Last week the NCAA committee, which is the National Collegiate Athletic Association officially requested that legislation be passed to remove cannabis from the banned substances list for college athletes. The committee explained that the existing policy of testing and penalizing in the belief that cannabis is a performance-enhancing drug is entirely false.

The committee chair, James Houle made this comment in a press release on September 22: “We are recommending a big shift in the paradigm when it comes to cannabinoids. We want to modernize the strategy with the most up-to-date research to give schools the best opportunity to support the health of student-athletes.”
