Looks like another NFL Player is under the microscope for being at least a little bit interested in the green revolution happening in the west of the united states. Ezekiel Elliott has already proven himself as an asset in the NFL during his preseason debut. During his Visit to Seattle, Ezekiel Elliott visited “Herban Legends” Marijuana Shop before his game. It’s good to be aware that Marijuana is legal in Washington and our rising star was not seen purchasing anything. A TMZ Sports report snapped a photo and tweeted about the encounter.

Naturally, this drew the attention of Dallas Cowboys General Manager Jerry Jones. “Well, I think that, in and of itself, the reason we are talking about it is in a way part of the learning process,” Jones said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “But it’s not good. It’s just not good. It’s just not good.” The young player was only seen browsing the store. In a world where perceptions, status tend to warp reality. Marijuana is still prohibited in the NFL and the general manager would prefer if Elliott avoids negative PR pitfalls completely. The NFL is well known to have a hard line on Marijuana and has punished many players accordingly. Randy Gregory also of the Cowboys and 2015 second-round pick will miss the first 10 games of the season because of marijuana. Rolando McClain, veteran linebacker is facing a 10-game ban because of codeine and cough syrup. The good news is that the team has supported Elliott following domestic-abuse allegations involving an ex-girlfriend. In the professional Sports circuit, the benefits of Cannabis are completely overlooked and generally frowned upon if you follow the history back over the years.
