NEW YORK, NY (WTVB) - The NFL could be prepared to lessen its penalty for use of marijuana and other drugs.  ESPN reports that the league is preparing to finalize a new policy which would increase the threshold for a positive test for pot and reduce punishments for such violations.  The new rules would be in effect too late to help players like Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon, who faces a reported eight-to-16 game suspension for his recent infraction. The renegotiated policy would also include testing for human growth hormone.
