The Manning brothers have a marijuana problem, but not in the way you might think,
A number of Denver-area marijuana dispensaries have been selling strains of their product named after Peyton and Eli Manning, but a representative for the elder Manning is threatening legal action against those using Peyton’s name without permission, according to CBS4 in Denver.
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 around $280 an ounce.

Representatives for Manning said the marijuana growers and sellers “don’t have his permission for using his name for commercial purposes. If they continue to do so legal action will be taken.”
The Mannings’ marijuana is grown and sold by a company called Good Meds, which offers buyers a 10 percent discount if they wear a Broncos jersey on game day. One of the owners of Good Meds told CBS4 that the strains were named after the quarterback siblings because the seeds are related.
