NFL Offers to Study Marijuana as Pain Management Option… Finally
For a very long time, the National Football Players Association (NFLPA) has been pleading with the powerful NFL leadership to lighten up on medical marijuana and allow players to use it for pain relief and conditions stemming from head trauma, which the vast majority of NFL players suffer at some point in their careers.

Considering that as recently as this past spring, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell called weed addictive and unhealthy, this recent news feels like a huge step forward.

But then he saw the saw the island’s medical marijuana industry start to expand, and found one of the rare new jobs opening up on the island, overseeing some 2,000 plants at the Natural Ventures facility.
“This is an economic niche that we can grab on to,” he said, though he added, “A lot of people told me, ‘What are you doing with your life? You’re throwing away your future.'”
