Tomorrow’s NFL Championship: The Marijuana Bowl

weed bowlWith their respective teams going head to head, is this year’s Super Bowl the closest thing to a national holiday commemorating the pioneering legalization of weed in Colorado and Washington? Refinery 29 notes:

The Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks will face off in Super Bowl XLVIII on February 2. The most offbeat narrative to emerge so far is the strange coincidence that the home states of both teams, Washington and Colorado, are the only ones with legalized recreational marijuana in the country. Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you the Marijuana Bowl. Or the Pot Bowl. Or the Weed Bowl.

The NFL forbids its players to use the drug, even for medical reasons. Marijuana advocacy groups point out that the drug can be helpful to players suffering from serious injuries, especially concussions. Others have pointed out that the NFL’s many tie-ins with the alcohol industry comes off as hypocritical.

    Now how am I supposed to tell the kidz “stay in school and don’t do drugs or else you won’t get anywhere in life”?

      It’s only difficult if you bother trying to keep a straight face. DARE’s known that for decades.

    using modern reasoning techniques
    it is easy to discern
    that Hestia, the goddess of hemp
    intervened in arranging the super toilet bowl

    Good that they ban players from using it. It is clearly a performance enhancing substance.
