Yesterday I wrote an article about former NFL players spreading awareness about the benefits of using medical cannabis instead of harmful painkillers. More and more NFL players are coming out with their own personal stories of battling painkiller addiction, and the misery that goes with it. They also share how using medical cannabis has helped them beat their painkiller addiction, and helped them deal with their pain more effectively.
There is an organization that was started to help spread awareness via the personal stories of former professional athletes and their use of medical marijuana. It's truly powerful stuff. The name of the organization is the Gridiron Cannabis Coalition. The organization is helping former athletes, and changing minds in the process. Below is a video that the organization put out:
Below is more information about the organization, via their website:
The Gridiron Cannabis Coalition is dedicated to the advancement of medical marijuana in the modern age. Driven by research and development, the GCC mission is committed to the evolution of the natural healing elements of the cannabis plant.
The sport of American Football is plagued with multiple ailments and diseases currently void of non-addictive treatments or cures. The GCC is determined to resolve this impasse to allow players and the public the option of an organic treatment for injury and illness.
You can find out more about the Gridiron Cannabis Coalition at their website, and on Facebook. I think this is a very cool organization, and I can't wait to see what they do in the future. If anyone from the organization is reading this, and wants to team up to spread awareness, feel free to e-mail me!
