According to court records, Tennessee Titans player Julio Jones is facing allegations that he is illegally harvesting and selling millions of dollars of cannabis in California.
California-based cannabis company Genetixs filed the suit earlier this month against a handful of defendants including the wide receiver.
Other defendants include former Atlanta Falcons player Roddy White and White’s company, SLW Holdings — one of the five entities that comprise Genetixs.
According to the complaint, the defendants failed to report cannabis sales since March, estimating that the defendants have harvested and sold $3 million worth of cannabis per month.
“The scope of said defendants’ theft, black-market sales, money laundering, and diversion of assets and expenses without documentation or approval, is staggering and has caused, and is causing, Genetixs substantial and irreparable harm and damage,” read the 26 page lawsuit.
An attorney representing Jones, White and SLW Holdings, described the allegations in the lawsuit as “conspiracy theories.”
“The vague allegations against SLW Holdings LLC and its members Roddy White and Julio Jones are meritless,” attorney Rafe Emanuel said to The Tennessean.
“In May, SLW obtained a temporary restraining order in a related civil case to prevent unlawful conduct involving Genetixs LLC. In reply, the defendants argued conspiracy theories that were not proven by evidence in court, nor were they substantiated before any agency.”
A spokesperson for the Titans said the team was aware of the lawsuit but did not comment.
