    This is what I hate. Nobody gives a flying fuck about health and addiction until marijuana comes into the equation. I don't think anyone honestly believes that opiates are in the slightest bit less dangerous than marijuana. The entire debate is one of the biggest jokes in American history and I don't understand why it's even an issue when the vast majority of legal substances are undoubtedly more harmful.

    Opioid and heroin addiction is no joke. Far too many get addicted. It doesn't matter who you are or how strong your "will power" is. Using literally changes your brain and fairly quickly. Once your brain has been altered, the addiction takes hold and nothing in life is enjoyable or fun or relaxing or calm or happy unless you get a fix. Everyone wants to experience happiness as human beings and opioids zap you of that natural happiness and the ONLY thing that truly makes an addicted user happy is an opioid. That is why its so hard to stop long term. The sickness/withdrawal once you stop is atrocious and unlike anything you can experience. I can't even explain what it is like. People say its like the flu, but that is NOT a good comparison as opioid withdrawal is 5x worse. And you will be awake the entire goddamn time and have to experience every single second of it. I know some people need to use them long term and doctors don't explain just how miserable life can become.

    Of course it is. I bet Big Pharma owns the NFL just like they own the government. So, not a chance.

    How many of the people commenting don't know you can INJEST CBD's (the medical part of marijuana) without the THC (the part that gets you high)? It's amazing what you can learn when you step away from your indoctrination and actually RESEARCH a subject...and I won't even get started on all the applications for hemp.

    I totally agree that marijuana is safer than painkillers & less addictive but I also know marijuana can be used as a masking agent when testing for steroids.

    Roger goodell needs to quit as commissioner anyway who cares about his opinion anyway and there are such things as edibles and oils that players can use. Also i want to see his research behind his opinion
