Pot and the NFL: Jake Plummer
This week’s player testimonial is from former quarterback Jake Plummer. The talented and enigmatic quarterback known as “Jake the Snake” walked away from the game when he was just 32-years-old, leaving millions of dollars on the table.
Plummer’s reasoning for leaving professional football is complicated but cannabis helped the transition. Now, he’s working to raise funds to study how marijuana – and CBD in particular – could help the symptoms of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a neurodegenerative disease that has been discovered in an alarming number of deceased NFL players.

Smoking Pot, No College May Not Bar You from Police Work
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Police departments are relaxing age-old standards for accepting recruits, from lowering educational requirements to forgiving some prior drug use, to try to attract more people to their ranks.
The changes are designed to deal with decreased interest in a job that offers low pay, rigorous physical demands and the possibility of getting killed on duty all while under intense public scrutiny. There’s also the question of how to encourage more minorities to become police officers.
“We have a national crisis,” said Eugene O’Donnell, a former New York City police officer and now a lecturer at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York. “For the first time in my life, I would say I could never recommend the job. Who’s going to put on a camera, go into urban America where people are going to critique every move you make? You’re going to be demonized.”
