LA Clippers star Blake Griffin believes that marijuana should be allowed to be consumed by NBA players as a way to relax after games.

It's a topic that has created much debate on the US sports scene due to the fact that states Washington and Colorado have now legalised the drug.

Griffin sees the use of weed as a great alternative to painkillers, which can be detrimental to players because of the addictive side-effects they can have.

The Clippers star says that he would vote yes if there was a vote for and against the use of weed in the NBA.

"It doesn’t really affect me, but so many guys would probably benefit from it and not take as many painkillers, which have worse long-term effects," Griffin explained. "So I would vote yes. I just think it makes sense."

Many players have suffered suspensions at the hands of the NBA due to substance abuse, and Griffin isn't the first to speak out in favor of allowing marijuana use.

Larry Sanders is a player that has suffered at the hands of NBA laws, and he thinks the league should legalise the drug amongst players, obviously only within the states that allow it to be costumed.
