Jason Stewart may have just made football history, as the former Fan Controlled Football quarterback may very well be the first player to ever get cut over a touchdown celebration.
Stewart made headlines last week when he celebrated a touchdown by sparking up a joint along the sidelines, taking a few puffs, and handing it off to some fans before yelling to the camera, “Blaze up my friends, blaze up.”
Some may have figured that Fan Controlled Football would look past this incident, as they’ve promoted their acceptance of marijuana in the past.
However, the league still does not condone the use of marijuana in states where it is not legal. And the game just so happened to be in Atlanta, where Georgia’s laws still consider the drug to be illegal.

As such, the Zappers had no choice but to cut their quarterback. Fan Controlled Football released the following statement on the matter:
“Jason Stewart was cut from the Zappers for violating league policy. While the FCF fully supports player’s responsible use of cannabis, unfortunately it is still illegal in the state of Georgia and is banned by our venue and hotel property partners – so our policy of not allowing smoking at these sites is well known by all of our players.”
If you’re wondering how Jason feels about the matter, it appears as though he’s doing just fine.
As for the Zappers, it’ll be interesting to see if they turn to Johnny Manziel under center once again. Manziel has played two games for the Zappers so far this season, but it appears as though he’s in no rush to leave the beautiful views in Vegas behind and step back onto the gridiron.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS?
