Basketball star Kevin Durant says everybody does cannabis in the NBA
Basketball star Kevin Durant says everybody does cannabis in the NBA as he lobbies to end the league’s ban on the drug.
Speaking in an interview the 34-year-old added that the drug is so commonly used in the league “it’s like wine at this point”.
NBA players are no longer prohibited from using cannabis.
The league and its union, the National Basketball Players Association, signed a new collective bargaining agreement last month that removes the drug from its list of banned substances.
Players have not been subject to random tests for cannabis since the 2019-20 season.
Other US sports leagues, including Major League Baseball, the national football league and Ultimate Fighting Championship, have all relaxed their cannabis policies in recent years.
