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.

The pot rule might be pretty stupid, but seriously, Thiago Silva is a moron. His last legitimate win came in 2009, against Jardine, and since then he's looked distinctly unimpressive, been handled by Rashad and Gustaf, and has wins but poor performances against Nedkov and Vera, he's done. Feed him to the loser of Shogun-Glover or maybe Mousasi, let him get mauled and send him on his way.

This is complete BS...the tests the athletic comissions do arent even accurate, they simply detect if the person smoked pot but from a urine sample you cant get an exact date, shit he could have smoked a joint almost a month before the fight and it could show up...thats ridiculous

I think until they can determine a better timeline of when someone smoked (like narrow it down to a few days) then these tests dont matter at all

It's just metabolites again for ****s sake.

6 months RETROACTIVE? Who cares?? He's still training with the same guys in the meantime. Do any of you know what a metabolite is?

It's not like he was high near fight night. He was using it for training like most fighters do, and in my opinion it's well worth the risk.

There are just so many fighters these days.. if no one announced this no one would have noticed in the first place!

Point is he shouldn't have been doing it at all. If he is stupid enough to smoke weed, whether it be a month or not, knowing the athletic commission will test him for it then he deserves to get his dumb ass suspended.

Does his victory get overturned to a NC? I sure hope not.

I don't think we are saying it was a PED or anything. But if its a known rule, it still make him an idiot for breaking it.
