Adams had marijuana, alcohol in system

Chicago Bears defensive end Gaines Adams had alcohol and marijuana in his system when he died, according to a toxicology report obtained by the Associated Press.

However, neither substance was determined to be responsible for the 26-year-old’s January 17 death. An autopsy had shown that Adams died from a heart attack caused by an enlarged heart.

According to the report, Adams’ blood-alcohol level was 0.021 percent at the time of his death, which is well below the .08 percent permissible to drive in the state of South Carolina.

Adams, a four-year veteran out of Clemson, was traded from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the Chicago Bears back in October. The defensive end recorded seven tackles and one forced fumble in ten games with the Bears in 2009.
