Recently Released Ravens OL Eugene Monroe Says Will Never Stop Pushing For Medical Marijuana
Veteran offensive lineman Eugene Monroe is now looking for a new team after the Baltimore Ravens released him on Wednesday when trade talks with the New York Giants fell through.
Whichever team requires his services would have to deal with his stance on the NFL allowing players to use medical marijuana, as the OL stated via Twitter.
“I will not be returning to the Ravens this season. It’s never easy moving on – I love Baltimore and its fans – but this is all part of the game. Despite the current uncertainties, one thing is for sure: whatever happens in terms of my professional football career, I will never stop pushing for the League to accept medical cannabis as a viable option for pain management. I will do everything I can to ensure the generations of NFL players after me won’t have to resort to harmful and addictive opioids as their only option for pain management. I’ve been working hard this offseason to recover from my injuries. I am cleared to play and excited to get back on the field and compete.”

Monroe is serious about his cause and stated that was one of the reasons the Ravens started distancing themselves from him.
@Ravens continue to distance themselves from me and my cause. I invite you all to do some research. I won’t stop. This is for my brothers
