Because it's classified as an illegal drug.
I doubt the UFC or Dana would ever be on board with a proposal like that because it would be horrible for PR.

I know, but still. In the majority of the United States and as defined by the commission, it's illegal.
I'm not saying I agree with it, far from it, but allowing fighters a leeway time to detox would be really bad for PR.

It is a stupid rule, especially when you consider it was legal where Healy trains (Oregon), where he fought (New Jersey) and where the UFC is home office is (Nevada). If a fighter has a license to smoke MMA should respect it.

On one hand it's nonsense, there's nothing wrong with smoking some weed. On the other hand he knew the rules and is a complete dumbass for doing it and I don't feel sorry for him, you do stupid things and bad things happen.
