Green Bay Packers DT Letroy Guion 'would miss' pot if not for football

Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Letroy Guion got busted with a lot of marijuana this offseason—360 grams, to be exact. The team stuck with him through the incident, but now Guion must hold up his end of the bargain and drop the pot.

Pete Dougherty of Press-Gazette Media asked Guion if he can do it.

"I don’t think I’ll miss it," Guion told Press-Gazette Media. "If I wasn’t playing football, I’d miss that. It’s mind over matter. I have a job to do, and I have to follow the guidelines and rules."

The NFL will eventually find out if he falls off the wagon. Guion will be subject to random drug tests as an offender of the league's substance abuse policy, and his priorities have been straightened to reflect this development.

"We’re all out here to win the championship first and provide for our families second," Guion said, per Press-Gazette Media. "So I’m not going to do anything where I mess that up again and make it so I can’t provide for my family."

After six seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, Guion arrived in Green Bay before the 2014 season and had the best year of his career. When starting nose tackle B.J. Raji was lost for the season, Guion stepped in and started all 16 games, recording 41 tackles and 3.5 sacks—both career-high marks.
