It actually saddens me. If he wants to get high , that's his business, and as long as he keeps it to himself he won't have any problems. This is not a weed right/wrong issue to me. It's a intelligence/ hypocrisy one. Still, I would think a guy so supposedly dedicated to his career, wouldn't make this kind of mistake , knowing how it would cost him. Suspensions, possible sponsorships, maybe even delaying a title shot. If he know's he could be tested( and that it's a violation of the rules) , and still does it knowing the possible damage to his career, it doesn't make him look very bright. He claims a be catholic, but has all this eastern mysticism stuff around him, which is in direct comflict with catholocism. I guess the thing that bother's me more than anything is I just don't like hypocrisy. Definately not his most shining moment.

I see the CSAC only gave Diego a 3month suspension as oppose to Nick's 6 month NSAC suspension. Well he also broke his orbital bone too.

Saddens me to see two young fighters get busted for shit this trivial. Doesn't exactly do their communities any justice either. What's next? Villasenor and Melendez puffin the reefs with their camp buddies too?

I personally don't think that marijuana should be considered performance inhancing in any way...

I know that it's illegal, so the NSAC should simply turn them over to the authorities, which can do nothing if there is no physical evidence besides a mild fine, and not tarnish their careers with this trivial bullshit...

although it is trivial... it's still against the law and the authorities cant be seen to ignore it...
the fact he was only given a three month ban and a small fine shows that they don't take it that seriously (3 months is not really going to interfere with his fighting/training) but they do have to be seen to be doing something to stop the use of any drugs

They should worry about real drugs and steroids rather than wasting time and money on pot

Confucius say man who stand on toilet,high on pot

I think they should be turned over to the police also. in my experience pot slowes you reaction times down, why the hell would you do it when make a living trying not to have your head kicked off your shoulders

I agree with waylon here. I dont see it enhancing anything at all. If anything, it would hinder most peoples performance. I lost some respect for Sanchez for this one

I don't like Sanchez to begin with so this is quite hilarious to me.

Cool.......great that he's a fello stoner.....now pass that shit!

Smoking weed is a guilty pleasure for Sanchez....im sure he knows its bad,but still have to hit that shit if they pass it your way!..lol

If they all of a sudden banned sex during fighting 2 weeks before a fight....im sure you wouldnt think twice about it if a hot (like the girl in my avatar) walked up to you ......and you know...

Weedies.....Breakfast of Champions!...

Except for the religous part that I really know nothing about I agree with you 100%. He let me down big time. I've always seen him as one of the most dedicated and driven fighters in the sport. This just messed it all up.

I don't think that the pot helped him get the win. It sucks that it's illegal, but he broke the rules. Off with his head!

Pot is less of a hindrance than alcohol, yet nobody has a problem with fighters drinking. Anyone who says they lost respect for Sanchez over this is just being stupid. Pot stays in your system for a long time, you can test positive without having smoked it recently and not be affected by it at all.

Ross Ribliati is it? that snowboarder who was at a party where there was people smoking pot got his medal taken away because of trace amounts in his bloodstream. Maybe its the same case for Diego

No offense, but I will never understand why there is so much pride in smoking. I see it all the time (though I do live in Burlington VT! haha). I don't have a problem with it, I just think its funny because I see it all the time with people who are regular smokers.

Ross Rebgliati - he got his medal back since it wasn't performance enhancing.

None tokin' ... I mean takin'. I'm from Vansterdam (Vancouver, BC) where everyone tokes. It's part of our culture. We have the best pot in the world. Maybe you just haven't smoke the primo. I've only smoked hay in the US. What's the burlington VT reference?

thats actually a terrible punishment. $500? Thats nothing to him (or anyone really). And 3 months? How does that hurt him? At his level he wont compete until after 3 months anyways.
So in reality he got $500 for testing positive. Shame on the world. If your gonna make things illegal at least make the punishment something that will deter people.

I wasnt defending him, that was his story. He probably was sucking down the ganja
