Giants safety Will Hill claims second-hand smoke to blame for positive test

Giants safety Will Hill faces a six-game suspension after testing positive for marijuana, but if you believe Will Hill, the failed drug test wasn’t his fault. Hill is telling friends that his latest positive test was the result of second-hand pot smoke.

Hill was suspended after losing an appeal that, according Hill’s former teammate Deon Grant, the Giants safety believed he had a great chance of winning due to his second-hand smoke claim.

“He felt like he had a great chance of beating it because of the circumstances,” Grant said via NJ.com. “He said, ‘I’ll be honest with you.  If it was something that I did, I would tell you I messed up.  But I didn’t.  It was an incident in a club where people were [smoking marijuana] and it got in my system.  It’s not like how my urine was a certain kind of way before when I did do it.  It’s the total opposite right now.  They found something in my urine, but it’s not the same thing they found when I did make that mistake.’”

Well that sounds like an ironclad scientific defense to me. He mentioned urine several times which shows that he knows all about chemistry. Clearly, the NFL goofed up by not being able to tell that whatever was in his urine was the result of second-hand pot smoke and not first-hand pot smoke.

Why doesn’t Will Hill get the benefit of the doubt? Just because he got nailed with pot before, that doesn’t mean he was doing it on purpose this time. Accidents happen. The NFL is clearly out to get Will Hill.

Or something. Pass the bong, would you man?
