Bucks’ Larry Sanders After Drug Suspension: ‘I Believe In Marijuana’

WISCONSIN:  Hours after the NBA suspended Larry Sanders for five games after he failed multiple drug tests, the Bucks center told reporters that he believes in marijuana’s medicinal capabilities.

The Journal-Sentinel reports that Sanders addressed the drug in detail prior to Milwaukee’s road game against Chicago.

“It’s something I feel strongly about, just to let you know something personal about me,” Sanders said in an interview with the Journal Sentinel and nba.com. “I will deal with the consequences from it. It’s a banned substance in my league. But I believe in marijuana and the medical side of it. I know what it is if I’m going to use it.”
