    Major League Baseball will start testing for opioids and cocaine, but marijuana is to be removed from the list of drugs of abuse

    Major League Baseball will start testing for opioids and cocaine, but marijuana is to be removed from the list of drugs of abuse


    Opioids are classified as a drug of abuse under the joint major league programme, which began in late 2002 and until now has limited testing to performance-enhancing substances and banned stimulants.

    Only players who do not cooperate with their treatment plans will be subject to discipline under the new system.
