    Yeah let's talk about weed, if it should be legal or not, if it is a medicine or not etc.
    Because there are very few threads about that, only 4 or 5 every week.

    I can see someone being suspended for getting caught with weed in their system, as it is still an illegal drug in most states, but overturning the outcome of a fight because of it seems pretty ridiculous to me.

    UFC Fighter Alex Caceres Accepts Responsibility for Failed Drug Test, Issues Statement
    UFC Fighter Alex Caceres Accepts Responsibility for Failed Drug Test, Issues Statement | MMAWeekly.com
    It was revealed on Wednesday that UFC on Fuel TV 8 fighter Alex Caceres failed his drug test following his March 3 fight against Kyung Ho Kang, having tested positive for marijuana metabolites.

    He received a six-month suspension retroactive to the date of the event, agreed to attend drug rehabilitation classes, and must pass a drug test upon completing his suspension before he can return to competition.

    Caceres made no attempt to diminish his responsibility for failing the drug test, and issued the following statement to MMAWeekly.com late Wednesday afternoon:

    “I accept full responsibility for my actions and the consequences from those actions. I apologize to all that I have disappointed, including the UFC, my family, coaches, training partners and fans. I accept the sanctions from the UFC and I look forward to completing the necessary steps to getting back in the octagon following the suspension and assuring that this never happens again.”

    Cacares suspended for marijuna; Fukuda also test positive

    All 22 fighters on the UFC® on FUEL TV 8 card were drug tested at the event and all fighters passed their drug tests with the exception of Alex Caceres and Riki Fukuda.

    Caceres tested positive for marijuana metabolites following his bout. He has agreed to attend drug rehabilitation classes and will receive a 6-month suspension retroactive to the date of the event and must pass a drug test upon completion of the suspension before receiving clearance to compete again. The outcome of Caceres bout against Kyung Ho Kang will be changed to a no contest.

    Fukuda’s results showed the presence of Phenylpropanolamine, Norpseudoephedrine and Ephedrine, which are stimulants and banned substances. Based on Fukuda’s last loss he has been released from his contract with the UFC and the results of his positive test will be reported to the official Association of Boxing Commissions record-keeper.
