Mathieu, Ware and Simon should have put their LSU scholarships to good use and done some research, as synthetic marijuana products have been illegal in Louisiana since August 15, 2010.
