Lance Frye Suspended from Weightlifting for Weed … Seriously

I am all for anti-doping policies.  Steroid use among athletes is rampant and it takes much of the fun out of the game for the rest of us.

But, sometimes it goes too far.  Recently, Lance Frye, a US Olympic Weightlifter was suspended for 9 months and stripped of one of his medals because he was found to have taken the massively powerful sports performance drug … weed.  Marijuana.

Seriously.  That’s ridiculous.   If anything, that would have HURT his performances!  Get real.

Test for ‘roids.  Test for diuretics.   But, stop waisting time and money (and a good athlete) on pot testing.
