Basically, pot use in boxing. Is it wrong or isn’t it? I’m a supporter of the legalization of marijuana. Should it be allowed for someone to use in boxing? If they want to train high, that’s their business. If they want to use the stuff on there down time, fine. But pot can make you lazy. That’s why this trainer is against it.

Deker Lankford's insight:

add your insight...

It’s an interesting question that the anchorwoman asks… Does it make something that less ethical more ethical if everyone is doing it? It’s easy to lose track of ethics when this happens.

What happened? The juice is what happened. Steroids.
Deker Lankford's insight:

add your insight...

This article sort of stuck out to me because it discusses Barry Bonds, Mark McGuire and other baseball players as a whole. Mark McGuire said he wished he never touched steroids. This, to me, is interesting. It shows just how profound these drugs are and how, once used, can throw an athlete in a downward spiral.

“Victor Conte believes that perhaps 50% of the top fighters are currently using some form of PEDs.” It’s a wonder why Floyd Mayweather has his suspicions on Manny Pacquiao.

Deker Lankford's insight:

By today’s standards, I wouldn’t consider this cheating. If you’re gaining an edge by using a substance that’s not banned in sports, than to me, it’s ethical. To me, it’s the same as caffeine, Gatorade,ect. I mean you would “come down” off these substances and be in worse shape than you were before.
