Makes sense for medical and legal.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is leaving the door open on medical marijuana use for pro football players.

Although itís been legal to buy and use marijuana in Colorado since Jan. 1, smoking marijuana is still illegal under the NFLís collective bargaining agreement.

When asked if a player might ever be allowed to use medical marijuana in states where itís legal, Goodell told ESPN.com he could envision a time when players use medical marijuana in states where itís legal.

"I don't know what's going to develop as far as the next opportunity for medicine to evolve and to help either deal with pain or help deal with injuries, but we will continue to support the evolution of medicine," he said.
