Cleveland Browns wide receiver Davone Bess posted a picture of himself holding a blunt, or “joint.” That’s a “marijuana cigarette” for our readers with little to no recreational drug knowledge. He’s also holding that blunt next to an homage to Bob Marley, who was known for, among other things, smoking a blunt or two in his day.
Davone Bess had the day off from the Brownies, and it looks like he’s going to get a lot more time off from the Browns, but not the kind of time off an NFL player would be looking for.
Fun times in Cleveland again, still Cleveland! C’mon down to Cleveland town everyone.
Davone Bess missed practice Thursday and Friday due to personal reasons. There are reports he is dealing with family issues. Now I’m the first one to beat the marijuana is not that harmful and it should be legalized drum. The fact that a couple states have already legalized the good weed is further validation of that. However, the wacky tobbacky is currently illegal in Ohio and you’re not exactly the brightest bulb in the world if you do a selfie (well, it’s not a true selfie as someone else other than Davone Bess obviously took the pic) that would serve as exhibit A for misdemeanor narcotic possession.
Davone Bess likely figured that out as he deleted not just the picture, but his Instagram account.
