Default NFLPA warns players of upcoming drug testing

Quote:
The union representing NFL players, the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA), put out an alert Thursday letting players know they have a little more than 30 days left before they can be randomly tested for banned substances, Derek Rosenfeld of the Huffington Post reports..

Marijuana can stay in someone's system for up to 30 days, so it's really aimed at players who use marijuana. If they stop using marijuana now they should be ok if they get tested (beginning on 4/20, coincidentally).

It's well-understood that players are using marijuana (and some even prefer it over alcohol and prescription pills), and evidence shows great potential for marijuana to help with concussions.

Commissioner Roger Goodell has expressed a willingness to consider letting players use medical marijuana if medical experts deem it a legitimate option.

good thing SF doesn't test members who post in the locker room section.
