NFL to Consider Allowing Medical Marijuana

The perceptions that have surrounded marijuana for the last few decades are starting to erode and even the NFL is looking into the medicinal properties of marijuana.

Commissioner Roger Goodell said Thursday the NFL would consider allowing athletes to use marijuana to treat concussions and other head injuries if medical experts deemed it a legitimate solution.

“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.”
