Does anyone smoke weed before going to the Gym or having a run.
Apparently a lot of Athletes do:
Former NBA All-Star player, Charles Oakley has claimed that over half of NBA players smoke pot before each game.
The most decorated Olympian of all time Michael Phelps, who has won 22 medals,
was famously photographed smoking a bong in 2009.
Elite triathlete, Clifford Drusinsky has also revealed that his runner's high is induced.
"Marijuana relaxes me and allows me to go into a controlled, meditational place," Drusinsky told Men's Journal.
"When I get high, I train smarter and focus on form."
"I personally know boxers, body builders, cyclists, runners and athletes from all walks of life that train and compete with the assistance of marijuana," WWE wrestler Rob Van Dam wrote in a separate article, "but they might not feel comfortable sharing this information."
The World Anti-Doping Agency's decision to ban it was based on studies that suggested it
may help athletes to stay calm and it acts as a bronchiodilator, increasing airflow to the lungs.
In 1998, Canadian snowboarder Ross Rebagliati won an Olympic gold medal after smoking marijuana.
The medal was temporarily revoked after blood tests revealed Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC – the active ingredient in cannabis) in his system, however his medal was returned because marijuana was not on the International Olympic Committee's list of banned substances (it now is, at a much higher dose than what Rebagliati had taken).
The Worlds First Marijuana Gym called the Power Plant is set to open in San Francisco.
Here you can happily smoke a bong and pump some Iron.
