(Undated) -- The majority of NFL players agree with President Obama that marijuana is no more dangerous than alcohol. Seventy-five percent of players responding to an ESPN.com NFL Nation survey said they agree with Obama's statement, which he made to "The New Yorker" in January. NFL players who test positive for marijuana are entered into the league's drug program, with repeat offenders facing suspension. An appeal of a year-long suspension for Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was denied Wednesday after he violated the league's drug policy for a third time. He blamed a positive test for marijuana on second-hand smoke. The NFL says any change in its drug policy would have to be negotiated in the collective bargaining agreement.
