In the wake of former NFL star Sam Hurd's arrest and 15-year prison sentence for planning a drug-distribution scheme, reports from Sports Illustrated also say that Hurd frequently smoked high-grade marijuana shipped from California and distributed it to teammates over five seasons with the Dallas Cowboys.
Hurd admitted to smoking on Cali's finest “all day, every day, and I didn’t want to hear anyone trying to tell me I had a problem.”
The former wide receiver reportedly split the cost of shipping the marijuana with over 20 to 25 teammates during his tenure as a Cowboy.
“Whatever was considered the loudest weed in California—I wanted a notch above that,” Hurd told Sports Illustrated from a prison interview room in Seagoville. “I had educated myself on different strains and potencies and growing techniques. I was very selective. It was like wine.”
