Weed is a 5 game suspension if you fail 3 times iirc. 2yrs ban is something like what Birdman got. Meth, Xanax, coke, etc.

He shouldn't have been rookie of the year, but it's a little sad that his overall play fell off from his rookie year. A lot of players fail because they get stuck on bad teams and it messes them up for their whole career.

I hope he gets good.

But you can pop dangerous pills or drink alcohol, both of which are much more dangerous than weed as both can kill you, you could smoke a whole pound of weed and not die.

Weed is illegal because of racist reasons and an agenda to help out big pharm.

Tylenol and these other pain relief pills that are more dangerous than weed would have never made so much money if people could grow their own medicine.

An employer cannot dictate something like "no leather car seats". Beats by Dre are through a partnership program which the league is sponsored by Beats, which means it's in the player conduct code.

What you are saying is akin to your employer having a rule that your car must be white to park in the lot or you are fired. As opposed to you must wear slip grips brand non-slip shoes.

your anger should be at the fact that in 2019 people are still going to ****ing jail for smoking weed.

you should literally be ****ing outraged by that.

it is completely unreasonable for weed to still have this ******** stigma to this day.

the negative effects of weed are almost non existant, meanwhile the number of health issues it helps is damn near countless.

oh, and you can't OD on it, and it isnt addictive.

meanwhile, someone can get wasted drunk every night and no one bats a goddamn eye despite alcohol being hundreds of times worse than weed has ever been.

dont follow ******** laws and rules just because they exist

I'm going to bring up Ricky William's again.

the man has severe social anxiety to the point he wore helmets or sunglasses to do interviews because his anxiety was so severe he couldnt look at people. the thing that helped him best was, guess what? WEED. but this was the early 2000s and the stigma against weed was even worse and he was constantly in trouble for smoking weed to help with his SEVERE ANXIETY. that is ****ing ********.

oh, and let's not talk about all the people who get prescribed hard narcotics for various issues and often get addicted and have their lives ruined when weed would have been perfectly fine for them.

but **** that, we have a ******** drug campaign to keep against weed...not narcotics that can cause addiction and overdoses

Drug testing is fine for actual drugs, weed is not a drug that should stand beside cocaine, heroin, or even percocet.

Weed is less dangerous than alcohol or cigarettes. They are having trouble even finding negative effects from using weed and it is prescribed as medication with way less side effects than those pills they cook up in the lab.

But they still suspend people from games for smoking weed though right? And LOL at abusing painkillers probably after he became dependant on them after they were prescribed to him and his prescription ran out.

From a live science article:

"You can die binge-drinking five minutes after you've been exposed to alcohol. That isn't going to happen with marijuana," said Ruben Baler, a health scientist at the National Institute on Drug Abuse. "The impact of marijuana use is much subtler."

Because marijuana can impair coordination and balance, there is the risk of hurting oneself, particularly if someone drives or chooses to have unprotected sex while their inhibitions are lowered, Baler said. These are two areas where people using marijuana could hurt themselves for the short and long term.

So once again why are we testing for this? LOL drug free workplace but you can buy something that can kill you almost instantly or kill other people if you decide to drive drunk over the counter at almost any store in the country, yet weed is such a terrible thing people are thrown in jail or lose their jobs over it. Just dumb.

They do but here's their bylaws on it:

NBA
First infraction: mandatory completion of substance abuse program
Second infraction: $25,000 fine, no suspension
Third infraction: 5-game suspension
Fourth infraction: 10-game suspension (5 more games for each positive test thereafter)

And Adam Silver already said that the NBA is looking to loosen the pot policies in the next CBA to reflect the fact the recreational use is legal in some states, but they will keep something in place as long as any state considers it illegal. The NBA, while having a low threshold, also only tests 1 month a year and it's the same month every year. And on top of that the players get notified of what date the test is on. Usually it happens during training camp. So guess what? The NBA has it really easy with this. Quit in early August and you'll always pass.

So its ok because you can quit and suffer thru pain or find something else for the pain that is more dangerous until you can smoke again. Weed should not be illegal in any states, its old racist laws and the NBA chooses to enforce it.

I don't really have a position. Nor do I ever have a point. You should already know this about me, so this time shame on you :)

Just making the point that I don't agree with the logic that if the league says don't do it and someone does it, they just deserve what they get, period. Sometimes some restrictions are kind of stupid, and I wouldn't necessarily always support the league taking action against them just for breaking a rule. Some rules are dumb.

So we should have rules but no consequences for breaking them? Iím sorry thatís silly.

And I donít see whatís so dumb about punishing someone for doing something that illegal in the first place. Like I said, the alternative is getting caught with it and going to jail. Evans at least has the choice of going to China and playing right now.
