NBA Will Not Test Players for Marijuana Use During 2021-22 Season

Similar to last season, the NBA will continue to not randomly test players for marijuana use this coming season.

The use of medicinal marijuana has long been a polarizing topic across sports and since the Orlando restart back in 2020, the NBA has decided to adjust its marijuana policy, allowing players to use it as they sit fit in-season.

That being said, the league will continue to test for “drugs of abuse and performance enhancing substances.” Those substances will include any forms of steroids and stimulants deemed illegal by the league. Toronto Raptors guard Jalen Harris and Phoenix Suns center DeAndre Ayton are two of the more recent suspensions related to the use of performance enhancing substances.

 

“We have agreed with the NBPA to extend the suspension of random testing for marijuana for the 2021-22 season and focus our random testing program on performance-enhancing products and drugs of abuse,” said Mike Bass.

The MLB and NFL are two other sports leagues that have recently removed marijuana from its illegal substance list.
