The International Olympics Committee (IOC) should stop testing their athletes for cannabis. After Sha’carri Richardson tested positive for THC, the active chemical found in weed, she is facing a 30 day ban from the olympics shortly after becoming the fastest woman in the world. Athletes like Sha’carri and Michael Phelps should not be penalized for consuming cannabis, especially because Richardson consumed it in a legal state after the death of her mother. If the IOC stops testing athletes for cannabis, it would be a great stride in the race for legalization. Cannabis has not even been found to be a performance enhancing drug, so there is no reason for an athlete to be banned for using it. Other major sports leagues, such as the NBA, have already stated they will stop testing their athletes for weed. Sign this petition to let the IOC know to stop testing their athletes for cannabis and to reinstate Sha’Carri Richardson in the 2021 Olympics.
