The NSAC sounds like they’re ready to be reasonable about the Nick Diaz pot thing

If you were wondering what the Nevada State Athletic Commission thinks of Nick Diaz’s pot defense, this might give you a little clue of what’s to come:

Christopher Eccles, a Nevada deputy attorney general who represents the state athletic commission, referred telephone calls and email messages to public information officer Jennifer M. Lopez.

In a written statement, Lopez said, “Not only did Nick Diaz violate the law by testing positive for marijuana metabolites, but he also lied to the Commission on his Pre-Fight Questionnaire when he swore that he had not used any prescribed medications in two weeks before the fight.”

    If the guy’s retired, who gives a shit?

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    Even as a big Daiz fan I like that his big expensive legal defense ended up admitting his own fraud.  Eight days indeed.

    Nick Diaz DID NOT LIE on that form. There is no such thing as a prescription for marijuana. He doesn’t have one and neither does any other medical marijuana patient in the U.S. The drug is illegal under federal law, hence doctors can informally “recommend” its use, but they cannot prescribe it.

    The answer he gave was truthful, yet apparently his legal counsel overlooked the best defense against NSAC’s accusation.

    He’s facing a pretty hefty fine. 10’s of thousands kind of hefty. I’d fight too if I were him.

    Wonder if Diaz (or his manager) hired this attorney or if Zuffa did. From what I gather, the guy is a pretty well respected and well know lawyer. Smells like a Zuffa move to me.
