    "Shocking" news...Ricky Williams test positive for weed...

    ESPN link

    Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams tested positive for marijuana in April and will not be allowed to apply for reinstatement to the NFL until September, sources said.

    Williams was suspended last year for violation of the substance abuse policy and was eligible to be reinstated this month, but the league's medical advisors that oversee Williams' personal rehabilitation program recently notified commissioner Roger Goodell of the positive test, sources said.

    The doctors also recommended that Williams not be allowed to apply for reinstatement until September, sources said. The commissioner usually adheres to the advice of the medical advisors under the substance abuse policy.

    "Falling off the wagon is part of rehab," a source said. "Based on the medical evidence in Ricky's case, the doctors say it's too early to come back. He had the positive test last month.

    Remember, he's been diagnosed with social anxiety disorder -- that's a real disease and a good percentage of those folks self-medicate with substances like marijuana, often at the moment they are about to have a high level of social interaction."

    League spokesman Greg Aiello said the NFL would have no comment, as did Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene.

    David Cornwell, an attorney who has represented Williams during his substance abuse cases, said he would honor the confidentiality policies in effect with another no comment.

    Mr. Williams, this is your Miami Dolphins locker... "you can keep you weed in it!"

    You're a real piece of work Mr. Williams. Way to flush your potential down the toilet. You sir, are a loser.

    What's everybody so uptight about, man? Even the founding fathers all used to smoke. Didja ever look at a dollar bill, man? There's some spooky s**t goin' on there. And it's green too.

    Ricky just needs a lady. Behind every good man there is a woman, and that woman was Martha Washington, man, and everyday George would come home, she would have a big fat bowl waiting for him, man, when he come in the door, man, she was a hip, hip, hip lady, man.
