UFC Removes Weed from List of Banned Substances

From this point forward, UFC brawls should be a whole lot more interesting.

Effective immediately, a fighter who tests positive for THC — the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana — will not be charged with a doping violation, according to the United States Anti-Doping Agency.

However, a fighter can be penalized if the UFC is able to prove he used weed as a “performance-enhancing drug,” the USADA reveals.

Would it be more entertaining to watch two fighters go toe-to-toe when they’re high? Would you say weed enhances your performance?
