MMA FIGHTER OPENLY SMOKES POT

04.09.09 9 years ago 6 Comments

Nick Diaz smokes marijuana. He’s open about it, to the point that he’ll divulge how he beats the testing for it. But it’s his reasoning for getting high that’s most baffling–it organizes his thoughts. From the Times…that’s the LA Times, not High Times:

“I’m more consistent about everything being a cannabis user,” Diaz said in an interview with The Times last week. “I’m happy to get loaded, hear some good music . . . I remain consistent. And I have an easy way to deal with [the drug tests].

“I can pass a drug test in eight days with herbal cleansers. I drink 10 pounds of water and sweat out 10 pounds of water every day. I’ll be fine.”

Diaz’s habit will be additionally useful since he has to jump up a weight class to fight Frank Shamrock, who is dropping down in weight. The Strikeforce bout is this Saturday and will air on Showtime. Make sure your friends bring plenty of snacks.

Enjoy a Karate Kid-esque montage of Diaz after the jump.
