Nick Diaz: Everyone Is On Drugs…Look Around


Nick Diaz participated in yesterday’s Strikeforce conference call and thank God someone was savvy enough to ask him a question about weed and then get out of the way and let him go.  There’s nothing quite like a good, completely insane Nick Diaz rant to really make you stop and realize that absolutely everybody, everywhere is on drugs, or else they’re an alcoholic.  I didn’t even think about it until Nick said it.

Here are some other nuggets of wisdom to come out of Diaz’s mouth in this one answer to one question about how smoking weed is different than taking pain pills:

– The blood flow stimulated by coughing when you smoke weed might be the healthiest thing you do all day…if you are fat or have cancer.
– He’s not a fucking doctor or scientist.
– He has a lot of friends who do a lot of drugs.
– If you smoke cigarettes, Nick hopes you die of cancer.  He really does.

We don’t get a chance to hear the follow-up question after this epic answer, but one assumes it was, “Nick, are you high right now?”

I really love that you can hear someone, hopefully on Diaz’s end of the phone, laughing hysterically during this answer.  That’s the best thing you can do when Diaz goes off like this.  Just sit back and enjoy the ride.

So honestly, GVD, Alcohol is any better? It's legal, but ten times more destructive than weed could ever be. Is it the true 'gateway' drug? I would say more than any other substance, people experiment with booze before trying weed, coke, etc. Personally, I feed my little ones tranquilizers so they keep off my weed stash, but that's to counteract the Riddlin my docs got them on(ADD sucks), so who am I to talk....I'm going to go smoke a b-hit and think about it.

You have no idea what you are talking about.

Which makes it worse because you are trying to weigh someone else's life by your seriously handicapped version.

oh one more thing to the ppl who think marijuana gives cancer .Marijuana does not give u cancer of any kind it is not good for your lungs but it does NOT give u or contain cancer causing agents ,but it can give u bronchitis which isnt good but its not cancer and no kind of smoke is good for the lungs but cigarette smoke i find is way more harmful for the lungs then marijuana smoke. And listen im not saying smoke pot cause it really isnt for everybody ,but dont try to talk about a subject u clearly know nothing about and dont misinform ppl with information thats not true.

gvd marijuana isnt really a gateway drug ,ppl get the misconception that it is .Truth is that ppl who have gotten onto harder drugs probably wouldve been doing those drugs if marijuana never existed. You dont really smoke a joint and go hey lets get some blow just doesnt happen very often. If u wanna talk about a gateway drug lets talk about alcohol it impairs ur judgement to an extent that marijuana never could .It also gives you the courage and carelessness to do stupid ass shit that u would never do sober or stoned on some good weed.

Also ,weed doesnt get laced very often .theres no need to lace it if ur growing good weed also its not very practical when most of the weed going around is from pure cash croppers who wouldnt waste the extra money ,time and energy to lace ur weed when they can already unload it at 2000$ plus per pound .U might find some asshole or 2 doing it but its very very rare .Around here ppl wanna sell u good ,tasty enjoyable weed . weed is becoming harder and harder to get ,theres lots of smokers and not enough growers so if u have weed it will sell u dont need to lace it.
gvd- April 3, 2009 at 10:52 pm
yes and the fact that dealers will lace your shit to make you more addicted to it with cocaine meth heroin etc etc
gvd- April 3, 2009 at 10:51 pm
lol everyone who's arguing that weed is GOOD for you... what a fucking joke. I've seen enough lives screwed up from gateway shit. You just THINK it's good for you trust me up until you start smoking it every day and take a bong rip every 15 minutes and realize how fucked you're getting and either fuck your life up or start doing harder drugs to get that initial high back. fucking joke...

yes marijuana does effect ppl differently, but not all marijuana is the same .There is types of marijuana that will help some ppl get energy ,and there also types of marijuana that help with other stuff like helping u go to sleep or eat .Theres also cross breeds that have a variation of both. Right now though the bud i got is a medicinal kush and it makes u very tired and hungry and is good for pain .it does not have any performance enhancing abilities no matter who smokes it ,but a few weeks ago i had this shit (unknown strain) that would keep me up all night.I like to smoke when i get really tired just to have an extra nice sleep but i would smoke this shit when i was tired and it would wake me right up and give me more energy. So now u know not all marijuana is the same there are thousands and thousands of cross breeds and variations, that all produce sometimes similar and sometimes not similar highs.

maxwell is right on with the harmful effects of smoking can still get lung, throat, mouth, tongue cancer from just smoking pot and nothing else...smoking ANYTHING is harmful to the body...investing in a good vaporizer or learning to cook with marijuana will help you get to where you want to be without all the nasty smoke and tar...marijuana definitely has beneficial and legitimate medical usage but the facts are most people who smoke pot abuse the drug...and some of the "pro-marijuana" viewpoints here are so beyond ridiculous they make my head hurt. I guess i'll go take a few advil and hope they don't "harm my soul"

Stockton is a total shit hole. I love that the Diaz's are from there. It's perfect. They are great. Nick is going to DO WORK on Shamrock and I am going to love it.

He didnt' say that. He said he WONDERS if people would die of cancer if they smoked STRAIGHT tabacco instead of what is in cigarettes

also claiming all art and literature was made by stoners is the stupidest fucking thing i've ever heard. And thanks for that compelling medical advice! If you could show me the peer-reviewed papers regarding this soul-hurting effect that would be awesome. thx.

@ Matt

No joke

marijuana contains more tar than cigarettes, although a lot less of the other nasty chemicals. smoking weed is not healthy, in any way. It coats your throat and (more importantly) lungs with nasty ass tar and other plant resins, reducing the effectiveness of your lungs. It doesn't matter how much it increases blood flow if that blood is severely depleted of oxygen. stfu and don't try and argue this retarded point. Now, I don't doubt that thc and cannabinoids can have many beneficial effects, but SMOKING ANYTHING IS HARMFUL.

p.s. I smoke weed and cigarettes.

Marijuana, like any drug, affects different people in different ways. From what I can tell, someone with anxiety problems will have heightened anxiety most of the time from smoking; sometimes, though, it may mellow them out.

Joe Rogan has said that weed can help focus, for instance on jits, and help think of moves/counters etc. that you wouldn't otherwise think of. Keep in mind Eddie Bravo, Rogan's friend and a known stoner, is one of the most creative jits guys out there.

I agree with C-Bus Allstar. I used to smoke before workouts. I found it hard to start, but once I did I would focus more and wouldn't want to stop.

Myself, I don't smoke anymore, its something I grew out of. But I don't hate on it. I believe it is beneficial to some. The ones that swear by it, though, and absolutely have to have it or they freak out, are the ones that should leave it alone imo.
Hairy mouse- April 3, 2009 at 12:46 pm
WTF are you trying to say? Do you sprecken ze englais? First you contradict yourself by saying that Nick is less of an idiot, but also still as fuckin stupid. Then following that you say something about wanting to be with them 2 dumb fucks headbutting themselves to death. Well sounds like you've got a good headstart on that!! :D

PS Fedor sucks, sucks balls. Stupid ignoramous.

Since when everyone who does drugs smoke cigarettes? I smoke a lot of weed but I never even consider cigarettes.
