It was at least 10 years when that Canadian snowboarder tested positive for metabolites and was almost stripped of his gold medal. Thankfully they made the right decision and let him keep it; they recognized that smoking pot on friday night has nothing to do with training monday morning. Can't believe people are still being punished so harshly for using one of the safest recreational drugs known to man.
Whilst I agree suspending people for pot is a bit rediculous, it is a rule, and fighters know that.

If they test positive for it they only have themselves to blame.
