Ricky Williams says he’s given up marijuana for good this time.

Williams, who is now an assistant football coach at the University of the Incarnate Word, says “he turns down weed all the time.”

“When I go places, people offer me pot all the time,” Williams said. “And then I have to say, ‘Well, I’m sorry, I don’t do that anymore.’ And they look so disappointed.”
