Why are we here

Why Are We Here

  • There are athletes that use every day

  • There are athletes that use throughout the season

  • There are athletes that use and play on game day

  • There are athletes that want to quit using

  • Marijuana use has become more prevalent than alcohol

  • Marijuana is easier to obtain

  • Marijuana is more difficult to detect – a person is less likely to get “caught” unless they actually have paraphernalia on them

  • Athletes do not perceive that marijuana “impairs” them or hampers their athletic performance

  • Alcohol is still a problem

  • Some athletes “pre-medicate” on game days

  • Other chemicals are being used as well

    • I’ll sign it and I’ll be good during the season but this spring break and summer I want to have some fun.

    • If I don’t sign it I’ll lose playing time.
