As we all know, Ezekiel Elliott was accused of domestic violence before the preseason started. As we all know it was probably a lie. Even though we know the girl is probably lying, Elliott is still under investigation and hasn’t been cleared yet. But these allegations aren’t the reason for this question.
A video released on TMZ showed Elliott visiting a marijuana shop while in Seattle. Marijuana is legalized in the state of Washington, but is a banned substance in the NFL. Elliott was not shown making a purchase at this dispensary but Cowboys owner Jerey Jones still showed concern. “Well, I think that in and of itself the reason we are talking about is in a way part of the learning process, but it’s not good. It’s just not good. It’s just not good.” Jones was quoted saying after the Cowboys loss to the Seahawks.
The NFL seems disinclined to become publicly involved in the situation, believing Jones sufficiently rebuked Elliott. But the league continues to monitor the investigation in Ohio. Though the Cowboys have backed Elliott in light of the domestic violence investigation, Jerry Jones was obviously not happy about Elliott’s visit to this marijuana dispensary, called Herban Legends. “Again, that’s a part of just really getting the big picture here,” Jones said. “No matter if you played at whatever level, there is a picture here of interest. So again, I’m aware of it. I heard the report. I would know how he is, and he needs to look at that. And the other thing is it’s just not good.”. Marijuana and domestic violence are both widespread issues in the NFL as of recent times, and though Elliott probably isn’t guilt of domestic violence at any level, there’s video proof of him in that marijuana store, even if he wasn’t shown making a purchase.
