Cowboys DE quits football on Instagram
Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman David Irving announced on Instagram late Thursday that he’s leaving the NFL, saying he’s prepared to “quit” football unless it loosens its stance on marijuana to match policies of other professional sports leagues.
“Pass the blunt, bro,” a smiling Irving said into the camera while holding a sizable joint. “Weed … you’re addicted to this, and that. I mean, s–t, if I’m going to be addicted to something, I’d rather it be marijuana, which is medical. It’s medicine; I do not consider it a drug, rather than the Xanax bars or the hydros or the Seroquel and all that crazy s–t that they feed you.”
