Pot smoking and Olympic Snowboarders

February 18th, 2010

Listening to Shaun White talk with his teammates before dropping in to the halfpipe tonight for his (unnecessary–he’d already won the gold medal) final run, made me wonder what the IOC policy on marijuana was. Yeah, they sounded like a bunch of stoners. Apparently, the USADA is cracking down this year, making all Olympic atheletes provide their precise whereabouts for a 60 minue window each day. Okay for some sports, but pinning snowboarders down to a schedule might be a little, well, ambitious.

The Olympics seems like they’re simultaneously getting less serious and taking themselves more seriously.

And Pot is a “performance enhancing” drug? Yeah. Totally.
