DENVER (CBS4) – There’s a strain of marijuana named after Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning and his people aren’t happy about it.
CBS4 Investigator Rick Sallinger found the pot being sold in medical marijuana dispensaries in the Denver area.
The big face off is set for Sunday as Peyton Manning will take on the New York Giants and his brother, Eli Manning, who also has a strain of marijuana named after him. Apparently there are no royalties involved.. . .
The Peyton Manning pot label says it’s good for pain, anxiety, nausea and headaches, while the Eli Manning strain claims to help with multiple sclerosis, glaucoma and arthritis. It’s priced at approximately $280 an ounce.
Naturally, legal action is being threatened over the use of the elder Manning brother’s name.
But, to me, the answer is simple. Rather than name a couple of varieties of marijuana after two very hard-working men — you don’t get to be a starting quarterback in the NFL if you aren’t a hard worker; just ask JaMarcus Russell — perhaps they could be more appropriately named after two other Mannings, Bradley and “Chelsea.” There you’d have a waste-case drug named after
two waste case people one idiotic waste case criminal and psycho.
