Sources have confirmed that the NFL has reached out to the NFL Players Association offering to look into the usage of marijuana for pain management.
To date the usage of marijuana is banned in the league.
The letter was originally reported on Tuesday by The Washington Post and so far there has been no response by the NFLPA yet.
“We look forward to working with the players’ association on all issues involving the health and safety of our prayers,” said Joe Lockhart, the NFL’s executive vice president of communications.
The letter the NFL wrote touched on a few “potential research” areas including pain management for acute and chronic conditions. The league has previously indicated that they were doing a study regarding marijuana being used as a pain management tool.
NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith told in The Washington Post in January that the union was working on a proposal that would be a “less punitive” approach using recreational marijuana.
“I do think that issues of addressing it more in a treatment and less punitive measure is appropriate,” Smith said in January. “I think it’s important to look at whether there are addiction issues. And I think it’s important to not simply assume recreation is the reason it’s being used.”
