After a recent trip to one of the weed capitals of America, the state of Washington, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is now considering legalizing marijuana for NFL players.
Former player Nate Jackson recently said in an interview that he believes the drug helped his injury recovery during his career, and it seems now that Goodell has taken those views on board.
Whether Goodell decides to legalize the drug will depend upon medical evidence to support the theory that it can help recovery.
Injuries such as concussions are a part of a huge debate in the NFL currently, and Daniel Kaplan reported on Twitter today that Goodell would be on board with weed if it can be proven to help with concussion injuries.
"Goodell says if medical experts ever say medical marijuana would help with concussions then would consider allowing it," said Kaplan.
Obviously if NFL players were allowed to smoke cannabis, they could only do it in the states of Washington and Colorado that have legalized the drug.
