According to ESPN's Adam Schefter:

The suspension is currently being appealed. Early speculation is that it could be marijuana related, again this is just suspicion, a drug offense is not confirmed.

Marijuana possession/consumption is not a punishable in the state of Colorado, but under NFL rules consumption is a punishable offense no matter what state the player lives in.

If Von Miller's suspension is held up, his first game will be October 6th at the Dallas Cowboys.

We will have more on this as more becomes apparent.

UPDATE (10:00 AM MTN):

Apparently it is not just marijuana:

And that other substance? It looks like it may be the drug known as molly according to Denver's 104.3 Broncos' insider Brandon Krisztal. We have more on the possible molly claim here.
