NFL Ending THC Positive Suspensions in New Deal


USA – National Football league players will no longer fear suspensions due to marijuana use under new collective bargaining agreement approved by team owners.

  • The new agreement would limit the testing window for THC from Four months to two weeks at the start of training camp.
  • Reduces the penalties to players who test positive for THC eliminating game suspensions for only positive tests.
  • Reduces the number of players subjected to testing to THC
  • Increases nanogram limit from 35 to 150.

If this new deal is ratified by owners this would make the NFL the newest of many to loosen restrictions on cannabis use as more and more states legalize use.

The NFL change comes after a recent charge on the MLB agreement that also reduces drug suspensions and testing.
