Former NBA commissioner David Stern may have had serious influence on the league for 30 years, but that’s not the case anymore — at least when it comes to marijuana.
In a documentary produced by Uninterrupted, titled “The Concept of Cannabis,” Stern said he believes marijuana “probably should be removed” from the league’s banned substances list.
“We’ve got to change the collective bargaining agreement and let you do what’s legal in your state,” he said. “I think it’s up to the sports leagues to anticipate where this is going and maybe lead the way.”
The the league, which Stern oversaw from 1984 until 2014, doesn’t sound open to his suggestion.
