From Fightnews:

The World Anti-Doping Agency has announced a decision to increase the tolerance of tetrahydrocannabinol, the active ingredient in marijuana, seeking to reduce the number of cases for recreational use of this substance. The modification in the regulation elevates the detection limit required for testing positive from 15 nanograms per milli-liter to 150 nanograms.

One of the highest profile cases in recent times was that of former world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr after his match against Sergio Maravilla Martinez, held in September last year. Junior was suspended and socked with a $900,000 fine after testing positive.

This is bullshit, cannabis is an illegal and harmful drug, what message is this sending out
You're talking bullshit Earl. Cannabis is far less harmful than alcohol and it's illegality is more of a political issue than one of health.
You sound like a pot-head.

I can't stand Pot-heads, slackers the lot of you.
