Peyton Manning's Pizza Business Is Booming Thanks to Pot

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has the state of Colorado and its pro-weed policy to thank this year. As he mentioned in a recent Sports Illustrated interview, the football star's Papa John's Pizza franchises — he owns 21 units — are doing especially well thanks, at least in part, to people with the munchies.

While discussing the laws in Colorado and voting in his home state, he dropped this gem: "There's some different laws out here in Colorado. Pizza business is pretty good out here, believe it or not, due to some recent law changes." Perhaps Papa John's will complete the circle and start selling pizza laced with marijuana.
