NBA Should Follow MLB’s Lead on Cannabis Use Says Al Harrington
Al Harrington, a former NBA star, says that all his best NBA teammates smoked weed, and the NBA should trust players to decide if they want to consume cannabis. The GrowthOp reports that Harrington says players know better than to show up to a game high but should be able to make the choice to use marijuana on their own time.
Major League Baseball recently made the move to remove cannabis from their banned substances list, and Harrington thinks the NBA should do the same, according to the article. Harrington says that he has experienced the post-game therapeutic benefits of cannabis firsthand. He’s quoted in the post as saying, “After the game, I’m going to blow it down; I’m going to relax, play video games and heal.”
