Colorado Billboard Encourages NFL Players To Smoke Kush
Should professional football players be allowed to blaze up during the season? A policy reform group in favor of legalizing “mary jane” says yes.

A billboard calling out the NFL to stop punishing players for [kush] use has popped up outside Sports Authority Field at Mile High just in time for the Broncos-Ravens NFL season opener.
The 48-foot-wide billboard–in Broncos colors, no less–produced by [kush] policy reform group the M*rij*ana Policy Project reads, “Stop driving players to drink! A safer choice is now legal (here).”
Colorado and Washington voters approved ballot measures last November which legalized recreational [kush] for adults in each state and the Department of Justice recently announced that it will let the new laws go into effect in both states.
“For years, the NFL has been punishing players for using [kush] despite the fact that it is far less harmful than alcohol, a substance widely embraced by the league,” said Mason Tvert, director of communications for the M*rij*ana Policy Project who was a key figure in the legalization effort in Colorado.
“The league would never punish a player simply for having a couple beers, so why does it penalize them for using a substance that is less toxic, less addictive, and less likely to contribute to violence.”
MPP also launched a Change.org petition aimed at NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, calling on the NFL to change its [kush] policy. At the time of publishing, the petition already had nearly 1,500 signees.
Do you think NFL players should be allowed to blow trees during the season if it’s legalized in their state?
