They should definitely receive the state athletic commission's punishment, and any punishment the UFC deems fit above and beyond. I'm not against the reefer, but the media's eye is returning to MMA, and now is not the time for the athletes to be testing positive for any banned substance, from Benadryl to steroids to heroin.
Now, if a fighter can smoke intelligently (i.e. smokes, but has it out of their system before fight night), then that's their business.
