NBA Will Not Test Players for Marijuana in 2020-21 Season

Suspensions for marijuana use in the NBA are about to go up in smoke. 

The NBA will reportedly not test players for marijuana use in the upcoming NBA campaign, according to Ben Dowsett. This is the same policy the league used in the bubble in Orlando. 

With marijuana becoming widely legalized across the country, it's no surprise that the NBA — arguably the most progressive of the major sports leagues — took this step to stop suspensions over the recreational drug. 

NBA Twitter, of course, had a field day with the burning hot news as J.R. Smith was trending on the social media site. 

The question now becomes, will other leagues follow the NBA's footsteps?
