Thats stupid. It's banned by the NFL, end of discussion. If he cant stop himself from lighting up and losing millions then thats his own fault.


Exactly. It doesn't matter what your views are on weed. Point is it's banned and all he had to do was no smoke it.... 7 times. The guy lacks self control/discipline/maturity etc. It isn't about the weed anymore, this guy obviously has much bigger problems.

it isnt about weed, yet you call him immature and say he lacks self control?

He said hes bipolar and using weed-natural medicine to treat his bipolar disorder instead of pharmaceutical drugs and yet he is immature for that and lacks self control?

and my point is , its legal and being legalized in states to recreational use and and is legal to use as a medicine well over half the country, as in you go to your family doctor and they will write you a subscription for it like any other medicine.

These rules are from the 40's bro. They make zero sense in modern times.

Why is it banned by the league? Is it a performance enhancing drug?

Its legal in 8 American states , and legal for medical use in 30+ states with more states legalizing over the next couple years.

Makes no sense.

Specially with all the scientific data there on its use as a medicine and NFL has some of the worst internal medicine practices in the nation, i think its time for them to lift the ban and let players chose for them selves how they want to treat there pain or chronic issues and not just be forced to take pills-opiates.


It's technically not legal in any state. Federal law trumps state law.

The rules are the rules. Don't like it; don't play.

I mean, eventually someone is going to and they might win, no? That's why you have groups of lawyers lined up behind weed stores to defend them if they ever get raided?

The problem is that Marijuana is NOT an FDA approved treatment for Bipolar disorder and in fact research on the subject suggests that Marijuana actually worsens mania and depression in patients who are Bipolar.

This isn't a case of a player using a legitimately proven effective treatment (as it would be if he were using Marijuana to help pain management) and is rather an example of a player trying to make a bs excuse as to why he continues using.

Well its going to become law in many states soon.

Quote:
A bill introduced in the Oregon senate would mean no more tests for cannabis use as a condition for employment and no more fear that casual use of the now-legal-in-Oregon substance could cost you your job.

Senate Bill 301, first read on Jan. 7, "provides that conditioning employment on refraining from using any substance that is lawful to use in this state is unlawful employment practice."

It's a pretty complex issue that I really can't delve into in the open forum. Is it possible to win? Yes. However, it's unlikely.

You also ignored the bolded wording in that statute.

As for Gregory, like Justin Blackmon, it seems he's made his choice. He chose weed over football.

He can choose to work in the NFL and not smoke or not work in the NFL and smoke. Until the NFL allows medical weed for pain, those are the rules. Fair or not fair is irrelevant. He would have nothing close to a legal leg to stand on.
