Cannabis to remain banned by World Anti-Doping Agency

Yahoo Finance anchors discuss a report that the World Anti-Doping Agency will keep cannabis on its list of prohibited substances.

Video Transcript

JARED BLIKRE: We've got a move here. The World Anti-Doping Agency is expected to keep its cannabis on its list of prohibited substances for 2023. The agency oversees drug testing for the Olympics and other sports. And last year, it agreed to review the status of cannabis following controversy around the suspension of Richardson from the Tokyo Olympics. We all know that case. The World Anti-Doping Agency's executive committee will be asked to approve the final version of the list in its September 23 meeting. And that's all the time we have, guys. I just-- oh, go ahead.

BRAD SMITH: This is dumb. I'm sorry. They need to just look across all of the different places where it is allowed, especially either in some of your recovery for different sports and athletes out there that have leaned into this, in states where it is also allowed, too. Federally, of course, you get into the larger complicated conversation there. But I think they need to actually listen to the athletes here. If you are going to continue to maintain so much of your prominence or dominance internationally because the agency oversees so many of the games, listen to the athletes more. Listen in to how they're recovering.

JULIE HYMAN: OK, well, and it's not performance enhancing.

BRAD SMITH: It's not.
