Following sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson’s Olympics ban, the Nevada State Athletic Commission said it would no longer discipline fighters for cannabis use.
Elsewhere in the fallout:
- An Insider columnist called her ban “dumb, archaic and immoral.“
- CannaBitch Jackie Bryant said bad rules are made to be broken.
- And copy writer Jessica Reilly wrote about the problem with cannabis industry support for Richardson: “Sha’Carri Richardson is not a cannabis ambassador. She is a not a brand spokesperson and she is not a cannabis influencer. She is an elite and dedicated athlete who has trained her entire life to win these races. And she certainly didn’t ask to be aligned with your cannabis brand.”
