Marijuana Bowl: Super Bowl 2014 could be a real high for stadium fans

A marijuana bowl could possibly occur at the Super Bowl if the Colorado and Washington teams make the final cut after the playoffs.

The Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks are in the only two teams who exist in states legalized by marijuana. This has presented speculation that it could be an all-around pot fest, NewsOxy reports Jan. 19.

Allen St. Pierre -- executive director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws -- the Super Bowl may very well feature “the two most pro-cannabis-legalization cities in the U.S.” He sarcastically renamed it “The Super Oobie Doobie Bowl.” It would also be the first marijuana bowl to ever emerge.

It is illegal for NFL players to use marijuana even if they live in a state that legalizes pot since it is banned under the league’s "collective bargaining agreement." There are lobbyists pressuring the NFL organization to stop penalizing players who fail drug tests over the presence of marijuana in their system. They believe it may actually help them with concussions or other forms of injury. The National Hockey League only tests for performance-enhancing drugs and laws on marijuana use are relaxing for Olympic athletes.

Even if a possible marijuana bowl does not end up taking place, St. Pierre believes the viewing audience could hear plenty about pot even if Seattle and Denver don’t win their games.

“I think there will be more references to pot going into the Super Bowl week media hype than any previous NFL game in history,” he said.

A marijuana bowl would be something no one would ever forget. The Super Bowl on its own makes for its own hype, placing pot in the whole mix would be quite a combination.
