Chauncy Billips talks about medical Cannabis use, or lack thereof in the NBA

Cannabis use has been a buzzing topic in the NBA. Coach of the year and Warrior's head coach Steve Kerr recently discussed his personal experience with medical Cannabis and back pain. Recently on ESPN's "NBA Countdown" retired basketball player Chauncy Billups commented,

"For medicinal use, I think we absolutely need to have that conversation. The Players Association, they need to talk about that with the NBA, because there’s a lot of science behind it… because we’ve been through a ton of injuries. I’ve seen a piece on Jason Williams, who was the No. 2 pick in the draft, that talked about him being addicted to oxycontin and pain pills, and it would have been much better and much easier thing to have marijuana as a relief."
