NBA Stars Endorse Cannabis - Steve Kerr (Golden State Warriors) Confirms Medical Marijuana As Pain Treatment.

One of the most talented players in the NBA, and currently a successful coach, publicly reveals for the first time that “illegal” cannabis is used to aid players. The use of cannabis in major American sports leagues (basketball, football, hockey and baseball) is not uncommon at all. No one has caught up with Steve Kerr's comments, neither the NBA nor the players, in admitting that these sports stars enjoy some impunity regarding marijuana, if it is only for recreation or as regards the new one, in the case of treatment for (back) pain.

A recent press release from one of the biggest stars of all time, Kevin Durant (Golden State Warriors), tells us that the NBA world is in full agreement with the comments made by Steve Kerr, their coach and former NBA star:

"I'm not an expert on it, but I do know one thing: if you're an American football player and have severe pain, I don't think you can argue that weed is better. for your body than Vicodin, ”he told CSN Bay Area on Friday. "In all sports, Vicodin is prescribed, as if it were vitamin C, as if it was something normal"

His comments are deemed "quite reasonable" especially when it comes to marijuana being preferable to pain relievers like Vicodin and Toradol (opioids).

"Vicodin is not a good thing, it is much worse than weed, especially if you are looking for a pain reliever and if we are talking about medical marijuana," he said.

Steve Kerr takes a stand and indicates that marijuana relieves the pains of athletes, and hopes that the big leagues will follow his example, and change their regulations in this area. Steve Kerr, himself was one of the most decorated NBA players (five championships with the Chicago Bulls), and he enjoys the consumption of cannabis, even if considered "illegal" especially in his time.

"I think it's not going to take long for the NBA, NFL and MLB to realize this," the coach stressed - "I hope there will be more lenient laws on marijuana, although I am not in favor of drugs ”, he concluded.

Steve had back surgery twice in the summer of 2015 and used marijuana to relieve terrible back pain, and sometimes "unsuccessfully"; one of these operations went very badly... However, despite a certain impunity, he believes in a radio interview that he could be in trouble.

“I don't know if I have to undergo drug testing or doping law by the NBA coaches,” he said, “but it was worth it, because I have to respond against my pain. I also tried aspirin, but it was much worse "...

Following the release of Steve Kerr's remarks about medical marijuana use, Draymond Green emphasized the natural look of the plant, a comparison that social networks quickly derided. "All the vegetables that come from the earth, we encourage you to consume them"
