WADA to review cannabis rule after ban

Sha’Carri Richardson was deemed a contender for Tokyo 2020 gold in the women’s 100m but missed the Olympics after testing positive for cannabis and being handed a 30-day ban. The US sprinter’s case has resulted in the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) conducting a scientific review as to whether cannabis should remain a banned substance.

The timeline of Richardson’s ban meant she missed the 100m individual event at Tokyo 2020, while she was not selected for the 4x100m relay – which fell after her suspendion.
Richardson openly admitted to taking marijuana, telling NBC she took the drug to cope with the death of her biological mother.
“I want to take responsibility for my actions, I know what I did and what I’m not supposed to do,” she said.
“Everything I do comes naturally. There will never be a steroid attached to the name Sha’Carri Richardson. It was marijuana. Don’t judge me because I am human.”
