Robert Garrigus is back on the green after becoming the first golfer to be suspended from the PGA Tour for cannabis. Now he's fighting the Tour's drug policies.

More than 150 current and former athletes signed a letter sent to the World Anti-Doping Agency, asking the organization to remove marijuana from its list of prohibited substances.

Organizers of the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics want foreign athletes to know that they will be punished if they try to bring cannabis to, or use cannabis in, Japan.

With talks of a new collective bargaining agreement underway, the NFL and NFL Players Association have agreed to form two new joint medical committees, partly to study marijuana as a potential pain-management tool for NFL players.

Thanks in part to the NFL’s announcement it would study cannabis as a pain management tool, the intersection of marijuana and professional sports has entered the mainstream as of late.

“For too long, I’ve watched my teammates and good friends battle with opioid addiction and leave the game with a long road still ahead; it’s time to make a change.”
