NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Court records show that Tennessee Titans wide receiver Julio Jones faces allegations of illegally harvesting and selling millions of dollars of cannabis in California.

California-based cannabis company Genetixs filed the suit recently against a handful of defendants including Jones, former Atlanta Falcons player Roddy White and White’s company, SLW Holdings.

The complaint claims the defendants failed to report cannabis sales since March, estimating they’ve harvested and sold $3 million in cannabis per month.

A spokesperson for the Titans said the team has no comment on the lawsuit.

An attorney representing Jones, White and SLW Holdings, told The Tennessean newspaper the lawsuit’s allegations are “conspiracy theories.
