#NFLCannabisProposal

Even in the days of legal cannabis sweeping the nation, the NFL is still against pot use among players.  Players who use cannabis, even when it heals many of their physical injuries, can still risk suspension for a few days.  What’s even more preposterous is that the Super Bowl continues to omit cannabis as part of their famous ads.

In this new decade we have various players admitting to using cannabis during their off season.  Famous athletes like Rob Gronkowski are getting off the stadium grass and heading towards the CBD grass.  Gronkowski is one of many who are advocating for cannabis use in the NFL.

And that’s when something HUGE just came around this year.

A proposed agreement from team owners would no longer suspend players who test positive for cannabis use.  This new policy would also reduce the number of players called in for testing.  Besides that, the plan would narrow the window for when tests can be administered from four months to two weeks at the beginning of training camp.

Cannabis has been growing even stronger as an industry.  It’s soaring in popularity, even HIGHER than the NFL.  With more and more NFL stars admitting to toking up off the field, the NFL is slowly swaying into a more liberal policy towards cannabis.

The proposal won’t be decided until the end of the week.  Whatever decision goes through, one thing will be for certain – This could be the start of something absolutely life-changing for both the cannabis industry and the NFL.

Super Bowl Gets No ‘Super Bowl’ Commercial

Crazy to think just last week was the 54th Super Bowl.  The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers 31-20.  It was a close game at the beginning, but Kansas City ended up winning the game.

But besides the incredible game, it was also another year of Super Bowl commercials.  These hysterical ads featured the typical products and services – Doritos, Bud Light, Burger King, McDonald’s, Pepsi, Pizza Hut, and many others.  Some featured guest celebrities that made the ad even more hilarious.  It’s the perfect type of commercials to watch while snacking on all of your Super Bowl favorites.

And even here in 2020, it was yet ANOTHER year where there was absolutely NO ads for cannabis.  Not… One… Advertisement.  Cannabis did not get its spotlight in the round of Super Bowl commercials that also featured sugary snacks, alcohol, and fast food places.  Even with cannabis being legal in more than 1/10th of America, it still has not gained its full acceptance in the sports industry.

The Super Bowl is one of the biggest sporting events in the nation (besides others like The Olympics or the NBA championship game).  Curbing a popular product like cannabis from the Super Bowl only hurts both the sporting and cannabis industry alike.  In this case, The Super Bowl doesn’t allow cannabis to get its true exposure to millions of audiences and yet it shuns away audiences who watch the Super Bowl and use cannabis as well.  Nobody wins in this decision.

If you want to do a commercial marathon right, you have to reach out to the broader audience.  There are lots of people within the cannabis culture that consume the same seven-layer cheese dip and that six-foot submarine sandwich just like us.  Only they get more of the munchies in the process.

With that, cannabis deserves its spot in the Super Bowl commercial marathon among side brands like Coca-Cola and Corona.  Cannabis has a right to be shared among not just the cannabis culture family, but to the average American family as well.
