Defeat doesn't finish a man - quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits. - Richard Nixon
Interesting read. Thanks for sharing, hadn't seen that yet.

Why are they even testing for marijuana?
Especially if they have proven it doesn't give players an advantage...
My guess is, probably because it is still illegal, in most places. JMO. I personally, don't think it gives players any advantage, obviously.

My questions are:
Why test for any drugs that are not performance enhancing?
Possession of alcohol by minors is illegal. Should underage players be tested for alcohol?
Are players that live in states that allow medical MJ and have a prescription be exempt?
Will all schools now be required to have the same policy regarding how they test, when they test, who they test, retesting, and the punishment for positive results? (I believe that schools now develop their own policy or at least portions of their policy. I could be wrong about that?)
WOW! 5ng/ML is 1/3 the amount that triggers a positive in a standard gas chromatograph blood test you would take for a high liability job and 1/10 the amount required for a positive result on a piss test. That is truly insane. If we as a society will let a bus driver for an elementary school or a soldier, or a physician have up to 14ng/ml without suffering negative consequences, I think we can all agree this is way beyond stupid. I know they said they want to lower the punishments but seriously, 2nd hand can give you higher levels than they are testing for with these new standards. What a waste of time and potentially of good athletes. When are we as a society going to realize that you have no right to control what someone else does with their body, PERIOD? The NCAA has really lost their f***ing mind. First it’s the stupid new recruiting rules and now this.
Well said !
