    Should the league remove MJ from the banned substance list?

    Larry Sanders has been suspended 5 games for smoking MJ.

    Chris Webber has been suspended for it in the past.

    If memory serves me right, Robert Parish was also suspended.

    And the list is much longer than that.

    Considering that marijuana has been legalized in two states and that medical use is legal in a great many others, isn't it time that the NBA remove this from the banned substance policy?

    This would be like suspending a player for drinking or smoking a cigar.
    Why did the chicken cross the basketball court?
    Because he heard the refs were blowing fowls.

    Marijuana is awesome and should be legalized everywhere with the age of legality being 21 and same stipulations as alcohol and driving

    As long as they don't use it before or somehow during a game, I don't see the problem. It just shouldn't have an effect on their performance

    of course it should be legalized. And in reality, its only a matter of time before it is.

    That being said, not every business will allow it.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    The Nevada Gaming Comission just banned the use of TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy) even though it is completely legal and prescribed by doctors to UFC fighters. While not exactly recreational, TRT is considered a quality of life treatment and not a performance enhancer, per se. So there is a precedent for banning substances that are not PEDs.

    And there is the legality issue. In 48 states it is still a crime, and federally it is still a crime. By removing the penalty for it they would in essence be condoning their players to break federal law. And considering how much players fly, and the fact that airports are federally controlled (and thus MJ is banned in all airports, even in Colorado), the NBA would only be asking for trouble.

    Of course not. Especially not until it's legal nationwide. Until then, I don't think it should be even questioned.

Similar situation happening with Kevin Love, the team has to surround him with foreigners and whites because black players won't succumb to the greatness that is Kevin Love.

    i dunno how much it would.

    most of the league smokes,i'm sure that all the higher ups know that(you'd have to be extremely niave to not),the nba audience are largely same base of people who want legalization ....really the only backlash would come from the traditional media and people who dont watch anyways
