"Formats cannabis use. And i think this is probably the major takeaway for me given what happened with chakari. Richardson given the conversations that are happening around. This is why our athletes using cannabis for for whatever purpose like we. We don't really understand this yet. I think the changing stigma reducing stigma the Changing policies around cannabis possession and distribution. Allow us to start having conversations with athletes whether they're shooters or snowboarders or long distance cyclists. Why are you using cannabis in your training program. Is it really just at the end of the hard day of training that you use it to relax or doesn't help you focus in your training and we were aware of some people who actually use it as part of their training program because it helps them focus in on the what is enduring an arduous tosca of of of training. We need to understand this. We need to know why. Professional sports athletes use cannabis and to better understand whether there's actually are self-medication going on treating anxiety of a helping themselves sleep. I have friends who've been to the olympics and had been in the olympic village with the athletes and they will tell you that cannabis is not foreign to the olympic village. You will find it there. And don't why. What is this substance doing these athletes and if we can understand that better we can understand what it is. They're trying to achieve impacts. That helps us understand whether it's really about performance or whether it somehow enabling them to do. What is a highly stressful. You think of an olympic athlete. Who showing up at the games after years of preparation. It's all on the line that athletes the pressure the anxiety loss of sleep. The pain from training must be enormous. The nausea and you know as well as anyone trevor. How much antimetric properties. jt has is. It is it that we don't know about. I think we have an opportunity to take the lid off this issue explorer. Examine it talk to these athletes. Take away the judgment in the stigma and just better understand what's going on and yet before the time on new people sneak this in so You guys did specifically look at Cannabis add pera olympians. And i think that goes into the broader picture of what could you find about What athletes were actually. If they were using cannabis archaic therapeutically. You the perry olympians. I think one of the quotes was you know if they had some quote. Unquote phantom limb. Pain or other types of morale ges You know this is a legitimate use of of an avenue. It's what were you finding about the paralympian and the the non paralympian 's what if they were using therapeutically what they were using it for and If they did are they allowed. Get exceptions to you know. This is my medicine. I need it for x. So yes there. There is something called therapeutic use exemption and this any olympic or professional athlete going into competition can apply for a t. Which is a therapeutic use exemption and they have to provide some documentation on the part of the work that i did with the ioc back in in the in twenty sixteen seventeen was reviewing the literature on cannabinoid painted particular neuropathy in which was what i was studying at the time as one of the targets. Cannabinoid therapy and they concluded that in a for athletes who had neuropathic pain and if they cut spinal cord injury amputations and a lot of paralympian suffer from these kinds of injuries that have led to them being in the condition that they're in our using cannabinoid lynn. Other things have not helped for their neuropathic. Pain we actually published in for for water. At an example of how that therapeutic use exemption for for cannabis use can be justified based on pain management principles and then a broader paper on the just overall pain management in elite sport. So a number of papers came out of those workshops but back to the tea it is possible and a number of ireland. Vn's i don't know how many it's hard to get data but they have applied for and can show up to a professional event or a aesthetic events with a use exemption. There are encouraged to use journal or nab alone with just in mexico or isolated. Thc compounds that if those have been tried in all works they can have possession of cannabis for the for the treatment of their pain. Neuropathic pain is on the list. But if it's justifiable they're allowed to possess in use the substance as part of their strategy for managing their condition in competition if need see So paralympian really good example of where these elite athletes are using a sub drugs like cannabis cabinets to help them manage their pain so they can perform of. That was great. And i know you're busy. Guide we really appreciate the time that you've given us on this fascinating who who doesn't like talking about the olympics thanks. Was there anything else. That i missed anything else. You were hoping that talk about that. You really want to get out to to the audience about at abyss and elite athletes other than just to reinforce the idea that the the discussions that we're having Changing regulations about cannabis clearly the. Us is a huge part of this conversation. It's still federally illegal in the us until that changes these kinds of issues like sha carry in us drug associations coming down hard on athletes. Those conversations are going to continue to happen until that. Us regulatory approach changes so very much looking forward to seeing some improving more rational drug policy coming from the us also Regarding products for people who are using cd which is perfectly allowable. Now there's no job. No prohibition against that but a number of products are made us for cbd products that still contain thc haven't been regulated that been properly tested chattan. We know that a number of cd products contain thc until those products are properly regulated improperly monitored. There's always that risk that somebody does take t- t- who's actually not even intending to so i think good policy good regulation All of this speaks to the importance of that. It affects all of us. It also affects the athletes that we enjoy watching and that we some of us aspire to be like so.

But how how bad asses at that like you have a move to moves that are named after you. Yes but this is where we run into problem as gymnastics fans as we are. which is. We don't know what we're watching when we it right. It'd be sick if they just had an event where the judges were just normal people. That never seen gymnastics before and so they just judge things off how bad ass they look. Yes because really. That's what the sport should be about. Wow that's cool that's all you that's all you need coupon and you win. Yeah hank what was the magic tweet. You were gonna read the palinka one. Yeah it was so good. He's doing to read it. Yeah i don't. I honestly don't think for a minute there. I thought that magic maybe self aware. But then i read his whole time line and he was doing a breakdown of all the playoffs and in the middle of it. He said Lakers gm rob. Pelinka has a lot to work a lot of work to do this summer. Because a lotta lakers did not perform well during the series against the phoenix suns. That's actually like the most boring recap of of the series that you could potentially stacey. Let me ask you this. If you're lebron james do you think that maybe he could be talking about you. i don't know maybe lebron james you think that but he magic's tweets like he. He really is putting effort. I did we hear someone told us that. He he doesn't tweet. He tax his tweets to someone else said that which actually now makes so much sense like the whole thing makes perfect sense that they are they do read is text messages What if someone's like. Hey magic what do you think about like what i think. If you read magic tweet tweets. There's a prompt that were missing like someone taxi magic and was like his twitter said. Hey magic like what do you think about rob pelinka. Like what does he do. Does he have a lot to do. And he's like leakers. Gm rob pelinka has a lot of work to do this summer because a lot of leakers do not perform well during the series against phoenix suns. Deaths kind of fascinating. Because you could. You could the person's like treating it like it's a post game press conference right and it's their job to like reach out to magic magic. Still feels like he's getting interviewed right. What if it was somebody on the lakers. That was actually transcribing these and using his voice to send subtle behind the back. Like subterfuge messages. I just wonder if there's if you have this setup where you someone and say hey. Can you tweet this for me. They're probably follow of texts being like. Hey that won't do and does the person like yo. It's poppin like love this road pulling stuff. That's hot hot. Take by you magic or do you think he tells them the truth. You sound like a robot and everyone's mocking you. I think it's it's a person so it's got to be someone with an agenda. Yeah yeah so i mean. They're probably getting paid way too much money to just be magic. I will magic. If you're listening to this. I will do the job for free for the love of the game or the love of the game. I will tweet anything that you text me and i will. I will always be on call. I think that we could probably just create magic. Johnson's voice replicated pretty easily. I've never done the. I the only time i've ever switched my handle and tried to do people was i. Did it with magic. Johnson and i change my twitter profile and i tweeted something and it got like it was the only time i could ever get everyone because he is a parody of himself..
