5 footballers who were punished for smoking marijuana
#4 Chris Armstrong
Then-Crystal Palace striker Chris Armstrong became the first ever Premier League player to fail a drugs test when he tested positive for cannabis in March 1995.
He was given a four-match ban by his club and was checked into a rehabilitation program before returning to action a month later. Any suggestion that his career prospects would be harmed by his indiscretion was dispelled when he joined Tottenham Hotspur for £4.5 million that summer.Published 11 Jul 2017, 14:12 IST
