Baltimore Ravens' Eugene Monroe Donates $80K to Medical Marijuana Research

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, May, 13th 2016 by THCFinder

Baltimore Ravens’ Eugene Monroe has donated $80,000 to researchers studying the potential medical benefits of “cannabinoid products” for NFL players, CSN reports. The money backs a “When the Bright Lights Fade” fundraising campaign for University of Pennsylvania and John Hopkins University School of Medicine research into whether cannabinoids like CBD can help treat sports-related injuries including pain, chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) and traumatic brain injury (TBI).

“What we are looking at is a first stab at documenting cannabis use among current and former players, including the types of cannabis being used,” said University of Pennsylvania's Marcel Bonn-Miller, co-lead investigator on the studies told the International Business Times. “We are also going to document the impacts of cannabis use on players' recovery from injury. We know NFL players get banged up a bit, from concussions to chronic pain to inflammation. There is mounting evidence that certain cannabinoids, like cannabidiol, might have some beneficial effects for these conditions.”

With the sentence commutationsannounced last week, President Barack Obama has now cut more than 300 harsh drug war prison sentences, more than the previous six presidents combined. Thousands more could be eligible for commutations, but bureaucratic obstacles inside the Justice Department mean the clock is likely to run out before Obama gets a chance to free them.

As part of the Obama administration’s emphasis on criminal justice reform and reducing the federal prison population, then Attorney General Eric Holder and Deputy Assistant Attorney General James Cole called on nonviolent federal drug war prisoners to seek clemency in April 2014.
