I don't know how so many people who've never met Nick can talk about him being a douchebag or a dick either. He's probably one of the nicest MMA fighters I've ever met and will talk to you for hours about MMA, training, jiu jitsu, nutrition, whatever. If you came up to him talking ****, yeah you'll probably get 5 across the eye but if you show respect he'll talk to you about anything really. Nate's the same way. Also, during your conversation with Nick or Nate you should expect to be asked to train at Cesar's at least 10 times...

smoking weed certainly isnt improving the kid's performance but he's still a bonehead for smoking the stuff when he's training


with his level of physical fitness he wouldnt likely keep thc stored for long. he probably smokes through camp


a period of a few weeks max. fat people store that **** away, but somebody like diaz will detox quickly and piss that **** out.

Great article on this situation from comedian Jamie Kilstein

http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2012/2/11...uana-editorial

Quote:
In a sport where competitors are routinely elbowed in the face and choked unconscious (sometimes with their own limbs), the UFC's fans sure are a bunch of babies when it comes to weed.

This week Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer stated in an email that "...[Nick] Diaz tested positive for marijuana metabolites," after his fight at UFC 143.

UFC overlord Dana White said he was "beyond disappointed" in Diaz, and to paraphrase the hellish abyss we know as internet comments, "F**K DIAZ, YO SHULD FIRE HIS DICK 4 BEING STOOPID! NO HOMO!"

The thing is: there is no physical advantage to smoking pot in the fight game. Maybe you will come up with a new arm bar variation, but you will immediately forget it once another Walking Dead marathon comes on.

In the U.S no one has ever overdosed on marijuana, while alcohol kills more people than crack, cocaine, and heroin, combined.

But what do we see when we turn on the UFC's reality show The Ultimate Fighter? A house stacked with angry juice, and it always ends badly: people pissing on each other, fist fights, property destruction, etc. I've never gotten high and thrown a chair through a wall...mostly because I am sitting in that chair.

I get it. Rules are rules, even when they are ****ty rules. But Nick needs marijuana to treat a legit medical condition. ****, he even has a prescription.

It's hard for the general population to accept that weed has legitimate medical effects, since the general population doesn't take their insulin in Target parking lots, or on beanbag chairs listening to Bob Marley or Tool (depending on the mood). But ADHD and Anxiety can be crippling to some people.

Have you seen Nick interviewed? The dude is not acting. He hates it and can barely maintain eye contact. And leading up to this main event with three Primetime specials airing on FX -- on top of the regular press grind -- it was the most pressure that he had ever faced.

Diaz, although known as the bad boy, is one of the healthiest fighters the UFC has on it's roster. He is a vegan, leaning towards a mostly raw, whole food, plant based diet. In his down time, what does he do? Get into bar fights? Take steroids? Rip people off in shady real estate deals? No. He competes in ****ing triathlons! He doesn't put anything into his body unless it will make him healthier.

Not long ago, light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was disqualified for using an illegal elbow against Matt Hamill. That is also a stupid rule, and people called it a stupid rule. The 12-6 elbow is banned like it's some sort of Dim Mak death touch, even though it's the same as other elbows. But back then people weren't screaming, "Jon Jones knows the rules! Fire him!" No. They were furious he was disqualified and had his back.

But Nick Diaz is not Jon Jones. Nick Diaz will never be on the tonight show, he won't be in a commercial, and if he did do a commercial, it would be the most awkward commercial of all time.

Nick Diaz fights. It's what he is good at. It's what we love watching him do. Nick Diaz needs help and support, not to have what he is brilliant at taken away from him.

Study: Pot smokers twice as likely to have car accidents

By Elizabeth Cunningham Perkins
Feb 11, 2012

A new study at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada has provided evidence that drivers who smoke pot even hours before operating a motor vehicle are twice as likely to cause crashes as drivers not under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
BBC News reported the study's findings published in the British Medical Journal confirming the link between cannabis use up to three hours before driving and increased risk of causing car collisions, probably due to impairment of motor and brain functions needed to operate a vehicle safely, the researchers speculated.
The researchers reviewed and analyzed nine previous studies of 49,411 people from many locations around the world who had been involved in crashes on public roads between one or more cars, sports utility vehicles, vans, trucks, buses and motorcycles, focusing upon collisions related to cannabis use in which at least one person was injured or killed, and they found the risk of causing a serious or fatal accident almost doubled for drivers who had consumed cannabis within three hours of getting behind the wheel, according to study lead-author Mark Asbridge and Dalhousie University's department of community health and epidemiology.
This study is the first to separate the effects on driving of alcohol and other substances from the effects of cannabis, though cannabis is the most popular illicit substance worldwide, and is increasingly being consumed while rates of driving under the influence rise globally, the researchers claimed.
The authors concluded consuming cannabis impairs motor tasks necessary for safe driving, and suggested future studies review and assess minor accidents in the wider driving population for increased risk after cannabis use.
