Right before our very eyes Nick Diaz is becoming a medical marijuana icon. Thanks to a Nevada Athletic Commission power trip and the ensuing White House petition, Nick Diaz’s face turn is in full effect. The MMA world is a better place if Diaz is chilling inside it.
Diaz is also always willing to talk about his cannabis use and will advocate for the legalization as well as the benefits of marijuana
From a new interview with High Times, Diaz discusses his regular cannabis routine.
“If I’m at home and I’m training—doing my same things every day—then I’m definitely going to want to use cannabis. It’s gonna help. I’m trying to stay focused on what I’m doing. I don’t want a whole lot of things going on—people to call back, or text messages or whatever. I chill out, relax a little bit, and then I don’t have those issues. If I’m going to train all day, when I get done, I’m gonna want to smoke. If I have to go and train all day, before I go, I’m gonna want to smoke. If I wake up in the morning and feel beat to shit, and it’s going to take me forever to wake up, I smoke some weed and I wake right up. Then I have breakfast and I go do a workout.”
Before his suspension from the NAC runs its course in early August, Diaz has bidded his time with training, working out, High Times interviews, and apparently chilling in Las Vegas. This new behind the scenes video footage shows Diaz being Diaz but in gentlemanly sort of way. Nick Diaz always holds the door open for women because being polite is what’s up.
