Synthetic weed also known as K-2 is no joke. It’s been banned in several states and has serious side effects including death. A New England football star just learned the hard way the harsh side effects of the man made drug.
The story according to MailOnline
Patriots star Chandler Jones has apologized after he turned up to a police station half-naked and confused after allegedly smoking synthetic marijuana.
The 25-year-old defensive end was taken to hospital after he showed up at the Foxborough, Massachusetts, precinct around around 7:40 AM on Sunday in a pair of blue sweatpants with no shirt, the police report states. The bizarre incident took place just days before the team take on the Kansas City Chiefs in the playoffs, and forced angry head coach Bill Belichek to deflect questions about what happened from reporters.
Jones apologized for his antics, saying it was a ‘stupid mistake’, and insisted his main focus was on helping the team win on Saturday night – even though he will be watching from the bench.
Jones was seen ‘scurrying’ toward the officer-only back entrance of the station when cops spotted him. Then suddenly, without warning, Jones is said to have dropped to his knees, interlocked his fingers behind his head and began to move slowly toward the ground.
‘Honestly, it appeared as if he was actively praying or worshipping,’ one officer described in the police report.
When cops started running towards him, he laid down on his stomach with his arms wide out — and told cops, ‘I’m Chandler Jones’.
The player then said he had ‘been told’ to come to the station. But when asked, he couldn’t explain to cops why exactly he was there, the report states. He was rushed to hospital for treatment after telling officers he had left his keys at home.
During a press conference, Jones apologized “pretty stupid” mistake and is focused on this week’s playoff game against Kansas City.
