Harrington talked to Stern about his tenure as commissioner, his handling of the drug's use among players and how his perception has changed.

"I don't think there's been a proper spokesperson for this subject", Stern added.

"I'm now at the point where personally I think it should be removed from the banned list", Stern told Harrington.

He thinks "there's universal agreement that marijuana for medical purposes should be completely legal".

"It was generally known at some point, until we tightened the rules, that a lot of our players were smoking a lot of marijuana", Stern told former National Basketball Association player Al Harrington in "The Concept of Cannabis". "I think we got to change the collective bargaining agreement and let you do what's legal in your state", Stern said.

Stern also spoke out in favor of recreational marijuana use for players who live in states where recreational use is legal.

In August, current National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver told Reddit: "I would say it's something we will look at".

David Stern has come around to a drug he used to campaign hard against. The New York native retired in 2014 and was replaced by current commissioner Adam Silver. The five-game suspension indicates a third positive test for marijuana use, since no other National Basketball Association violations carry a suspension of that length.

Like many players, Harrington began using marijuana use after surgery because he did not like the pain medication that was being offered to him. You know, I was on all kinds of pain meds. "I think it's that big". And, to me, [it's] a more natural way'.

Stern believes it's an issue the players will have to take up with the union first.

Most recently, former Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders was suspended for marijuana use in January of 2015 and was subsequently bought out of his contract by the team.
