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.



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.

Burlington is the east coast capital. Though for what you're used to you should try Mendocino county... shhhh

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