Report: Synthetic marijuana caused Chandler Jones’ hospitalization

New England Patriots v St Louis Rams Getty Images

A little more light has come to the curious case of Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones.

According to Christopher Gasper of the Boston Globe, Jones’s “confused” reaction which required hospitalization was triggered by synthetic marijuana.

Jones wandered into a police station and was hospitalized overnight after an apparent overdose, though he returned to the practice field Monday, as the Patriots prepared for the divisional round playoffs against the Chiefs.

The synthetic marijuana could land Jones in the league’s substance abuse program, though that wouldn’t trigger a suspension for a first offense.

But at least he’s safe, and didn’t find himself on the wrong side of a hotel room window.

    Yep, because that stuff is really, really good for you………..at least if you are going to do it, make sure it grows in a pot or out of the ground.

    Does this not warrant a suspension?

    Nasty stuff, just let them use the legal meds.

  6. jackodn says: Jan 13, 2016 4:55 PM

    Geez, as much as I think banning pot is ridiculous and it actually could help these guys manage pain without narcotics, you’d hope Jones would realize what’s at stake.

    That Spice crap is crazy, too. You see police blotters full of examples of idiots whacked out that stuff.

    Synthetic marijuana which is know to cause extremely harmful reactions is legal. Regular marijuana which has never caused an overdose, ever, is not.

    Makes sense.

  11. boido says: Jan 13, 2016 4:57 PM

    If they’d just let them smoke a little pot now and then this could all be avoided.

    Although there was that one off-duty cop that ate a few pot brownies and called 911 to report an overdose. “I think we’re dead, time’s moving really slowly”.

    If you haven’ heard that audio, you’re missing out.

  12. Marshawn Lunch says: Jan 13, 2016 4:57 PM

    Going to the police station for his “medical emergency” makes more sense now. That synthetic marijuana stuff is bad news. Reports of terrible paranoia are basically all you hear about it.

    Normal pot should be legal at the federal level and taken out of the NFL’s substance abuse program and they should instead use it for medicinal benefits. As a pain reliever alone it’s worth it. I would like to see study’s dealing with its effects on concussion symptoms as well.

    Kellen Winslow was arrested for using Synthetic Marijuana in January 2014 (google it) and at that time we were told:

    “Synthetic marijuana is not on the NFL’s list of banned substances.”

    “Our drug policy is one that has strict and well-defined drugs that are banned,” union boss DeMaurice Smith said, via NJ.com. “If they are not on the list, they can’t serve as the basis for discipline.”

    So unless Synthetic Marijuana has been added to the banned substances list in the last two years, no league disciplne is possible

    Well, with him, Hightower, and Collins up for new contracts next year, I think this is Jones’ ticket out of town. It was going to be tough to resign all three. I always thought sacks were over rated, and someone will offer him crazy money. Pats will not match.

  30. mkreef says: Jan 13, 2016 5:11 PM

    Here in MA dealers are lacing pot with fentanyl among other things. Even though possession under 1oz is legal, you still can’t buy it in stores (this ain’t Colorado), so no guarantee what you get from your corner drug dealer is good stuff.

  31. hippieway says: Jan 13, 2016 5:11 PM

    Yeah you can’t lay into that stuff like marijuana, that crap will put you away. It should be illegal.

  32. truthprofessor says: Jan 13, 2016 5:11 PM

    This does not even count as a first time offense, since fake weed is NOT on the NFL banned substances list.

    He cannot be punished at all under the NFL drug policy.

    He was not arrested, so it’s a stretch to think he’d be punished under the personal conduct policy, either.

    It’s simply bad PR and nothing more.

    I hope that he gets some help though.

    Maybe Kraft gave Belichick the black eye now BEFORE the game on Saturday. You know, just a reminder of what the consequences are for letting the players have too much freedom before another ‘One & Done’.

    Synthetic marijuana and marijuana shouldn’t even be in the same category. Synthetic marijuana/spice/bathsalts/K3 causes migraines, fits of rage, depression, and even death. All marijuana does is make you hungry and giggly if you use it in moderation. The drug laws in this country are exactly why crap like spice is even around.

    The perfect example on why MJ should be legalized or should be accepted as recreational use in the NFL. What happens is they don’t want to smoke MJ as just a few puffs can stay in system for a long time. A flush detox would work but if using synthetic MJ easier to flush oiyof system. That and Synthetic MJ is deadly and in hence, overdose. Regular MJ, only a overdose of food.

  43. chromesoxbeamin says: Jan 13, 2016 5:25 PM

    This stuff is deadly and should not be messed with, many chemical reactions that are very unpredictable. At the end of the day it’s just for PR reasons that the league penalizes reefer smoking. Everyone should know the effects of any kind of drug they take and it would’ve been unfortunate if something more serious had happened to this guy but do it at your own risk is the philosophy apparently because death is the potential consequence.

    Like someone above said, it was “synthetic”… and whether most like it or not, the real thing is still illegal in most states.

    But, you do realize that, even if it were legal, an employer can still prohibit its use, if you want to remain employed that is….

    Jones is a good player even if he is apparently an idiot, but Collins and Hightower were always the more important guys to try to get extended. Sacks are great, but we have all seen Jones disappear in some games. Collins and Hightower never disappear when healthy and they can rush the passer, stop the run, and are pretty good in coverage.

    Truthprofessor says, “no league disciplne is possible [because it’s not on the banned substance list]”

    You may have a great point there. But we all know Bill Belichick is a serious football coach. And if you take focus away from the game, you may get benched as a result. Maybe even get cut from the team. If you get in trouble with the law on his team, and it becomes public, then he might not be so keen to let you on the field anymore. But, since this is a first offense (that I know of) for Chandler Jones, I think he’ll play on Saturday.

    Yeah… That law and the rule that the DEA wrote based upon it moved 26 specific substances to Schedule I. The problem with that is that those 26 substances are listed by their IUPAC chemical name, so if a similar-acting chemical can be created, it can be used legally (at least until the DEA gets around to writing a new rule placing the new chemical on Schedule I). That’s why Spice is still out there.

    It’a nasty brew of chemicals and organics meant to simulate and smoke like real marijauna. It’s also know as bath salts among things to avoid alerting DEA agents as to what it really is. It’s marketed to young people who can’t find real weed. One of the reasons governments have had such a hard time enacting laws against it is because these unethical chemists stay 2 steps ahead of authorities by continually altering the formula, so that by the time laws are enacted, the chemical formula has changed so much that legislators have to start all over again.

    Absolutely not. There are no canbannoids in synthetic weed. Its basically some plant sprayed with a lot of disgusting chemicals that is probably more akin to meth or angel dust than weed.

    Absolutely not to your absolutely not. Cannabanoids are are diverse family of chemicals that act on the cannabinoid receptors. THC is only one of many. There’s a whole lot of them. The ones used in synthetic marijuana production are typically of the AM, HU, JWH, or CP families. They’re definitely synthetic, but they’re also definitely cannabinoids.

    Everyone knows when the test is coming each year for marijuana, unless you’re already in the program in which case you’re subject to more frequent testing. The fact that he was using spice may suggest he’s already in the substance abuse program out of fear of failing a random test.

    So are we to believe NFL players don’t smoke a little Cannabis now? I’m telling you about 70-80% of all NFL players smoke weed atleast occasionally and through the season. This synthetic Cannabis is terrible but players are still looking for their highs whether it’s pills Cannabis or women the are always doing something.

    He should NOT be suspended but should permanently be put into the substance abuse program so that he can get tested every week otherwise it’s a total sham and their isn’t any penalties.

    Why was he smoking weed anyway right before a playoff game??

  92. 315judman says: Jan 13, 2016 7:54 PM

    A patriot player might have used a substance not even on the banned substance list. All kinds of negative comments.

    Other players from other teams have been suspended for this crap in other years. Despite the feelings of the fans in bean town, Chandler should watch a game seated next to marky mark.

    This is dangerous stuff. Just legalize the real thing. It’s not like weed is a “performance enhancing drug”

  94. plum54 says: Jan 13, 2016 7:54 PM

    The Foxboro police did not “try to cover it up”. Federal privacy laws were violated due to a medical condition, there was no coverup, just the federal being followed.

    Yeah ok a millionaire is going to do synthetic pot? Cover up from the start.
    ______________________

    Of course millionaires that have to pee in a cup are going to smoke synthetic pot, the contents aren’t on the NFL banned list MJ and hash oil are. Try to keep up. Do you pay attention to anything outside your agenda?
    In less than 24 hours we have gone from a wild party at Gronk’s where Jones OD’d on pills as a result of which Gronk punched out Belichick and was exiled from the facility to:

    Jones had a bad reaction to legal synthetic weed.
    Gronk was in Florida visiting his mother when it happened.
    Belichick walked through the locker room with boxing gloves and the team cracked up.
    Gronk was given the day off to rest his knee and actually used some of the time to visit a pediatric cancer ward.

    How sad for hateroid nation that Jones won’t/can’t be suspended and nothing illegal was covered up, Gronk wasn’t raving unless it was about his Mom’s cooking, Belichick actually has a sense of humor and instead of punching his coach and eating small children Gronk was visiting sick ones.

    I’m sure his mates are just tickled that with all the injuries and people missing that his actions could have cost the team a playoff win. Very bright. He is on his way out he just doesn’t know it yet.

    Stick with the real MJ. Synthetic stuff is bad bad news. To many cases of people having psychotic reactions.

    redskinsroost,

    Don’t confuse Chandler’s issue with Danny Synder violating the salary cap by trying to pay off Hanesworth contract in the uncapped year. That is what cheating is!

    ===
    Really? Who has been suspended for synthetic cannabinoids and under what circumstances? I could buy a player being suspended for doing something criminal or harmful to a third party while under the influence of SYNTH MJ, but that is more a CoC suspension, not a SoA suspension. The NFL Substance of Abuse policy deals with and tests for seven or eight specific drugs. This one isn’t on the list. Do we have to go through this again? If it hasn’t been collectively bargained, Roger can’t just change the rules because it’s Tuesday.

  102. smasonsmith says: Jan 13, 2016 9:44 PM

    Absolutely not. There are no canbannoids in synthetic weed. Its basically some plant sprayed with a lot of disgusting chemicals that is probably more akin to meth or angel dust than weed.
    ===
    BTW: The main problem with SYNTH MJ isn’t that it’s cannabanoids or not – though adulterating with an amphetamine could definitely be a problem with a given batch – but rather it is that the cannabinoids that ARE used can be hundreds (or more) times more potent than THC. Take your worst, most paranoid trip ever, multiply that by 800, and that’s an equimolar dose of spice. No, thank you…

    I think chipwood is on synthetic marijuana
    He’s got the symptoms

    Extreme paranoia

  104. blspears says: Jan 13, 2016 11:03 PM

    That’s legal who cares. Im sure the NFL & Bill Belicheck cared a whole lot when LT was partying hard back in the 80’s doing God knows what.

    It has nothing to do with football. Why should we as fans care.

  105. 8oneanddones says: Jan 13, 2016 11:31 PM

    A big reason people use that synthetic garbage is to get around drug testing. The real stuff can get you in a lot of trouble if you fail a test.

    As long as cannabis is a federal schedule I drug, the NFL will continue to ban it.

  106. jhonnyklassik says: Jan 14, 2016 3:15 AM

    Jones got championship bloodlines tho, authur super bowl champe, chandler super bowl champ, jon jones ufc champ, undefeated with lost coming via illegal elbow in a fight he was already dominating and in process of finishing before illegal elbow.

    Maybe Kraft gave Belichick the black eye now BEFORE the game on Saturday. You know, just a reminder of what the consequences are for letting the players have too much freedom before another ‘One & Done’.
    ———————————–

    Two, that’s right TWO one and dones in the Brady error in ’09 & ’10. 21-8 playoff record good for a .724 winning percentage, that’s less than .05 off their regular season winning % with Brady at the helm against playoff caliber opposition. There’s an entire generation of Pats fans out there who have known almost nothing but success. Only 2 losing seasons in the 21 years Kraft has owned the team but there’s spoiled and then there’s ridiculously spoiled. In light of how banged up they are maybe temper the expectations a little for a team that lost more man games to injury than any other and was 4th in players placed on IR. Freedom has nothing to do with it, if they are healthy enough they can play with anyone.

    While it’s hard for NE fans under 35 to understand, posts like this are particularly galling to us long timers who survived the Sullivan and Kiam regimes. The Pats were 14-50 in the 4 years before Kraft, that’s only TWO wins more than they had this year alone IN FOUR YEARS.
    Chill out and enjoy the ride eventually all good things must end.

    All the biblical stuff is about taking and eating from the tree of knowledge. You God put the rest here to avoid or enjoy. Per ones preference. The synthetic crap you can blame (fill in your druthers)
    . Sounds like ambien or that other sleep stuff. Folks in Greenview probably know. Go Pats.

    this stuff is NOT “synthetic cannabinoids”…its plant leaves which are put an conveyor belt and sprayed with a mix of synthetic drugs, NON of which is related to marijuana…much closer to bath salts, hence the psychotic reactions of some users

    its manufactured by huge Chinese drug firms that are constantly inventing new “bath salt” like synthetic drugs that stay one step ahead of the law

    but it has no commonalities with marijuana
