Cowboys | Carter says marijuana had a role in his 2004 release

Jean-Jacques Taylor, of the Dallas Morning News, reports former Dallas Cowboys QB Quincy Carter said that marijuana use played a role in his abrupt release from the team before the 2004 season. As noted earlier, Carter signed with the Montreal Allouettes of the CFL Tuesday, April 4. "I made a mistake in the past. That mistake was for marijuana. I'm excited about getting a fresh start with Montreal and I want to put the things in the past behind me," Carter said. "When you walk around and people think you're on cocaine or bipolar, it hurts. None of that was the case." Carter said he will spend the rest of the CFL's offseason in Canada preparing for the upcoming season, which begins at the end of May.
