It's nice to see someone from his position have the perspective that he does on the subject. As someone who uses it medicinally for multiple conditions, I agree 100% with him.

Sorry to hear that you and Mrs McCarthy both have conditions which require you to use marijuana, it is the lesser of all evils when it comes to medication. McCarthy makes some great points here

I agree with McCarthy. So long as the fighter is not high during their fight, there is nothing wrong with thc or cbd and there are quite a few health benefits from both for people with different conditions
