Oliver Luck would “prefer not to test for marijuana.”

The XFL may be taking a completely different approach then the NFL in many ways, but this may be one of the biggest differences between the league.

Via SI.com, XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck would “prefer not to test for marijuana.”

This would make marijuana use a non-issue for the XFL, except where a player isn’t able to play football because he’s incarcerated for marijuana use — something that rarely happens in 2019.

Luck said that he hasn’t considered whether that would make players like receiver Josh Gordon eligible for the XFL. If the XFL won’t be policing the private lives of players when it comes to non-PEDs that the players may use when on their own time, why would they bar a player who has been banned by the NFL for behavior that the XFL doesn’t prohibit?
