Pat Healy on marijuana situation
Category: Celebrities | Posted on Tue, May, 28th 2013 by THCFinder
If Pat Healy knew what smoking a little weed at his friend's birthday party was going to cause, he never would have done it.
"I wish I could go back in time and slap myself," Healy said. "It was a dumb thing to do."
On Monday's edition of The MMA Hour, Healy broke his silence on his recent suspension for marijuana use, which kicked off a storm of controversy.
Calling in from a vacation in Hawaii, Healy said he smoked marijuana a few weeks out from his UFC 159 fight against Jim Miller and never bothered to think it would be a big deal.
"It was about three and a half, four weeks out," Healy said. "I was at a friend's birthday party, just hanging out. To be honest I didn't even think it would be an issue, you know? It was a huge mistake and I just didn't even think."
The Team Quest fighter had a breakthrough performance at UFC 159, as he earned Fight of the Night and Submission of the Night bonuses totaling $130,000 after defeating Miller in Newark. When the New Jersey Athletic Control Board post-fight drug tests showed marijuana in his system, though, Miller's win was overturned to a no-contest and he was stripped of his bonuses.
Healy broke the news of the test failure and the reason for it on his own, looking to keep bad information from getting out.

How America Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Marijuana
Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, May, 28th 2013 by THCFinder
For nearly a century, the United States has been one of the fiercest advocates and practitioners of marijuana prohibition in the world. At the height of the America’s anti-pot fervor in the 1950s and ’60s, one could even receive life imprisonment for simple possession of the drug.
But the puritanical fervor that once dominated the national discussion surrounding cannabis has been conspicuously absent of late. Earlier this month, the Colorado State legislature, by order of a November referendum, passed bills to implement the legalization and regulation of recreational marijuana use. Washington State voters also approved legalization by referendum on election day. And these events have recently been followed by more good news for supporters of cannabis law reform. The Organization for American States recently suggested that marijuana legalization could be a way to cut down on drug-violence in the western hemisphere. Perhaps most important, the movement has finally found a voice on Capitol Hill, as representatives Earl Blumenauer and Jared Polis submitted legislation earlier this year that would end federal prohibition of the drug, and allow states to tax and regulate it as they see fit. As Bill Keller put it recently in the New York Times, “Today the most interesting and important question is no longer whether marijuana will be legalized — eventually, bit by bit, it will be — but how.”
