When the Bright Lights Fade gains new Pro Athlete to Speak Out

RoC is so excited and honored to have Derrick Morgan join the When the Bright Lights Fade campaign and speak up in regards to furthering research into cannabinoid therapy for CTE in the NFL!! Derrick and Eugene sit down with Yahoo News' Katie Couric to talk about their efforts. We were thrilled to have Derrick, Eugene and the Yahoo News team join us at our 3rd Annual RoC Golf Tournament.

From Yahoo:

    "When NFL lineman Eugene Monroe spoke out publicly against the NFL’s ban on marijuana, it sparked a national conversation about the merits of cannabis as an alternative method of pain management for players.

    “What I noticed was that former players would openly speak about their experiences being addicted to opioids that they were prescribed by their team doctors,” Monroe told Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric.

    Monroe, who was recently released by the Baltimore Ravens, has found an ally for his cause in Tennessee Titans linebacker Derrick Morgan.

    In an exclusive interview, Morgan told Couric, “I think for the NFL to say that cannabis does not benefit the long-term health of its players without actually having gone and done the research — I don’t think that’s an accurate statement.”
