Matt Riddle doesn’t necessarily agree with the rules but understands that he must follow them. He will continue to stop using medical marijuana three weeks out from each fight, but he’ll continue to be a vocal advocate for reform.
Right now what they tell me is, ‘Our industry frowns upon it. You can’t use it. You can’t test positive for it, and right now even if you don’t test positive for THC and you test positive for metabolites, you still fail,'” Riddle explained to MMAjunkie.com Radio.
Matt has come under fire this past July when he failed a post drug screen after resting positive for marijuana metabolites. Riddle possesses a medical marijuana card in his home state of Nevada, but that did not matter to the Calgary Combative Sports Commission.
