Nate Diaz Celebrated Election Night By Smoking A UUUUGE Joint
The Diaz brothers love their whacky tobaccy. Last September, Nate’s older brother Nick was originally suspended for five years and fined $165,000 at a commission meeting after allegedly testing positive for marijuana for the third time in the state of Nevada. The public made a huge stink of this, so much so that a petition amassed 100,000 signatures and received a response from the White House. Diaz’s suspension got reduced from five years to 18 months and his fine got reduced from $165,000 to $100,000. He’ll be eligible to return to action as early as August 1, 2016.
Weed is considered a “specified substance” by the UFC anti-doping policy. It’s not an anabolic or hormonal agent, but it is still prohibited in certain cases, like in-competition.
Nate Diaz almost got pinched after his UFC 202 loss to Conor McGregor for ripping a vape pen at the post-fight press conference. He claimed it was “CBD” and “helps with the healing process and inflammation.”
And then there was that time when he Snapchatted a fat sack of that sticky just a few weeks later.
Don’t forget about the bong. Just for decoration of course.
Don’t change Diaz brothers. Keep puffin.
