Former University of Tennessee and current Denver Bronco Peyton Manning has made a nice foray into the entertainment world with commercials and a well-received gig on Saturday Night Live, but the latest product to bear his name is not likely one he would endorse.

Peyton Manning marijuana has hit the shelves in Colorado, which legalized the drug's use in last November's election, according to Denver radio show host Peter Burns.

Colorado finalized its laws permitting recreational marijuana use on Monday, and by Thursday night Burns posted a photo of a baggie of the weed on his twitter page, showing a label with Manning's name, image, and a promise of an "Uplifting, Happy, Euphoric" experience.

It's been well over a decade, but that's some bud now boyz. No need to partake anymore, just looking at that picture tells me some people in Colorado aren't going to have real good depth perception. Doubt that it is officially endorsed by the big man, but could well end up increasing his pizza sales. Don't you know you've made it when they name world class herb after you. Move over Elvis.

I would imagine they will be hearing from Peyton's attorney. Also more than likely from the NFL, I'm sure they aren't happy with it.

Guess they were just trying to make a big splash in a big new market before the process-servers arrived. Can't imagine they didn't know it would happen at some point. Even harder to imagine that Peyton actually signed off on it--"Say it ain't so, Peyton!"
