You’re probably wondering: Does Jared Fogle smoke weed? The incarcerated former Subway spokesperson doesn’t necessarily look like a guy that smokes weed, but you never know. We decided to find out if the embattled Fogle does (or in his case, did) smoke weed. Let’s take a look.
Who is Jared Fogle?
Before Jared Fogle became public enemy number one, he was the long-tenured spokesperson for Subway. His odd diet, which consisted of mostly Subway six-inch sandwiches, catapulted him into the national spotlight.
Fogle lost over 200 pounds on the “Subway” diet. For lunch, he would typically have a six-inch turkey sub with a bag of Baked Lay’s potato chips and a Diet Coke. His dinner was usually a six-inch veggie sub with a Diet coke. Fogle also started exercising more frequently, including walking to Subway.
Fogle’s story was first made public in 1998 after a former college roommate wrote an article for the Indiana Daily Student. Fogle was soon featured in an issue of Men’s Health in an article titled “Stupid Diets. . . that Work!” A Chicago-area Subway took notice of the feature and brought it to the attention of a marketing agency.
The first ad premiered on New Year’s Day 2000, and it featured Jared and his story. Jared became a cultural icon seemingly overnight and helped grow Subway’s sales tremendously.
By 2013, he had appeared in over 300 commercials for Subway. He even made appearances in several movies such as “Supersize Me,” “Jack and Jill,” and “Sharknado 2” and 3.
In 2015, the FBI raided Fogle’s home during a child pornography investigation. They eventually found texts Fogle sent to a Subway employee in which he tried to arrange a sexual encounter with her 16-year-old cousin.
Fogle eventually pleaded guilty to the charges of distributing and receiving child pornography and traveling to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor.
He was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Subway has since removed all references to Jared on their website and other platforms.
Puff or Pass?
Anyways, back to the question at hand. Does Jared Fogle smoke weed? Well, at the moment, that’s an obvious no, considering he’s incarcerated. But is there a chance that he did in the past? There’s not much evidence to prove that he was a smoker, unfortunately.
However, he did become obese through eating a ton of junk food and lack of exercise. Maybe he constantly had a case of the munchies? That’s a bit of a stretch, but you never know.
Additionally, Fogle has admitted to abusing alcohol in the past, so it does appear he’s not opposed to substances that make you feel good. While weed is clearly not the same as alcohol, it can be considered a vice to those who are dependent on it.
Final Hit: Does Jared Fogle Smoke Weed?
After some research, it appears Fogle is not a weed smoker. He could smoke on the down low, but unlike his legal cases, there’s not much evidence to indict him on. Perhaps if Fogle were a weed smoker, he’d be able to make better life decisions. Either way, it looks like Fogle doesn’t smoke weed.
