SEAHAWKS COACH SAYS MEDICAL MARIJUANA MUST BE EXPLORED

0

NEW YORK: Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) that it is high time the National Football League explores how now-banned marijuana could medically help players cope with pain from injuries. Carroll will guide the Seahawks against the Denver Broncos on Sunday in Super Bowl 48, which features teams from the only two American states that have legalized marijuana for recreational purposes. “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. Marijuana is legal for medical purposes in 20 states, but is against federal laws and transporting it between states could violate some state laws as well.
