Women Grow Los Angeles is pleased to present Eben Britton, a former American football offensive lineman who played six seasons in the National Football League (NFL). Britton has been a Patient, Advocate and Writer on Cannabis Policy and Awareness, we welcome him to our organization and look forward to his shared insight on the high impact sports and the effect on not only the NFL, but also Women’s Soccer, and other high contact sports.
Britton was selected 39th overall in the 2009 NFL draft, he spent four years with the Jacksonville Jaguars followed by two with the Chicago Bears, last playing football in 2014. Britton started 23 games at right tackle, 7 at left guard, and 4 as a sixth eligible lineman, for a total of 34 career starts in 60 games played. He played college football at Arizona.
Britton is an advocate for removing cannabis from the list of banned substances in the NFL. Britton says he used cannabis as a preferred method of pain management during his football career, and has cited the health risks associated with pharmaceutical painkillers as a reason why players should not be punished for choosing a natural alternative. Britton is a member of the Gridiron Cannabis Coalition, a group that advocates for the NFL to change its policy on Cannabis.
Britton revealed in a September 2016 interview with the New York Post that he used cannabis before three of the NFL games he played in. Britton says that in addition to relieving the pain of his injuries, cannabis also improved his mental concentration on the football field, and that the games he played while high were some of his best performances. Britton also estimated that over 50 percent of current players use cannabis and that the number could be as high as 75 percent.
Britton graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in creative writing. As a writer he has contributed essays for the websites, Leafly and The Cauldron, Sports Illustrated and is working on a book about his experiences in the NFL.
