Ricky Williams, a former NFL (National Football League) player who won aHeisman Trophy in college and was selected as the first pick in the NFL draft, recently compared his cannabis use to Popeye’s use of spinach, implying that it significantly improved his performance, according to USA Today.

The comment came during an interview with Campus Insiders. He was asked if his cannabis use – which led to multiple suspensions during his career in the NFL – slowed him down at all, and if it was an Achilles heel for him.

“I don’t agree that it was an Achilles heel, I kind of think it was more like spinach for Popeye,” he replied.

Williams also made news last month, when a former Miami Dolphins teammate told the press that Williams consumed cannabis before games on multiple occasions.
