The topic of marijuana keeps coming up for NFL commissioner Roger Goodell as the Denver Broncos prepare to take on the Seattle Seahawks (yes, you know what these teams have in common when it comes to their home states).
At his annual news conference Friday before the Super Bowl, Goodell talked about the state of the league and covered a myriad of topics. In a clip recorded by ESPN, he also was asked if he would be willing to be randomly tested for marijuana.
Goodell is not above the law when it comes to league’s drug policy. “I am randomly tested,” he quipped. “And I’m happy to say that I am clean.”

According to The Associated Press, Goodell also said the NFL is “not actively considering” allowing players to use marijuana for medical reasons, but “that’s something we would never take off the table, if it can benefit our players.”
Goodell’s statements come on the heels of a Head Health Challenge event he recently attended that centered on preventing brain injuries, in which he said the league would “consider” allowing players to use medical marijuana if doctors determined it would be an effective treatment for head injuries.
