Back in August, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers opened up about his experience with ayahuasca, a plant-based psychedelic.
This Tuesday on The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers was once again asked about ayahuasca. McAfee referred to ayahuasca as a medicine.
"Ayahuasca is not a drug," Rodgers said via USA Today Sports. "It has properties that have hallucinogenic abilities. But it's not a drug. We're talking about plants here.
This is a very important point to make. Words are constructed in society to create a certain prejudice against certain things.
I think it's important to go over this ridiculous tangent to how words are used to create bias.
Those biases create fear and those fears prevent people from doing their research or putting forth their views and truth in a situation.
Judging by the reactions on social media, NFL fans are officially tired of hearing Rodgers talk about ayahuasca.
Packers fans thought Alan Lazard was pretending to give ayahuasca to his teammates after his touchdown in Week 2 against the Chicago Bears.
By the time those overseas touchdown celebrations take place in Green Bay, people will be talking about ayahuasca.
