TMZ: 10 NBA players want marijuana taken off list of banned substances
Marijuana use is becoming a progressively more complicated issue in America following the passing of state legislation to make its sell and use legal. Some states remain firmly against such measures.
The league has maintained its position that marijuana falls under the category of banned substances, with a positive tests resulting in increasing punishments, including suspension.
TMZ says it spoke with 10 NBA players, who said they want the league to remove marijuana from the banned substances list, if a player has a prescription. (Many states allow the sale and use of medical marijuana for various conditions.)
We asked 10 active NBA players (all of whom wanted to remain anonymous) ... and they all made it very clear -- it's time to legalize it!!! One player told us, "How can you tell a guy with a prescription not to use it?? They should be allowed to have their medicine."
Another said ... "The NBA shouldn't advertise for it, but I don't see an issue if a player uses [with a prescription]."
