Holy f****** s***!!Are they f****** retards?They gave smaller suspension for roiders but they give 1 year for f****** weed metabolytes.You can have metabolytes for up to 30 days in your body even if you stopped smoking for 30 days.So there’s no way smoking weed 10 days before a fight will still give you some performance enhancement even if I and every smart person knows weed isnt a performance enhancer when trt isn’t considered one.I hope every single person responsible for this decision gets cancer and dies really soon.These people are morons.

Goddammm all the hate on the SPliff WTF wrong with these people? Roid Ragers gets way lest than that. How the hell a bloke on weed can be considered enhanced for combat? hahahhaha

Genghis Khan Says, in 5-21-2012 at 22:42:41 from    

lol… now this is f*****. Overoid get a reduced sentence while Nick gets the full penalty.

The world of MMA is lossing one of the most unique and wonderfull mma artist thanks to this moronic unrealistic suspension,to avoid any other comments is sad to not to be able to have Nick Diaz in the octagon,,the most complete and entertaing mmartist of all in his wgt.

Powertele Says, in 5-21-2012 at 23:08:08 from    

That is why Nick wants to retire. He wants to be able to live the life he wants. Nevada allows so much trash to occur but dude cant smoke some weed. I am by all means against weed smoking, but it does not enhance, it takes away. Overroid get 9 and Diaz gets 12. This really sucks. We are missing out on one of our best and most entertaining fighters. This really really sucks.

Please… Says, in 5-21-2012 at 23:18:39 from    

Oh really? Of all the arguments you can have for Nick, you pick the “fact” that marijuana is not a PED? Well you chemist geniuses, it is an inhibitor and it is illegal… so you are retarded and have no argument, you are all just bitching.

SEAN_VANCE Says, in 5-21-2012 at 23:20:21 from    

Amazing….dude takes a performance disadvantage drug and gets 12 months?? WOW…. F*** it Nick, just go for some roids next time! Ull get off the hook way easier!

RONDOG Says, in 5-21-2012 at 23:47:39 from    

How about you don’t use roids or marijuana idiots! It’s illegal and against the rules so if you want to keep your very lucrative job then don’t do it, its that simple. Don’t hate on the other guy that got busted and less than you. That’s like rating on your partner in crime just because you got caught and he didn’t. Where is the honor in that? If you cant do the time, don’t do the crime!

Yommomamoto Norifumi Says, in 5-22-2012 at 00:43:31 from    

@ Please…so what are you trying to say?

The main point it appears people are trying to make is:

The judgements handed out to roiders (a clearly accepted illegal PED with supposedly many strength, athletic, endurance etc benefits):

Compared to the judgement handed out to Diaz concerning cannabis a drug that is debatable in terms of its performance enhancing, one that is def. not commonly acknowledged as a PED but currently more of a personal choice recreational drug:

Are inconsistent and unjust.

What’s your point?

That you’re a b***h that cowers and accepts the “drugs are bad mmmkay” line from the Gubmint Health Racket that the NSAC is trying to reinforce?

You clown.

You’re probably some low level pencil pusher despot in some dead end meaningless state agency bureaucracy.

Please elaborate on how you consider cannabis to “enhance” and athletes performance in MMA?

Please explain how the disparity in punishment is justified in your opinion or something you condone Mr. “it’s illegal”

Yommomamoto Norifumi Says, in 5-22-2012 at 00:52:58 from    

@RONDOG: Well I guess it comes down to if you think something used in the structured context of an athletes life like Diaz’s constitutes an illegality.

I don’t and neither do more and more people who are coming around to the realization the pathetic, unjust, selective, racial/cultural/lifestyle stereotyping and targeting carried out by authorities in the name of “The War on Drugs” is a total sham and nothing to do with preventing drug related harm reduction.

Buster Hymen Says, in 5-22-2012 at 00:52:59 from    

I want 1 year for Jon Bones Jones, 1 year for Overeem, etc… this is insane.

I do not smoke weed.

Clearly, weed does not help in a fight. It is far less destructive than alcohol and actually has some strong medicinal value.

I just don’t blame Nick anymore for leaving. F*** the Nevada Comission… we just lost an amazing talent for no good reason.

jack.perpetual Says, in 5-22-2012 at 01:05:37 from    

BREAKING NEWS!!! Every single one of those guys just got cancer and died.

xjsnowbum Says, in 5-22-2012 at 01:20:07 from    

^^^ RONDONG and Please… You guys that are bringing up the obvious about pot being illegal are idiots. The point that people are trying to make is that it is absolutely insane that steroid users (who are damaging their bodies/potentially endangering their opponents) are getting punished less than someone who is obviously not enhancing his performance at all. Everyone understands that both are illegal so stop being conservative condescending douche bags and acting like people don’t get that. You sound like the old ignorant generation.

wow Says, in 5-22-2012 at 03:56:05 from    

This is so wrong….

I agree any drug in any sport is wrong, but for crying out loud Cannabis does not assist you, infact it hampers your lung capacity your thinking.. If anything he is giving his opponent an advantage.

I cant see Nick caring enough to come back after this which is a great shame..

If he turns his back on MMA i do hope he has a crack at pro boxing cause dammit the man is a smooth criminal

Fishturd Says, in 5-22-2012 at 05:39:17 from    

If a law as dumb as this should be enforced, then so should other Nevada laws like in Elko, where everyone walking the streets is required to wear a mask. Or how about in Eureka, Nevada men who have mustaches are forbidden from kissing women.

Just because it is a law doesn’t mean it isn’t dumb and nonsensical. Most of us are aware how broken this system is, why try and push it if it doesn’t make sense? Stupid laws passed by stupid idiots.

SaoNi Says, in 5-22-2012 at 05:46:54 from    

I blow. Yet i kind of get it that you shouldn’t use marihuana if your employer asks you not to.
But still if you compare his sentence next to a roiders…
Maybe there was some misdemeanor-punishment to?

Tankless Says, in 5-22-2012 at 06:03:51 from    

Retarded ? YES! To give Nick 12 months for MJ MB`s is lame but he got the extreme for trying to sue them. Its bullshit but does it surprise any of us?

greengiant Says, in 5-22-2012 at 06:30:14 from    

@KungFuLowKick don’t worry you will get whats coming to you for saying s*** like that.

greengiant Says, in 5-22-2012 at 06:31:32 from    

maybe because of nicks attitude they were more harsh,who knows.i don’t agree with a more strict penalty for weed,thats ridicules.

Lol Says, in 5-22-2012 at 06:44:39 from    

I doubt just testing positive for a banned substance is the only criteria that factors into a sentencing decision; if it was then they wouldn’t bother having hearings and giving the “guilty” a day in court.

Whether THC is a performance enhancing substance is irrelevant at this point; it’s banned so don’t do it if you wish to legally compete at this level. Smoke pot or fight professionally.

Lol Says, in 5-22-2012 at 06:48:42 from    

If everyone understood that it’s illegal and you shouldn’t do it if you want to compete a pro level; than you wouldn’t be bitching about decicions, you’d be doing something useful like outlining a plan to legally get the PED list that the NSAC checks fighters for changed.

rockinout Says, in 5-22-2012 at 07:39:08 from    

I listened to this whole thing yesterday. I’m not a Diaz fan, I could care less if he ever fights again or not. The problem is that the commission can just ignore fact and make whatever they decision they want. Diaz’s lawyer made some great points and the commission acted like they didn’t even listen. It sucks for fighters in general know that this is how these commissions operate. Also anyone comparing what Diaz did to drunk driving or steroids is just butthurt. They’re separate issues, treat them like it.

Ozinator Says, in 5-22-2012 at 08:51:22 from    

The “it’s illegal” line is bad on different levels

1) The cops haven’t come to bust down his door and arrest him because it is NOT illegal to have THC in your system anywhere in the US. It’s a rule for fighting in NV that you don’t have it in your system.

2) dumb laws with lots of moneyed interests behind them NEVER get changed by voting or writing letters. Breaking these laws is the only way and becomes morally right. If you don’t want to smoke pot, burn your draft card or own slaves, at least stop siding with the authoritarians demanding that you turn in your fellow man. Let the courageous be free and set an example for us

2e1y8dfh Says, in 5-22-2012 at 10:04:54 from    

you are all stupid idiots! overeem didnt test for steroids SO NO NICK DID NOT GET IT WORSE FOR THC THEN STEROIDS !!! OVEREEM TESTED FOR A RAISED LEVEL OF TESTOSTERONE! hes not just a loser drug addict who couldnt wait to smoke more dope! you stupid retards

VisionQuest Says, in 5-22-2012 at 11:28:01 from    

great we just lost Nick Diaz as a fighter.

uncledana Says, in 5-22-2012 at 11:30:08 from    

nevada is a medical mj state. they should allow it anyway.

SEAN_VANCE Says, in 5-22-2012 at 12:52:09 from    

@2e1y8dfh U dumb C***, testosterone IS A STEROID. SO how did his Testosterone get elevated? By magic ferries? No crack head, by taking it u dumb ass! His nut sack didnt produce those hign levels, so he took TESTOSTERONE STEROIDS to get the hormone levels higher….wow… incredible how ignorant some people are. So in you argument, as long as ur using testosterone, then its not cheating LMAO ..is ur name CHael SOnnen?

bigtigger Says, in 5-22-2012 at 12:53:44 from    

This is sad. It is a stupid rule, but a rule he knew about none the less. Why would he do it if he knew not too. The whole situation sucks, everyone looses.

Oswald Cobblepott Says, in 5-22-2012 at 15:48:14 from    

@2e1y8dfh ….Stupid-retard is a double negative, go to class!

wcoastassassin Says, in 5-22-2012 at 16:22:43 from    

Hypocrites. Basically fricken endorsing Testerone enhancement as Dana did himself and then suspending someone for a year for weed is BS. Since when was anything anyone did, enhanced by weed? This rule needs to change. What if it is prescribed then is he off the hook for medical marijuana like medical steroids that Quinton “Roid Rampage” Jackson took? I love Page but this is bull sh*t

julian moran Says, in 5-22-2012 at 16:38:31 from    

I just want to see Nick Diaz fight.

siafu Says, in 5-22-2012 at 16:49:22 from    

the sad part of all this is that probably we are never gonna see nick diaz fight again.

i dont do drugs but it’s clear as day that marijuana it isnt a ped, i dont need a medical degree to see that everyone that’s smokes it after a long time get’s a kinda slow reaction time even while speaking let alone thought processing so exacly how does that help a fighter?. im sure it helps nick with is obvious social anxiety though but that doesnt make him a better fighter.

even more stupid is this: The commission noted that Diaz had listed his medical marijuana prescription on his pre-fight questionnaire prior to a 2011 Strikeforce bout in California but failed to do the same in Las Vegas before UFC 143

so basically had nick filled his forms properly this wouldnt even be a issue. making this 1 year punishment is just unbelivable.

and tbh im pretty sure every ufc fighter or high level athelete is on something. they are just hide it well. olypians take things and dont get caught on the what is called the best drug testing in sports.
i could be very wrong here but i honestly believe that every ufc fighter is on something. it’s like chael said u got caught taking ur medicine….. just dont come with excuses after.

Bellend Bisping Says, in 5-22-2012 at 16:59:00 from    

this is f****** bullshit the world is ending in december so diaz will never fight again. he should just whup all of nevadas asses

Doyle Brunson Says, in 5-22-2012 at 17:27:08 from    

Lol bye bye nick. You can now cry at home for the next year untill you lose the next one and cry about that. Dumbass. Keep the professionalism for your brother he knows how to do it right

Buster Hymen Says, in 5-23-2012 at 00:56:37 from    

Do we get to suspend Joe Rogan for a year from broadcasting?

This is ridiculous. The commission has their head crammed firmly up their collective asses.

A year for weed? Really?

I’ll be Jon Bones Jones gets off easy on his DUI where he endangered others’ lives.

jona Says, in 5-23-2012 at 04:10:41 from    

wow 1 year, better fight outlaw todovale he can make tones of money and smoke during the fight

Licks72 Says, in 5-23-2012 at 11:36:29 from    

Just for the record- “Stupid retard” is not a double negative. It is redundant though. If the commission said that no fighters can eat red skittles and you get caught with red skittles, what should happen? If you don’t like the rule- change it or get out of the sport- don’t break it and act like everyone else is wrong. This is also a good lesson to everyone for not being a dick just to be a dick. Diaz gets no love from ANY authority figures because he already told them that he doesn’t care what they say. Character and remorse are taken into account I’m sure.

Licks72 Says, in 5-23-2012 at 11:39:39 from    

At least we have a whole year before Nick ruins another card with his lil boy attitude and unprofessional behavior. Good riddance to bad rubbish. I smoke pot and think it should be legal in the US but the existing rules are in place.
