It is no secret that marijuana is good for pain. It is equally well know that professional football players have one of the most painful career in the world. So it was no surprise when the owner of the Dallas Cowboys urged the NFL to get rid of its ban on marijuana.

Jones was reminded that the issue falls under the umbrella of collective bargaining, which would require the players to make one or more concessions in exchange for significant changes to the marijuana prohibition.

Whether or not players would make any concession to lift the ban on marijuana remains to be seen.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, stated the following:

“Jerry Jones also raised the question of the NFL’s position on marijuana. Jones, per a source who heard the comments, wants the league to drop its prohibition on marijuana use. Jones was reminded that the issue falls under the umbrella of collective bargaining, which would require the players to make one or more concessions in exchange for significant changes to the marijuana prohibition.

Separately, the league office reiterated to PFT its position that any changes to the substance-abuse policy would occur within the confines of labor negotiations, and that the league is willing to listen to the medical community about any potential changes to the rules regarding marijuana.”
