It has and always will be legal to dunk from the free throw line. No one has ever attempted to do so in a non NBA dunk contest, as the odds of doing so with about 7 people in the way is very unlikely. Most people get a head start, as well, and there is little chance of that happening in an NBA game.

Michael Jordan dunked from the free throw line, because everyone else told him it was impossible. This then made MJ more determined to do it, so he could prove everyone else wrong. In 1988, Jordan went against Domonique Wilkins to win the ultimate title of the All-Star Slam Dunk Contest. Both scoring 6 perfect scores, the final tiebreaker saw Wilkins scoring a modest 45 points. Then just before Jordan's turn, he decided to dunk from the free throw line, after having some advice from Dr. J, the man who started it all. As Jordan ran up from the end of the court, he jumped from the free throw line and dunked the ball through the net, getting yet another perfect score and taking home the title of the All-Star Slam Dunk Contest.
