Sha’Carri Richardson, Suspended Over Marijuana Asks Why Russian Skater Is Getting Free Weed Pass In Beijing

Marijuana Moment reports

A U.S. sprinter who was suspended from competing in the 2021 summer Olympics over a positive marijuana test is challenging the recent decision to allow a Russian skater to continue to participate in this month’s winter games despite the discovery that she’d tested positive for a banned performance enhancement drug.

Sha’Carri Richardson’s suspension last year drove an international conversation about the global sports policy barring Olympians from using cannabis, and it’s even prompted a scientific review of the policy by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

But now the runner is openly questioning why she faced serious consequences when Russian skater Kamila Valieva, who helped her team bring home gold in one race and is considered the favorite for a separate race, is being allowed to compete even after testing positive for a banned substance.

Richardson said on Monday that she was confused by the seeming double standard. She said she wanted to “get a solid answer on the difference of her situation and mines.”
