LSU Star running back Spencer Ware and star cornerbacks Tyrann Mathieu and Tharold Simon were suspended for a game after testing positive for fake pot.  Since they play in Louisiana, chances are it was version 3.

Players are subject to random drug screens during the season, and I assume all three players thought they would pass the drug screen.

Although synthetic cannabis does not produce positive results in drug tests for cannabis, it is possible to detect its metabolites in human urine. The synthetic cannabinoids contained in synthetic cannabis products have been made illegal in many European countries. On November 24, 2010, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency announced it would use emergency powers to ban fake pot within a month .[3] Prior to the announcement, several US states had already made them illegal under state law. As of March 1, 2011, five cannabinoids, JWH-018, JWH-073, CP-47,497, JWH-200, and cannabicyclohexanol are now illegal in the US.[
