Sha'Carri Richardson is a track and field sprinter who is currently the fastest woman alive. Richardson is preparing to participate in her first Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. Unfortunately, on July 1st, 2021, Richardson tested positive for marijuana. As a result, The World Anti-Doping Agency could suspend her for 30 days. Recreational marijuana is legal in 19 states, including Oregon, where Richardson competed in the U.S. Olympic team trials and reportedly failed the drug test. Additionally, cannabis is not a performance-enhancing drug and could put a runner at more of a disadvantage during a race. Sha'Carri Richardson should not be barred from realizing her dream of competing in the 2021 Olympic Games. She did not gain any competitive advantage from the reported use of marijuana. Richardson and athletes everywhere should not be banned from competition for the use of a widely legalized drug. Please sign this petition to help Richardson fight to be allowed to compete in the Olympic games.
