“The World Anti-Doping Agency has indicated that it will consider possibly removing marijuana from its list of banned substances for athletes. The global sport body, which has long listed cannabis on its banned substances list, announced on Tuesday that it instructed an advisory committee to determine whether to keep pot on the list after 2022. … Marijuana remains on WADA’s banned substances list although the substance is legal in a number of U.S. states.” (09/15/21)
