Canada: How will the legalization of cannabis affect athletes? It's hard to say

While there’s been plenty of discussion around the pending legalization of cannabis, its effect on athletes hasn’t been part of the conversation. One of the reasons for the absence of dialogue is marijuana’s reputation for impairing, not improving athletic performance, which makes cannabis a poor workout partner.

The other reason that athletes have been left out of the discourse is the inclusion of marijuana on the World Anti Doping Association’s (WADA) list of substances banned during the competitive season, thereby limiting its use among elite athletes. Yet despite these factors, marijuana is reported to be the second most popular drug among athletes, after alcohol. It replaces tobacco, which ranks No. 2 among the rest of the population.

Researchers wanted to discover if teens who use e-cigarettes are more likely to use cannabis than those who don’t. It’s previously been shown that teens who smoke regular cigarettes are more likely to consume cannabis.
