The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) on Monday put action to the argument for the therapeutic use of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) and Marijuana.
The California State Athletic Commission voted on Monday to approve an amendment that allows therapeutic use exemptions (TUE) for combat sports’ athletes who use drugs currently banned by the state agency for medical purposes, including testosterone and marijuana.
To be adopted into state law, the amendment’s verbiage must now be reviewed and approved by the Department of Consumer Affairs and then the state’s Office of Administrative Law, a process that could take months or even years, if it passes at all. [SI]
This action puts the spotlight on the CSAC which becomes the first to address the TRT and Marijuana issues which have hit the fight industry as of late.
