Pot Smoking Athlete’s Comments Cause Controversy

CANNABIS CULTURE – An athlete who recently came out of the (hot-boxed) closet about his marijuana use is causing a controversy in the world of mixed-martial arts.

Earlier this month, MMA Fighter Nick Diaz told the Los Angeles Times that marijuana was ‘part of his plan’ as an athlete.

“I’m more consistent about everything being a cannabis user,” Diaz explained to the paper. “I’m happy to get loaded, hear some good music . . . I remain consistent. And I have an easy way to deal with [the drug tests].

“I can pass a drug test in eight days with herbal cleansers. I drink 10 pounds of water and sweat out 10 pounds of water every day. I’ll be fine.”

Diaz said he was diagnosed with attention deficit disorder as a child, and uses the plant instead of doctor-prescribed medication.

The fighters flippant remarks about the banned substance instantly sparked controversy in the days before his Strikeforce fight at San Jose’s HP Pavilion. Diaz’s opponent in the April 11 match, Frank Shamrock, was asked about the LA Times comments by CagePotato.com.

“Well, I certainly don’t agree with it,” he said laughing. “I guess if he passes the test, those are the rules.  But I certainly don’t agree with his lifestyle and his marketing of that lifestyle as a part of mixed martial arts, because I don’t think that’s a part of the sport.  I think he’s somewhat of a freak in that way.”

Diaz has a history with cannabis, testing positive in more than one state athletic commission test. In Las Vegas in 2007, Diaz’s pot use cost him his win over Japan’s Takanori Gomi and he was suspended for six months from the UFC. He again tested positive in his first post-UFC fight.

But it looks like Diaz’s drug-cleansing claims to the LA Times were correct. After winning his April 11 fight with Shamrock in a second-round TKO, Diaz passed his drug test. William Douglas, the assistant executive officer of the California State Athletic Commission, told the LA Times that he had “read every word” of Diaz’s comments about marijuana, but was forced to give him a pass when the test came back clean. This solidifies Diaz’s win and paves the way for his next Strikeforce fight.

Recently, Olympic super-althelete Michael Phelps was caught up in a smokey controvery when someone photographed him puffing from a bong at a party.

WWE wrestling star Rob Van Dam has written extensively about his use of cannabis as an athletic enhancer.

“I believe cannabis improves performance in athletic and contact sports (such as wrestling, power-lifting, football), co-ordination sports (snowboarding, surfing, basketball), and finesse sports (golf, bowling) by providing a relaxed state of mind and agile body,” he wrote in a 2008 Cannabis Culture Magazine article.

    A few people I know, including myself, have tried to drink a lot of water to pass a drug test. We have found that many times the results of the test say, “The sample was tampered with” because they say, “It was too diluted like it would look if someone added water to it.” How the fuck can you add water to your piss when you have an asshole watching the piss coming out of your dick and go into the cup!! These government dickheads are retarded.

    You can get a false positive if you eat poppy seed bagels before your drug test so who knows what else can do it?

    I wonder if frank shamrock watches the ultimate fighter show and thinks alcohol is part of the sportÉ They sure give them access to all the alcohol they can drink and look what happens.

    I was on federal supervised release in the U.S. for 4 years for an indoor grow.
    The punk I had to report to was a total dickless tool. I smoked pot every day I was on supervised release and passed every piss test and all I did was drink a 2 gallons of water a day. Main thing it is good for you. Keeps you ready for the unannounced piss test. What the fuck are these assholes going to do? Bust you for drinking water? Fuck them, they are the enemy and they deserve our telling them to fucK off and die because they are not what America is supposed to be about. Drink lots of water and smile at them. They are scum !
