Quote :
If medical experts deem using marijuana as a legitimate solution to treat concussions and other head injuries, the NFL would consider allowing athletes to use it, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Thursday.

While attending a sponsored event, which announced the first 16 winners of the $20 million “Head Health Challenge,” Goodell was asked about the topic and didn’t dodge his recent comments on drug use by active players.

"I'm not a medical expert. We will obviously follow signs. We will follow medicine and if they determine this could be a proper usage in any context, we will consider that," Goodell said. "Our medical experts are not saying that right now."

Both the Seahawks and Broncos, who are playing in Super Bowl XLVIII, reside in states where the drug is legal for recreational use. A report on HBO’s “Real Sports with Bryan Gumbel” estimated that somewhere between 50 percent and 60 percent of the league’s active players regularly use the drug to deal with pain.

I don't think there are too many players in the NFL, punters and kickers the exception, that aren't in enough pain to claim medical use of marijuana

I still laugh at the term "medical pot". It was originally suppose to be prescribed for Chemo patients (for the purpose of pain relief and increasing appetite).

Here in California, people smoke it for "stress related reasons". If a person can smoke it for stress, then we should all get prescriptions!
