no doubt it was miss mary jane.
hes BFF with Nick & Nate PLUS his dad just died a while back, a little herbal medicine probably found its way into little Jakey's head after a beer or two.

I hope they deem his boring ass win over Short Fuse a NC now.

I read it wrong and thought it was for being a banned substance, like some kind of sleep aid.

Got to respect Jake for being out in front of this one. I'm not a fan of his but I appreciate the honesty.

Everyone deserves a second chance.

for manning up.

Didn't work still boring.

His honesty is refreshing though.

I doubt it was a performance enhancer. Almost definitely it was pot or something similar.

So I'm not sure how it was supposed to "work."

I just can't understand why any athlete with SO MUCH to lose would ever risk being caught using any unauthorized substance of any kind and subsequently be forced "not to earn money" (by fighting) therefore jeopardizing what they have already worked so hard for...

Wow - even I had trouble reading my comment just now, lol, probably because I'm high
