If the MMA and Boxing media was asked to undergo random drug testing and face suspension upon positive test results, we’d never bother getting out of bed in the first place. Our mornings would consist of locating the nearest open bag Cheetos and digging through it for breakfast. Our afternoons would be spent contemplating if the Frito-Lay corporation intended for our fingers to get saturated with flavor powder from the Cheetos just so it stains our fingers orange for the rest of the day and makes us want to return to snacking until we wash our hands. Even our evenings would be spent playing video games until we pass out or get evicted from our domiciles. In the meantime, none of us would write articles, conduct interviews, or update our websites and the world of combat sports news would reside in the hands of fans discussing it on twitter. In other words, nothing would change.
The truth of the matter is: Marijuana is not a performance enhancing drug. Even ignorant/unstable boxing promoters like Bob Arum believe that it’s ridiculous to punish fighters for using it medicinally. Even last night’s election voted to pass bills decriminalizing medicinal and recreational uses of everyone’s favorite plant. Never thought I’d live to agree with Bob Arum about anything, but it looks like we’ve found an understanding. I should probably get better weed so this sort of thing never happens again.
