April 4, 2023 from leafie

Professional basketball players in America’s NBA will no longer be subject to any further tests for cannabis use, and cannabis will be dropped completely from the NBA’s anti-drug testing programme, according to a report in The Athletic.

The news was part of a package negotiated by the players’ union The National Basketball Players’ Association (NBPA), and NBA officials. The deal is expected to come into effect this summer, and last for at least five years.
