    Found this list of players who've been busted for Chronic...
    And while this list is a few years old it seems, besides Beasley, Chalmers and Arthur at Rookie Camp, I can't think of anyone else recently whos been punished by the league. I think its a fair bet to guess that the League has given up...?

    Josh Howard
    This was a breath of fresh air (no pun intended). On April 25, 2008 before game 3 of his team’s matchup with New Orleans in the playoffs, Howard publicly admitted to using marijuana during the NBA offseason. Howard said marijuana use is not uncommon among NBA players. Though he did not mention names, Howard said: “I think that everybody in the media world and in the sports world knows that NBA players do smoke marijuana.” I would bet there have been some late meetings in Cuban’s office. What else could calm that guy down.

    Brad Miller
    On July 10, 2008, Miller was suspended by the NBA for 5 games at the beginning of the 2008-2009 season for violations of the league’s substance abuse policy It was reported that he tested positive for marijuana for a third time. Nice work Bradley.

    Joakim Noah
    This is one of the best. On May 25, 2008 in Gainesville, Florida, Noah was arrested for having an open container of alcohol and misdemeanor possession of marijuana. A few hours later, Noah was also cited for driving with a suspended license and not wearing a seat belt. He was sentenced to six months probation and a $200 fine for the marijuana and open container charges.

    Damon Stoudamire
    His stint with the Portland Trail Blazers was marred by several marijuana related incidents including one during the 2002-03 season where his yellow Hummer was pulled over on I-5 for speeding and driving under the influence of marijuana. In July 2003, after his third arrest for marijuana possession, he was fined $250,000 and was suspended by the team for three months. Sounds like Damon knew where all the hook ups were.

    David Harrison
    On January 11, 2008, Harrison received a five-game suspension for violating the league’s anti-drug policy. The Indianapolis Star reported that Harrison was sorry for the way the suspension made the team look bad. Harrison reportedly stated that he didn’t feel that the NBA should be able to look into his off the court behavior except in the case of performance-enhancing drugs.

    Sean Williams
    Okay so he never got busted while in the NBA but if he sold it in college, you have to expect he still dabbles now and then. Williams was arrested in 2005 for marijuana possession and then kicked off the Boston College squad for repeated team rules violations.

    As for TMac... the guy has looked stoned since he was drafted ... but I did find this...
    A special report has surfaced the past few days revolving around the once superstar Tracy McGrady, also known as "T-Mac". The sources remain confidential it appears, but enough has gotten around that I was able to pick up a few things.

    Tracy McGrady is apparently not injured......and never has been. These "lingering issues" that have hampered his career the past few years are simple lies the man uses to get away with whatever he wants. He's the type of guy that enjoys his free-time, so he figures he deserves some vacation time every few weeks. His diagnosed "arthritis and tendinitis of the knee", or so he claims, is pretty obviously a false symptom he is claiming so he can receive prescriptions of medical marijuana.

    It's believed that McGrady started smoking the medical grade weed around November of 2008, so it's no coincidence that his play has been more relaxed and less effective overall. T-Mac was asked about these recent claims that have surfaced and his only remark: "Uh, you know, well, uh....haha, yea, Josh Howard told me about his doctor so I went and saw him."

    At least he admits it...but it appears the NBA media has kept this on the down-low hoping it never gets around. Stern and others are still under the impression marijuana is as harmful as methamphetamines or heroin, and just as addicting. As a result they try to avoid any claims of players smoking some grass, specifically when it comes to the stars that sell jerseys and essentially make Stern a rich man.

    A lot of players smoke. I don't imagine any of them are getting high before games.

    Lots of athletes drink coffee (caffeine) specifically to help performance. And what about those energy drinks with guarana stimulants (e.g. Red Bull). How come those substances aren't considered PEDs when they are non-natural substances specifically taken by athletes before events with full intention of enhancing performance?

    thats an assumption. you coulda took athletes from the special olympics, would you get those expected results?

    i just think there is a valid point to weed as a potential PED. different bodies, different results. some people are dependent on it to actually be productive in their day
    Yes you would get expected results. I guarantee there are tests that show that marijuana adversely affects the majority of people.

    As for your second point you say the magic word yourself, dependent. Dependency doesn't make something a PED, in fact the exact opposite. Heroin addicts cannot function without heroin, heroin is not a PED.

    Drugs are bad. Even the over-the-counter ones. There's no two ways about it.
    Not that it's really "over-the-counter", but many prescribed drugs are both worse narcotics, and have worse societal effects than weed.....think Oxycodone.

    It all depends on the person. Some people can smoke it, some people can't.

    Different strokes for different folks.

    Not really.

    Laws/rules are based on the average.

    If 100 athletes take HGH, 99 of them (probably 100) will become better
    if 100 athletes smoke weed only a handful may see a performance boost, the greater majority would see a decrease in performance. Therefore it is not performance enhancing.

    Skittles can make Marshawn Lynch run over your ass but if it doesn't work for a larger group than it's not performance enhancing, at best it's a weird chemical reaction for that person and most likely it's just a placebo.


    Edit: The "Not really" comment was in reply to Nilanka.
