Default NBA Players Smokin' Tweeds.

Do you think the NBA should test players for smoking tweeds? Do you think it is a performance inhancer?

Idk. In some states it's legal now.


I don't believe it enhances performance though but it does affect people differently.

It's still considered a drug so they should continue to test.

Has any player been caught playing drunk before?

FYI, Kareem was a regular marijuana user



From a employer perspective, it's fair to test them.

From a societal perspective, it should have been decriminalized decades ago.

I think you can almost certainly guarantee that our boy Michael Beasley has been high off his ass during a game or two.

For most probably not, but I do think it could enhance performance mentally for some players.

They should be testing for crack lol how does Lamar get away with that for 2 years

No.

I think it is less of a problem now than it was with the last generation of players.

Weed got huge in the mid-late 90s and a huge majority of the players who went through college then were smokers.

I think the young players today are a little more straight.

Not at all, they aren't getting any improvments... actually they hurting themselves professionally speaking (just look at Beasly).

In a league full of PEDs users, NBA can't allow to criminalize smooking weed and especially they cannot start testing random players: what are you gonna do, take a blood sample and test it only for THC?
