Snoop Dogg applauds NBA’s new Marijuana policy

Snoop Dogg applauds NBA’s new Marijuana policy

A report last month claimed the NBA will be removing cannabis from its list of banned substances.

The league no longer tests players for the drug as part of a new seven-year collective bargaining agreement.

Snoop — one of the world’s most famous cannabis connoisseurs — recently appeared on ESPN with Stephen A. Smith and Jalen Rose to share his thoughts on the NBA’s landmark rule change.

“I thought about the medical side of it, the health benefits and how it could actually help ease the opioids and all of the pills that they’ve been given and the injections,” he said while recalling his initial reaction to the news.

“I thought about that side and how certain players have been able to have a beautiful life after sports because of the fact that they’ve been able to treat themselves with that. And now that the NBA is being lenient just like the NHL and just like Major League Baseball, it’s all the same thing.”

He added: “As long as it doesn’t enhance your skills to make you play better or give you an advantage, you should be able to treat yourself and heal yourself.”

Snoop Dogg has been a major advocate for professional sports leagues to relax marijuana restrictions to help the recovery of athletes.

“These athletes take these pills and they get addicted to these pills, but it still doesn’t give them the relief that they need,” he told Stephen A. Smith in August 2021 while filling in as a guest host of Jimmy Kimmel Live!

“Through the CBD, THC, marijuana and cannabis, they’re able to find relaxation and get the medical treatment they deserve without the later side effects. Hockey and baseball don’t test for marijuana, so it should be the same for basketball and football.”

Tha Doggfather made another major move in the legal marijuana industry last year by announcing Death Row Records’ own weed brand.

The aptly-titled Death Row Cannabis, which launched in January, is curated by AK, a “West Coast legacy cultivator and industry insider best known for RS11, Studio 54, and Shirazi strains from exotic cannabis breeder DEO.”
