Roger Goodell open to players using medical marijuana for concussion issues

Roger Goodell open to players using medical marijuana for concussion issues

Never before has marijuana and football been so intertwined than this week, and presumably next week as well.

Though we've yet to settle on a proper name for the Super Bowl between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks, the teams from the only states where recreational marijuana is legal ("Bud Bowl" or "Smoke-A-Bowl" among the many possibilities), NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said something that might eventually literally intertwine the two subjects.

Goodell said, according to Daniel Kaplan of the Sports Business Journal, that he would consider letting NFL players use medical marijuana for concussion issues.

Goodell says if medical experts ever say medical marijuna would help with concussions then would consider allowing it.
