    I like the guy but he is saying marijuana is performance enhancing, he is not for the nasc decision but i disagre with his thinking.

    i smoked once before wrestling practice even a few hours before and i was useless during practice cardio wise.

    I dont know what Joe was saying, but as far as psychonauts go, the guy has an extensive list of compounds under his belt. From one tripper to another, the guy knows his shit. Just today a friend of mine said he can hit the weights hard after some bowls, and I know the few times Ive done some curls after a sesh you really do not feel too much.

    i had a friend who fought a guy who was stoned out of his mind on weed in highschool and he kept kneeing his head and the dude kept taking it...id say yes it does numb pain and provide an advantage.

    Joe said he does believe it improves performance, but he doesn't agree with the ruling because he doesn't believe Diaz was on pot at the time of the fight. That the effects "last about 2 hours".

    Meh, I guess it depends on the individual but overall marijuana heightens the senses. I can't see it being an advantage in a combat sport at all. The mental aspect of it would be disastrous. Making quick and logical decisions during a fight and reacting to your opponent would me much more difficult I'd expect.

    which is the #1 reason why it is banned by sanctioning states. They dont want someone coming into a fight stoned and having slow reactions and getting hurt, just liek they dont want someone coming in drunk.

    and yes, it numbs pain. Its a scientific fact. However, it numbs pain for things like arthritis, bad joints, aches, etc.. Not a broken orbital. Can it help a little? Maybe. can it help with the pain of being submitted past your ROM? Maybe.

    So without listening to the context of what Joe said, I agree, it can be a performance enhancing drug as much as many things on the banned list. However, taking that win away from Diaz was ridiculous.

    I think it can help you. I play all types of sports high, and I still perform very well. It just affects people differently.

    It seems like it would dull your reaction time and make you more susceptible to gassing out.

    I can understand his comments for BJJ but not for MMA.

    I'm tellin you guys right now, my jiu jitsu is straight NASTY when I'm high. Not only that but my striking/transitions are a lot more fluid.

    Its hard to describe but it absolutely makes a difference. You pay the price in terms of speed and cardio though.

    Its a pain suppressant, it has its performance enhancing perks.
