With a growing call to allow professional footballs players to use medical cannabis, a new organization has formed to help push the conversation forward. The Gridiron Cannabis Coalition was formed in part by former NFL player Kyle Turley, who played as an offensive lineman for the New Orlean Saints, the St. Louis Rams and the Kansas City Chiefs.
“The Gridiron Cannabis Coalition is dedicated to the advancement of medical marijuana in the modern age”, states the group’s about us section on their website. “Driven by research and development, the GCC mission is committed to the evolution of the natural healing elements of the cannabis plant.”
They continue; “The sport of American Football is plagued with multiple ailments and diseases currently void of non-addictive treatments or cures. The GCC is determined to resolve this impasse to allow players and the public the option of an organic treatment for injury and illness.”
