John Lucas read the comments and understands the arguments but disagrees that illegal drugs, mainly marijuana, should be used for medicinal purposes. A debate began last week after Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr told CSN Bay Area that he has tried marijuana for chronic back pain. Kerr said he didn’t like it, but offered that maybe sports leagues should allow players to use marijuana for medicinal purposes to treat pain.

“It’s easy to tell if you have an addiction,” Lucas told ESPN. “If you can’t change your behavior to reach your goals, but you change your goals to meet your behavior, then it’s a real problem. So, Steve knew he had a back issue, and he changed his goal to do something illegal. See the violation? So, you run the risk of getting arrested. Well, you say, ‘I was worried about my back.’ Well, if I told you this was going to produce an intoxication, would you do it? No — there’s the answer.”
