What The 4 Biggest Pro Sports Leagues Think About Cannabis

  • And considering the long seasons full of road trips and the amount of time players often have to kill while in uniform, waiting for something to happenwhich might be later that week, if youre a pitchermarijuana would be a good fit for players, even if the MLB didnt have some…
  • According to league honchos responding to Warriors coach Steve Kerrs admission that he tried medical marijuana for his back pain, there apparently could be a medical exception loophole for players to use cannabis under the supervision of a physician.
  • Its not as freewheeling as baseball, but when compared to other pro sports leagues like the NFL, where a player who merely visited a legal marijuana dispensary while on a trip to Seattle had to issue an apology, the NBA is absolutely 420-friendly.
  • National Football League – – The NFL is notorious for having the strictest rules on cannabis use of all four major pro sports leagues in America.
  • Keep in mind the height of Williamss career was a decade ago, before any states had legalized recreational cannabis, and before medical marijuana was available in football hotbeds like Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York, where the leagues headquarters are located.

How to Cut Down on Traffic Stops and Save Lives: Legalize Weed ·

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • While a recent study done by Stanford Universitys Open Policing Project showed that traffic stops fell significantly for all racial groups, black and Hispanic drivers are still searched at higher rates than white motorists.
  • The Center for Investigative Reporting in partnership with The Marshall Project looked at stop and searches conducted by Washington and Colorado state patrols before and after weed became legal in those two states in 2012.
  • Lets start with Washington State where the search rate of black drivers over the age of 21 decreased by about 34 percent after legalization, according to the analysis published by The Marshall Project.
  • While racial disparities remained, before and after legalization, black motorists over 21 were searched at a rate roughly twice that of white drivers.
  • Now for Colorado: The search rate of African American drivers over 21 dropped by nearly half, while for Hispanic drivers it fell by 58 percent.
