NFL Player Using Marijuana to Treat Crohn’s Disease Faces 10-Game Suspension

Yesterday, the Buffalo Bills announced that its 24-year-old offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson received a 10-game suspension from the NFL for violating its controlled substance policy. The 6’8″, 330-pound University of Miami pro did not get caught using performance enhancing drugs, but rather tested positive for marijuana, a drug he has been using to treat his Crohn’s disease. This comes after Henderson served a four-game suspension at the beginning of the 2016 season for the same reason. Worst of all, he was just beginning to earn his starting job back at right tackle.

Henderson was diagnosed with Crohn’s towards the end of last season. He subsequently underwent two surgeries to combat the effects of the disease and lost a great deal of weight as a result. For those that are unfamiliar, Crohn’s is a painful and sometimes life-threatening disease that impacts the lining of the intestinal tract. Many people who suffer from it use marijuana to minimize its effects, rather than turning to steroids.

Although the league has recently announced that it will not amend its drug policy despite widespread legalization of marijuana in the States, many players, both past and present, are fighting to change the NFL’s approach. ESPN polled more that 200 current players about the topic earlier this month, to which the majority agreed that the drug should be legalized and accepted by the league as an alternative to approved painkillers.

This story just adds fuel to the fire.

Henderson’s suspension begins immediately and will apply to all regular season and postseason games until the suspension is completed. The young athlete may pursue legal action against the NFL to fight yesterday’s ruling.

Chronos 1.4 Is the High-Speed Camera You Didn't Know You Needed

High-speed cameras are exactly what they sound like, cameras capable of recording at extremely high frames per second (fps), to slow down fast moving objects and things the human eye would normally never be able to see in real time. However, with great high-speed recording power comes great power and financial irresponsibility. Commercial-grade pieces are bulky, some even requiring assembly and can run anywhere from a couple thousand dollars up to $100,000+ USD.

All of this will change thanks to David Kronstein and his Chronos 1.4, originally announced in September. Although this is not the first “affordable” piece of high-speed camera tech, the price point and specs make this more enticing than others. The build includes a 1.4 gigapixel-per-second throughput which will allow you to capture high-speed video at up to 1280×1024 resolution. Frame rate ranges from 1,057 fps at full resolution and increases up to 21,600 fps at minimum resolution.

This cool gadget will start at $2,499 USD and can be backed at Kickstarter until December 23. Let us know what type of projects you would take on with one of these.
