Mitch McGary of Michigan revealed today that recently failed a drug test for cannabis, but it likely won’t affect his draft status.

According MLive, one NBA Eastern Conference scout speaking anonymously stated that McGary’s failed drug test for marijuana use is unlikely to impact the sophomore’s NBA stock.

“No, not really, because you know what, probably 70 percent of the league does that,” the scout is quoted a stating, referring to the large number of NBA players who currently consume cannabis.

McGary admitted to the failed drug test and an accompanying year-long suspension by the NCAA along in Friday’s announcement that he’s entering the 2014 draft.

“It’s not like he’s a kid with a bad attitude,” the scout said. “If it was a kid that was a malcontent and changed schools a lot, then it would be another (issue), but I don’t think this is that big of a deal.”

With demonstrated medicinal qualities and given its track record of helping athletes recover from strenuous activity, cannabis has proven to be a far better choice than alcohol.

McGary is projected to go late in the first round.
