She doesn’t think commissions should test for it…
UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey spoke out against drug testing for marijuana for fighters in MMA. Below are some highlights on Rousey discussing the topic.
Rousey on her belief that marijuana is not a PED: "Honestly I feel like weed is not a performance-enhancing drug at all,. We are tested for it for entirely political reasons. The athletic commission is there to make sure we compete fairly and they are testing us for something that has nothing to do with athletic competition."
Rousey on testing for it being an invasion of privacy: "It is beyond their rights [to test for marijuana]. It's actually an invasion of privacy."
