On Friday, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr admitted on The Warriors Insider Podcast with Monte Poole that he tried marijuana twice during the last year and half to try to relieve the chronic back pain he was experiencing after two surgeries.
A day later, the NBA issued the following statement regarding Kerr's revelation:
"All of our coaches are drug tested each season. Marijuana is included on our banned substances list. There are medical exceptions to our policy but, in this case, it's not relevant because Steve said he did not find marijuana to be helpful in relieving his back pain."
