Former NY Giants defensive lineman Leonard Marshall has partnered with a New Jersey pharmacy to market medical marijuana.

Leonard Marshall was once a destructive defensive end for the New York Giants, famously cracking Joe Montana's ribs in the 1991 NFC Championship Game.

Now Marshall hopes to ease the pain of NFL players by pushing the league to remove marijuana from its list of banned substances, the New York Daily News reported.

Home Towne Rx hopes to be among the first to provide cannabis-derived medicines if the drug is legalized in New Jersey.
