World Anti-Doping Agency/State Athletic Commissions: Remove Marijuana From Banned Substance List

Because the fact that a fighter can get suspended for smoking cannabis is not right. It has no proven performance enhancing effects and very little, if any, negative effects. It is one thing to not allow fighting while under the influence, but you should not be able to get in trouble from just having traces of it left in your system.

      Marijuana does not enhance performance or grant any physical or competitive edge. It also causes no harm to the user. If tobacco and alcohol are legal substances, there is no reason marijuana should be banned.

      It is absolutely ridiculous that this is even on the banned substance list to begin with, especially considering how severe the punishment. It is not a PED and it should be removed from the list now.
