At the U.S. Open tennis championships in New York, players have been complaining about the smell of marijuana wafting over the notorious Court 17. The source of the smell remains a mystery, but the United States Tennis Association conducted an investigation and found “no evidence” anyone was smoking pot in the stands. It is speculated that the smell may have come from Corona Park just outside the gates of the court. 


One of the BEST quotes ever:

“Court 17 definitely smells like Snoop Dogg’s living room,” said Alexander Zverev, the tournament’s 12th-seeded man who won his opening match on the court Tuesday. “Oh my God, it’s everywhere. The whole court smells like weed.”
