The Atlanta Journal Constitution Interviews Dr. Williams about NFLPA to Explore Marijuana as a Pain-Management Tool


FLOWERY BRANCH — The NFLPA is not leaving any stones unturned when trying to look out for the wellness of its membership, even if the latest stone is currently banned.

The union, which represents the players in the NFL, is actively looking at marijuana as a pain-management tool and plans to form a committee to study the benefits of the drug.

Marijuana is a banned substance under the terms of the current collective bargaining agreement between the union and the NFL. The agreement runs through 2020.
