SMU QB is caught doping last September but he plays the season and he pays a two month suspension in the off season? They must have had their lawyers in on this as well. CIS and the AUS need to get real and serious. SMU...new level of cheater

"Caught doping"? Doping with marajauna?  Roll Eyes

I wouldn't encourage athletes, or anyone, to smoke marajauna but that's not even going to be illegal in a few more months.

Peter,

Would you have any insight into, when pot is legal, what will the USports positions be? Will they stop testing for pot?

I agree. Has there ever been any USport athlete who has been penalized in-season for something as harmless as a little weed? I'd be more surprised if they tested a group of athletes at university and found one who was not smoking it. I'm not even sure why morphine and fentanyl are prohibited ... or alcohol (in-competition) for that matter.

I don't know what U Sports position will be but I think they may stop testing for it. Or at least stop disciplining for it.

Teams would still be able to discipline for it, as they do with alcohol use. No coach wants a team of pot-heads. Lots of NCAA teams discipline for marajauna use. A significant portion of the cases of "player suspended for unspecified violation of team rules" relate to marajauna.

That's kind of derogatory. Like it or not, it is the recreation drug of choice in university ... including athletes. Its use is neck and neck with alcohol, trust me. In fact, kids smoke weed often on a daily basis where booze is most often consumed on weekends. As long as they're not high at gametime, why should anyone care.

Of course it is derogatory. Marajauna does not enhance performance it hinders it. Like fatty foods are bad for serious athletes. The more serious an athlete the lower the likelihood they use marajauna.

Most of the substances on the CIS banned list are not illegal.  Peter, why do you assume they will make an exception for marijuana?

Couldn't be more wrong! Hopefully this ignorance will be history, along with the stigma associated with recreational use of marijuana, once it becomes legalized. A little advice to Peter. If you don't want your image of USports athletes tarnished, please stay out of the dorms and the social gatherings on and off campus at Guelph.

Totally disagree. TONS of NFL players smoke weed and they are probably pretty serious athletes. Many of them use it as a painkiller/recovery drug which doesn't hinder performance at all. Where is your research that says it hinders performance? Obviously if you're high on the field it would, but that's too obvious a statement to count

No Medical Doctor anywhere will tell anyone that inhaling smoke into their lungs is "good for you" ...it is NOT, smoking pot can lead to lung cancer especially in otherwise healthy athletes because the lungs do not like it. Pot is a toxin as well.

-- New research from Canada shows that some toxins may be more abundant in marijuana cigarettes than tobacco cigarettes.

The researchers burned 30 marijuana cigarettes and 30 tobacco cigarettes on a machine in their lab, measuring levels of chemicals in the smoke.

Ammonia levels were up to 20 times higher in marijuana smoke than in tobacco smoke. Levels of hydrogen cyanide and nitrogen-related chemicals were three to five times higher in marijuana smoke than in tobacco smoke.

Marijuana smoke and tobacco smoke shared many of the same chemicals. But the two types of smoke weren't identical.

For instance, marijuana doesn't contain nicotine. And tobacco doesn't contain cannabinoids, which include THC, marijuana's active ingredient

Tobacco has long been linked to cancer and other health problems.

AND - no HC wants a team of Potheads too

So much for Justin Trudeau's idiocy to legalize pot

Y’all missed the point. Point is a rule was broken, a player on SMU was caught. The punishment is 2 months no participation. Because it’s SMU with the big boy lawyers the boy serves it in the winter off season and doesn’t miss a beat, a practice or a game. Shady AF. That be like suspending a hockey player in the dead of summer. And of course the story comes out after the sentence is served. Rules are rules for everyone except SMU

Nobody said it was “good for you”. Which is arguable … defpending on usage.  That doesn’t mean however that it isn’t used prolifically among many athletes - amateur and professional.

And nobody missed the point. We all know that Rules are applied differently to SMU … always have and always will, so debating it ad nauseum just gets tiring and is just a useless exercise.

The point is an Acadia player probably sold it to him and a couple X players sexually assaulted his girlfriend.

Marijuanna is also used medicinally, for pain.
In short time it will be accepted.   It's not a performance enhancer, it's a relaxer.

And another one! SMU just keeps racking it up. Good lawyers help. USports needs to grow some balls and sanction this type of stuff during the season! Players at SMU are like “who cares boys, I pee in a cup knowing I’m breaking rules but USport won’t get at me till the off season.” Suspension in the off season is no penalty. Cheaters who know how to play the system.

Old thread but still relevant (and easier than starting a new one. I thought it amusing the SMU would have kick points negates for “illegal substitution”. Everything they do is legal...at least after the lawyers get finished with it. Substitution?? they can substitute whoever they want, whenever they want. Those AUS officials had better remember that before the next court battle. On a side note, when is the next drug test results due? Doesn’t the league apply those suspensions in preseason so it won’t hurt SMU?  Cheesy
