Newshawks: Revisiting Rebagliati

With athlete’s of all kinds turning to marijuana for rest and relaxation, and the Olympics taking place, it is little wonder that is Revisiting Rebagliati:

“The addition of snowboarding into the Olympic program was met with suspicion from both sides. Snowboarders raised concerns about maintaining their counterculture roots. The Olympic hosts, on the other hand, viewed the sport warily but hoped that it would boost interest with the younger generation. And then along came Ross Rebagliati, a 26-year-old free spirit who caused more controversy when the IOC threatened to take away his gold medal after he tested positive for cannabis.”
