Coroner: Nothing in toxicology report contributed to Adams' death

Associated Press

GREENWOOD, S.C. -- A toxicology report shows defensive end Gaines Adams had marijuana and alcohol in his system when he died. But Greenwood County Coroner Jim Coursey says nothing found in the report contributed to Adams' death.

The report showed Adams had a blood-alcohol level of 0.021 percent. That's well below the 0.08 percent at which South Carolina drivers are considered intoxicated.

The toxicology report was obtained by The Index-Journal of Greenwood through a Freedom of Information Act request and the results were published in Saturday's newspaper.

The 26-year-old former Clemson standout died Jan. 17 in Greenwood. An autopsy showed the cause of death to be a heart attack caused by an enlarged heart.

Coursey has repeatedly said nothing found in the toxicology report contributed to Adams' death.

i believe .02 equates to about a 1/4-1/2 can of beer, or tablespoonful of jack daniels, and marijuana never killed anyone.

i kinda found it strange the entire league went into mourning and practically held a vigil before each game in each stadium the week after chris henry's death, yet absolutely nothing for gaines adams, who by all accounts, was a good guy who didnt need to turn his life around, and whos death was also an unexpected tragedy.

i guess since chris could have prevented his, made it worth all the accolades and video highlights, and kind words from the rest of the league.

For a guy his size, .02 is actually a 2-8 full beers depending on how his body reacts to alcohol.

Anyways, he's probably not an alcoholic and a lot of NFL players smoke marijuana.

:doh:

I said it was misleading because it made it sound like the alcohol and marijuana somehow contributed to his passing, which it did not.
