Stephen Jones: NFL marijuana policy should be looked at

Many think that the NFL’s current policy concerning marijuana use a tad behind the times, and are calling for the policy toward the now legal in several states drug to be looked at carefully or reconsidered.

Cowboys COO, executive Vice President, and director of player personnel Stephen Jones believes the time has come to revisit the subject.

“Well, our system, our testing, has been in place for years and not unlike we do in our organization . . . we always look to see how we can do it better,” Stephen Jones told Pro Football Talk.

“I think Jerry’s opinion, my opinion, is this program, this system has been in place for a long time. I think it needs to be heavily scrutinized in terms of its results.

“Is it helping players in terms of their accountability? And, obviously, addiction is a sickness and you want to make sure — obviously, there’s accountability but it’s also a program that helps players get better. I think personally, I know Jerry and I think that it might could be done better and we just need to take a look at it. Like I said, it’s been the same program that’s been in place for many, many years and I think all things to do with the NFL, we should all want the very best for our players. We should want the very best for our organizations and we should want the very best for our fans, and that’s anything that has to do with the NFL.
