Ravens' Eugene Monroe Calls for Medical Marijuana in the NFL

Ravens' Eugene Monroe Calls for Medical Marijuana in the NFL

Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle Eugene Monroe has had enough of the NFL’s antiquated stance on medical marijuana.

Over his seven-year career with the Jacksonville Jaguars, he’s suffered multiple concussions, sprains, and shoulder injuries, which cause him to be in constant pain. Currently, if marijuana — medical or not — shows up on an NFL player’s mandatory drug test, penalties include fines, suspensions, and even expulsion form the league. This policy makes it so the only option for athletes to treat their pain is the addictive opiate painkillers constantly prescribed by NFL doctors.

As a consequence, exercise is a big thing in this country. Between gyms and home gym equipment, tens of millions of people in the United States engage in some form of exercise.

Statistically it is likely that a certain percentage of those exercisers are regular cannabis users. But how many use cannabis right after a workout? Does it help?

Nick Diaz's UFC Suspension for Weed Reduced in Settlement with NSAC

Nick Diaz's UFC Suspension for Weed Reduced in Settlement with NSAC

The public backlash that came with UFC fighter Nick Diaz’s five-year suspension and $165,000 fine testing positive for marijuana has actually paid off — at least a little.

After reaching a settlement with the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) earlier this month, Diaz’s punishment for his third positive test result for marijuana has been reduced to an 18-month suspension and $100,000 fine. Which is better, but still pretty fucking stupid.
