Pat Healy, Dave Herman and Nick Diaz can't smoke weed, but Fallon Fox can fight women. Interesting.

Still though, regardless the opinion of marijuana, it's still illegal. I'll never understand why some people just don't have some self control. It's just weed for crying out loud. I like to drink whiskey a lot but if my children are around or if it's going to affect something important in my life, you bet your ass I'll put the bottle down.

Nothing really to add. It's a very stupid and archaic rule. But it's a rule nonetheless.

It really isn't that difficult to not smoke a joint (especially if socially).

To get the regular questions out of the marijuana is not a PED....yes it is his fault since he signed up and knew the rules.

But to get at the "can't get out of his own way" comment...while I agree and have seen those people a lot, as for Pat, he is one of a great % of fighters who smoke in their offseason. I bet people would be shocked at the amount of fighters who toke up after a fight. Perhaps not daily smoke right up until you NEED to detox to pass the test. But I bet a lot of elite fighters do smoke pot. Many just have better restraint and don't smoke leading up to a fight. Probably many times after fights or in their week off from the gym. But where there is that much at stake (your biggest payday by a multiple of 10) you have to restrain yourself from relying on a close detox time.

These guys are fighters who live in the gym. They have minimal fat. They can go a month with smoking and quit 10 days before the test. Why not just give it that extra week just to be sure?

There's no reason Dana couldn't just give him the bonus anyway and not tell the press. He can do almost anything he wants in terms of post-fight bonuses.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?
