The World Anti-Doping Agency to review the status of cannabis prohibition for athletes | Drugs in sport

An advisory group from the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) will review whether cannabis should remain a banned substance, a move that comes after American track star Sha’Carri Richardson missed the Tokyo Games after testing positive.

The scientific review will begin next year, Wada said Tuesday. Cannabis is currently banned from competition and will remain in 2022, he added.

“Upon receipt of requests from various interested parties, the [executive committee] supported the decision of the List Expert Advisory Group to initiate a scientific review of the status of cannabis in 2022, ”a statement by Wada reads.

“Cannabis is currently banned from competition and will continue to be in 2022.”

Richardson tested positive for a chemical found in cannabis during the US Olympic track and field tests in June, erasing his test results. She was also punished with a one-month suspension.

The 21-year-old, who had been considered one of the top contenders in the 100 meters, said she used cannabis to help cope with the death of her mother.

The suspension drew a great deal of sympathy and called for a review of the anti-doping rules, including by the United States Anti-Doping Agency.
