NBA players now allowed to smoke weed without being penalized

Apr 3rd 12:24PM

The NBA will no longer test for marijuana, according to a tentative deal between the league and the National Basketball Players Association.

The two sides announced the collective bargaining agreement, which still needs to be ratified before it becomes official, on Saturday morning, according to The Athletic.

If the CBA is ratified by the players and team governors, the seven-year deal would include a stipulation that marijuana will be removed from the drug testing program and NBA players will no longer be penalized for its use, The Athletic reported, citing sources with knowledge of the details of the agreement.

In a statement posted to Twitter, the National Basketball Players Association said: "Specific details will be made available once a term sheet is finalized."
