With cannabis use an open secret in the NBA, this ex-player is pushing the league to allow CBD

Al Harrington saw this day coming for years.

As the former NBA forward strolled through Las Vegas’s MJBizCon, the largest convention for the cannabis trade in the United States, a friend texted him with the news that Major League Baseball will no longer test for marijuana in the minor leagues, a response to opioid use among professional athletes. It was a pivotal turning point for advocates such as Harrington, who believe cannabis is a healthier medicinal option.
