David Stern, who was the commissioner of the NBA from 1984 to 2014, believes that the NBA should loosen its stance on marijuana use. In an Uninterrupted documentary, Stern sat down with former NBA player Al Harrington to discuss the topic.
“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, 75, says that the perception of marijuana has changed, and he believes that the NBA’s Collective Bargaining agreement should be altered to allow players to use marijuana if it is legal in their state.
