Watch: Former Players Urge NFL To Permit Medical Marijuana Use

Former National Football League players like Kyle Turley and Ricky Williams have formed the Gridiron Cannabis Coalition to pressure the league to permit the use of medical marijuana.

Turley told ABC15 Arizona that players were "popping pain pills like candy," and medical marijuana could be a more effective way to treat pain associated with injuries.

"There's nothing that's gonna change about this sport as far as the injuries are concerned," said Turley. "What needs to change is how we address these injuries and the medications that are given to treat them."

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said the league will have to "follow the science" on this issue, but they do not support sanctioning marijuana use at this time.
