For those of you who remember the poll that I put on the site a couple weeks back, this post might not be a big surprise. I had asked readers if they thought the State Athletic Commissions should allow fighters to use marijuana if the drug was legalized in the state they were fighting. Out of 24 responses, 17 of you said that fighters should be allowed to be under the influence of THC, the common chemical compound found in the drug. Only seven readers though that marijuana should still be banned even if it is legal in the state where the event is being held.
I’m sure you may already know this – the facts of drug use in MMA are still alarming. You may not know, however, that the California State Athletic Commission has suspended fighters for marijuana use almost 200% more than performance enhancing drugs like anabolic steroids. Even with all of the associated health risks with bringing smoke into human lungs, why are so many fighters smoking marijuana?
There was an article about this a few days ago but I can't find it.
