    Default Nick Diaz suspended 5 years for Marijuana use...

    Pretty ridiculous... Anderson Silva is suspended for a year for his second failed anabolic steroid test, and Nick Diaz gets a 5 year ban for testing positive for marijuana use by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Personally, I am not a fan of Nick Diaz, but this is absurd. It might as well be a lifetime ban for the 32 year old. He was also fined $165,000 dollars.

    Any truth to the rumour that Roger Goodell is on the Nevada State Athletic Commission under an assumed name?

    What a ridiculous overreaction... if you're gonna make an example out of someone at least have the punishment match the crime. Marijuana isn't even a performance enhancing drug.

    NSAC is such a ****ing joke... even worse than those idiots at FIFA.

    I'm not a big fan of the smoke, but let's face it, you can't go anywhere anymore without smelling it. This smacks of prohibition. The majority of the general populace (through my unofficial poll, accurate within 3% 19 times out of 20) either wants it legalized or doesn't care. Putting people in jail for it seems like huge overkill. Honestly, alcohol seems worse.

    It funny that it's legal in a number of States and yet people are going to jail over a weed. Also, why in the world would marijuana be on a list of banned substances for an athlete? I'm pretty certain that it's not a performance enhancing drug. Is crack cocaine or MDMA on the list...although maybe they are performance enhancing...whatever. Bizarre

    I don't use it myself, though I think its completely absurd that people get the book thrown at them because of the war on pot, based on crusty pseudo-science, superstition, and prejudice from a century ago.
