This week in Charles Barkley Says Something Funny, we've got the TNT analyst talking about Dallas Cowboys rookie Ezekiel Elliot's purported pre-game visit to a marijuana dispensary in Seattle earlier this week.

Here's what he said to 94 WIP on Friday, via CSNPhilly.com:

"That's just stupid, man. He's got to be smarter than that. I mean, that's just stupid. It's like Ryan Lochte, that's just stupid. Just tell the truth and apologize ?

"I'm like, c'mon man, you gotta be smarter than that. I'm not a marijuana guy, I think I've told you, I smoked pot like five times in my life. All it did was [make] me want to eat potato chips. It was a waste of my time. I didn't feel no euphoria, it didn't take me to no special place, I just said, 'Do we have any more potato chips in the state of Alabama or Pennsylvania?' ?

"This guy thinks he can just walk into a marijuana store, legal or not, it's just a bad look. Sometimes I watch sports today, I'm like, you've got to have some common sense."

Funny, but also makes me think Charles Barkley should advise young athletes who turn pro.
