League policies: NBA: Marijuana remains banned, but the relaxed testing protocol brings the league closer to its Big Four counterparts. If a player has “abnormally high levels” of THC, this is treated as a health problem (as would alcoholism).

The threshold for a positive test was also raised and the suspensions were replaced by fines.
