Apparently when out of competition, you can go all Hunter Thompson with shit and fuck all. At least that's the message I'm getting from the UFC and NSAC.
Yes, but weed stays in a system so long it shows up during pre/post fight test even if the last joint was a month or more ago
Cocaine is gone in 2-4 days
It's not a banned substance in WADA's out-of-competition tests. The NAC follows the WADA lists. I don't know if all commissions do.
Weed stays in your system less than 72 hours for 1 use. Up to 45 days for a habitual user. Tbh, idk how any of these dudes fail a drug test for weed, if you know you are getting tested you can pass one in 7-10 days max if you are a 3 times a day smoker everyday.
FWIW, the NAC has raised the threshold of what's considered a failed test. Under the new rule, Diaz wouldn't have failed for the Condit fight. He still would have failed for the Gomi fight, though.
This. So you basically cannot smoke weed for at least 5 weeks before the fight.
What is the definition of "in-competition" vs "out of competition"? Is there a specific time frame?
This is for normal people who do jack squat about passing a test, IE: morons.
"In competition" begins 12 hours before your scheduled fight and ends when they finish their post-fight sample collection.
"in-competition" means you're in the competition phase. "out of competition" means you're no longer in the competition phase.
cool i smoke pot on a regular but was curious about this as you know there is a bunch of idiots saying but diaz snd riddle got in trouble,just as i suspected it is legal out of comp thanks not some one sided rule to favor jones in his coke habit
Thanks. I heard they had (NFL increased their tolerance as well), but I'm not familiar enough with how much smoking how long ago leads to how high a number type thing.
I don't know the answer to that either. I know that Diaz said he stopped smoking 8 days before the Condit fight, so, assuming he was telling the truth, that's some kind of frame of reference, I guess.
People in here are wrong.
It is NOT legal to smoke weed or snort coke.
The difference is that they are not tested (not the same thing).
The even bigger problem, is that the AC did not envision someone would be wrongly tested (and fail) for Cocaine. So they had no rules about this.
And in order to mitigate the weed issue (catching people who potentially smoked a month before the fight), they increased the amount of metabolites they can find in your body.
But don't it wrong. Just because they are not testing, it doesn't mean it is ok to do it
well.. that was the message they were "supposed to pass" (and failed big time)
