  • 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

  • Alcohol is still a problem
  • Some athletes “pre-medicate” on game days
  • Other chemicals are being used as well
