Jay Williams Says 75-80 Percent of NBA Players Smoke Marijuana

This is something that has been said by many NBA players in the past, and it looks like former Chicago Bulls and Duke star Jay Williams has joined the list.

The current ESPN analyst told Fox Business that at least 75-80 percent of players smoke marijuana, and the NBA should stop testing players for it. He says most players use it for medicinal purposes, and that they should only be fined or suspended if they test positive for it. 

“I know so many athletes that play on Percocet,” he said. “Have you ever taken Percocet by the way? It makes you way more groggy than rubbing cannabis oil into your skin. It’s demonized in society, too. Oh, he’s a pot head. No, I actually use cannabis oil because it helps with inflammation and takes away from anxiety.”

Williams has previously spoken about players smoking weed, such as when he found out about it when making the transition from college to the NBA.

“Guys were on the bench, trying to kick it to girls in the stands, having ball boys run over. I mean, some guys were high,” he said. “There were guys smoking weed before games. Guys asking in the middle of the game, ‘Do you smell popcorn?’”

The NBA has always been a progressive league, so I can definitely see them moving towards the direction of letting players smoke weed.
