A cannabis convention was held Wednesday night at the Revention Music Center in Houston ahead of Super Bowl LI and Jim McMahon, former NFL quarterback and two-time Super Bowl champion, was among those in attendance. McMahon, who has been open with his struggles with opiate addiction, is a strong advocate for the drug and believes in its medicinal value. His mission is to remove the stigma related to cannabis and promote its benefits, not only for current and former NFL players, but for the general public.
