Recently, MMA fighter Nick Diaz was suspended from the UFC for testing positive for marijuana. In 2015, when pot is legal in a handful of states already, that seems like a pretty steep punishment for a talented fighter in his prime. Five years is a LONG time and can potentially rob a fighter of his best years. Superstar Ronda Rousey publicly agreed with the absurdity of the suspension in a recent press conference in Australia.

It’s rare that an athlete will be so honest with his or her opinion. In an arena where they’re taught to give the stereotypical, cookie-cutter response about teamwork and thanking God and never saying anything out of line, its refreshing to see someone who just flat out says what they want. It’s especially refreshing when that opinion is such a popular one. One thing is for certain, Ronda Rousey just won over every single weed-smoker. I didn’t think it was possible for her to be more likeable or popular, but she just out-did herself.
