Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll believes that the NFL should look into allowing the use of medical cannabis, as a means of taking the best possible care of its players.

“I would say that we have to explore and find ways to make our game a better game and take care of our players in whatever way possible,”Carroll said in a press conference today, the first day of practice for the Seahawks prior to the Superbowl. “Regardless of what other stigmas might be involved, we have to do this because the world of medicine is doing this.”

The conversation surrounding medical cannabis in the NFL was brought to the forefront recently when Commissioner Roger Goodell stated that he’s open to eventually allowing players to use it.

“We will follow medicine, and if they determine this could be [of]proper usage in any context, we will consider that”, he said.

  1. As a person who has seen this coming for years, I say, it’s about time. I own DIETWEED.COM. We want to study marajuana as a diet and fitness aid. We also aim to prevent diabetes and reduce the countries $480 billion a year cost for diabetes treatment. Your welcome America.

  2. Most NFL players played in college. If they also smoked then, why would going to the NFL make them quit?

  3. I will make a prediction: It’s going to be Washington, because Colorado got to go first with legalization. In other words, it’s Washington’s turn to win.

  4. Um… I think “elite” players already smoke it. Now it would just be legal for them to consume it. All the NFL has to do is change a little wording in its contracts, stop drug testing for cannabis, you know, things like that. :)

  5. I’m still trying to decide who to pick – does John Fox have anything to say on this subject?

  6. I LOVE weed and I LOVE football. However my experience with both says that even if its allowed for players to use, no one would recommend it and the elite players will likely not be weed smokers. Maybe in college, not the NFL.

  7. NFL Players: Come out of the closet! Tell your coaches, trainers, and team doctors about the benefits of medical cannabis!
