Marijuana may now be legalized in Denver, but Tom Brady insists that the New England Patriots' minds are fully focused on beating the Denver Broncos on Sunday night.

During a recent interview, the quarterback was questioned about the recent law change. Brady said that he and his teammates have not discussed the matter and added: "This is a very important game for us and it’s a business trip."

The first legal sales of marijuana in the world took place throughout Colorado in January and the topic appeared to have caught this interviewer's imagination as he probed the signal caller on Friday.

Patriots' coach, Bill Belichick was equally calm when questioned about the drug: "I think we know what the NFL policy is on that." said Belichick alluding to the NFL's drug policy.

John Fox, the Denver Broncos head coach also addressed the topic with his players prior to their divisional round matchup with the San Diego Chargers. He warned his players that although the state allows the use of the drug, the NFL is the law the players must listen to.

A similar initiative to that in Colorado was also passed in Washington, however retailers are yet to open in Seattle meaning that Pete Carroll and his Seattle Seahawks team need not worry about any such distractions just yet.
