Former Dolphins RB Ricky Williams hugs actual dolphin

Former NFL running back turned marijuana aficionado Ricky Williams really loves dolphins, but we’re not talking about the team. Williams recently spent some time swimming with an actual dolphin, even giving it a hug.

The former football player to Instagram on Friday to share a video of the moment.

Williams has been the subject of controversy for quite some time now, considering his open support of marijuana. He was also recently featured in a Sports Illustrated documentary and longform article that discussed his career in the marijuana industry after he left the league.

Williams lost a good bit of his career due to frequent violations of the NFL drug policy.

Williams feels he has defied the stereotypes of cannabis users, as he still holds several Dolphins team records and is seen as a successful figure by many.
