The high-intensity competitive sport of skateboarding has been around for several decades. This isn’t exactly a lazy person’s hobby. It requires strength, agility, coordination, and endurance. Of course, you can’t forget to mention an extremely high tolerance for pain and the ability to heal quickly. This is where many skaters enjoy cannabis to help with the healing process. This is in addition to helping with taking the edge off from a day of intense skating.
Recently, a skater by the name of Corey Juneau received a six-month suspension after failing a drug test that was administered by the Brazilian anti-doping agency. Cory tested positive for THC but was given the option to attend a USADA anti-doping course which reduced his punishment from a 6-month to a 3-month sanction.
