David Stern believes the NBA should give the green light to medical marijuana.
In an interview with Uninterrupted, the former NBA commissioner said he believes the NBA should take marijuana off the league’s list of banned substances.
“I’m now at the point where, personally, I think [MARIJUANA] probably should be removed from the ban list,” Stern said. “I think there is universal agreement that marijuana for medical purposes should be completely legal. “Stern was speaking to former NBA player Al Harrington in the Uninterrupted documentary about the concept of cannabis. Harrington, who is retired, is now a marijuana entrepreneur and he’s the one who produced the documentary. Harrington said “over 70 percent” of athletes in major professional sports smoke marijuana. “Not only the players, but I think coaches consume, I think the owners consume. I think in sports it’s very prevalent and it’s right there,” Harrington said.
