These long time NFL stars have witnessed firsthand the dire need for medical marijuana in the National Football League.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell spoke at the annual State of the NFL media event on Friday, saying there are no plans to change the league’s policy on medical marijuana, despite two-thirds of NFL franchises being in states that allow its use.
“We always review our drug policy. That is something that our medical professionals do on a regular basis,” Goodell stated. “We are not restricted, obviously, by the state laws. It’s an NFL policy and we believe it’s the correct policy for now and in the best interest of our players and the long term health of our players.”
Given the disastrous effects of prescription drug use and abuse in athletics, cannabis in professional sports is an extremely hot topic that will be discussed in depth at the Southwest Cannabis Conference and Expo by an extensive panel of experts including NFL greats Jim McMahon, Ricky Williams and Kyle Turley of The Gridiron Cannabis Coalition.
The Southwest Cannabis Conference and Expo will be held February 27 – 28 at the Forth Worth Convention center. More than 300 exhibitors and thousands of attendees from across the Southwest are expected to attend the two-day event.
