While the Manning brothers are set to face off on the football field Sunday – Peyton with the Denver Broncos and Eli with the New York Giants – another competition of sorts has been brewing on the streets of Colorado.
Two strains of medical marijuana selling in Denver have been named after the brothers, and Peyton Manning’s people are not happy about it, according to local TV station CBS4.
A representative is threatening legal action against those selling the strain named after the Broncos’ quarterback, saying “the marijuana growers and sellers don’t have his permission for using his name for commercial purposes.”
The vendor says the plants were named after the Manning brothers because the seeds were related, but they are said to relieve different ailments. According to CBS4:
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.
No word on which strain is more effective.
Good Meds, which operates dispensaries and a cultivation facility in the Denver area, offers a 10 percent discount for those who wear a Broncos jersey while making a purchase on game day, according to its website.
