SEAHAWKS COACH Pete Carroll says it's time to reconsider banning pot in the NFL.
Now before you get your shoulder pads all twisted, take note: He's talking medicinal purposes only.
Medicinal marijuana is legal in 20 states, including Washington, home to the Seattle Seahawks.
Carroll was asked his thoughts on recent comments by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell concerning the use of weed if it were shown to help players who had suffered concussions.
"I would say that we have to explore and find ways to make our game a better game and take care of our players in whatever way possible," Carroll said at Super Bowl media session yesterday. "Regardless of what other stigmas might be involved, we have to do this because the world of medicine is doing this."
