It's not just the kissing he said was responsible.
Alex Salazar and her family had reportedly visited the rural parts of India around the time of the doping incident and subsequently procured the medicine for a sinus problem. A local "chemist" there directed her to take one capsule of Moxylong per day for a period of two weeks. USADA said the sides told the arbitrator that Roberts and Salazar "kissed frequently and passionately" when they were together, including on March 24, when Roberts was initially tested.
It has been acknowledged that incidents such as Roberts's case are rare.
Here's the thing though, Roberts isn't the first track athlete to blame KISSING on a positive drug test.

After conferring with two different doctors, the arbiter officially ruled "this was not a case of intentional doping".
USADA accepted the ruling on June 24, rescinding calls to ban the athlete, who went on to compete at the USATF Outdoor Championships that were now underway. "Roberts has met his burden of proof".
"He had no idea that kissing his girlfriend could lead to his ingesting a prohibited substance".
The typical excuses we see when an athlete fails a drug test tends to range from "I didn't take it" to "I don't know how it ended up in my system" or "that's impossible".
Canadian pole vaulter Shawn Barber was also cleared after failing a doping test for cocaine when he proved he accidentally ingested trace amounts of the substance after kissing an escort he hired the night before.
