NFL Considers Changing Marijuana Rules
Facing a one-year suspension for smoking weed, Browns’ star receiver Josh Gordon has inadvertently drawn attention to the NFL’s stance on marijuana use. Following the legalization of marijuana in several states, the league is about to hammer out a new drug policy. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, the NFL players union and several teams have committed to following medical opinion on whether to allow use of the drug in certain contexts. Some argue that marijuana could provide pain relief for players without damaging their livers.
