With the 2021-22 season now just weeks away, the league has agreed once again to suspend random cannabis testing.

When 22 of the league’s 30 teams arrived in Florida last July to resume play in the Disney bubble, the league announced it had come to an agreement with the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) and would cease testing players for recreational drugs, including cannabis.
