There's been a back and forth about whether weed should be taken off the NBA's banned substance list. Retired player Stephen Jackson thinks it should be.

While speaking to TMZ, the 39-year-old said he smoked a lot of weed but he doesn't think it affected him or his play. He added that NBA won't remove it from the list until they're able to create a bunch of regulations.

"'Cause they can't control it," said Jackson. "They won't let it be legal until they can control it. I smoked my whole career, had a hell of a career.  I didn't miss no games."

He pointed out that weed is good for post-game relaxation, but it shouldn't be used before games.

"I ain't gonna say it helped, but as far as coming down after the game relaxing [it did,]" explained the former Los Angeles Clipper. "Before the games? Nobody can play high, especially in the NBA. It's a high level of competition and guys are great, so nobody can play high. But after the game guys need to come down and relax, 'cause it's a physical sport."

What are your thoughts on this? Plus, are you able to play a sport after burning one down?
