Don't know if this has been posted yet..

The NFL is finally easing up pot.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/13/sports/football/nfl-marijuana-policy.html

Under the new collective bargaining agreement, players who test positive for marijuana will no longer be suspended. Testing will be limited to the first two weeks of training camp instead of from April to August, and the threshold for the amount of 9-delta tetrahydrocannabinol — or THC, the psychoactive compound in marijuana — needed to trigger a positive test will be raised fourfold.

Well, at least none of our draft picks have punched a pregnant woman in the head so far... jesus. What a douchebag. Titans either keep getting very unlucky or they need to reassess how they evaluate and rank character issues in the pre-draft process.
It starts at the top......Vrabel

After all he did come from the Patriots where doing things legally was only thought to be a suggestion!!!!

There is absolutely no reason whatsoever that someone should hit a woman even if she throws a drink in the face.

My gawd - there are some real winners in this country.

Good - I have no problems with players using pot during the season to help them with the pain.

Especially with the NFL being concerned with CTE, it's amazing to me how many studies are backing up the original study done by the researcher who "discovered" THC in Israel who did a brain damage study on mice and discovered that THC help heal the brain... which for sub-concussive impacts is CRUCIAL to avoiding CTE.

I do think it's funny that they'll only test for a few weeks... and even if a positive pops, there's no suspension.

That's so dumb. Why bother in that case?

You don't need pot though for pain. CBD oils work as well if not better.
