Last weekend, Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones was taken to a hospital in Massachusetts after he reportedly smoked synthetic marijuana and then showed up at a police station near his home shirtless and confused after the bad trip. Jones refused to speak to reporters and coach Bill Belichick answered questions about the story in typical Belichick fashion by saying absolutely nothing.
Hall-of-Fame wide receiver and apparent narcotics expert, Cris Carter, isn’t buying the story. During an appearance on ESPN’s Mike & Mike in the Morning today, Carter suggests that Chandler Jones went full “Hoyt from Training Day” and smoked that wet. Butt naked, Ill, Sherm, Dust, PCP, Primo, P-Dog.
“I think that the synthetic marijuana story might be just a story,” Carter said on the show. “Just for me, it don’t pass the smell test for me. To me, I think that—I think he was smoking marijuana, and I think he was smoking some marijuana laced with PCP, or angel dust. And I think that’s what made him trip out. Now, he could have been smoking synthetic, but it’s a better story—it’s a better story to tell. ‘That’s the reason I’m here.’ So when he got to the police station, why was he smelling like marijuana? Because synthetic doesn’t smell like marijuana. So for me, I don’t know all the details of the case, but I’m just a little—uh, the synthetic, that’s a better way to put it.”
Carter went on the make a connection between former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, seeing as how Hernandez was allegedly a heavy PCP user prior to his arrest on murder charges.
“If you look at—this is not the same thing, so don’t freak out on me, people—but Aaron Hernandez, if you look at what was some of the things they started looking at with him,” he said. “At the end, he was smoking marijuana laced with PCP. And that’s when the people around him said you can start to see, it started making a difference in his decision making. So did he have that? No. I’m just trying to tell you what I believe could be the end result, because that’s what happens.”
