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.

    Weed is great...but not 24/7. Home boy needs to take a break cuse it has appreaed to cause him and his younger brother to have speech impediments. How the fuck does weed cause it? I guess you really can smoke to much

    I think he is absolutley right. I personally take several bong rips after every time I train. Its the best thing ther is for recovery. It will speed up you metabolism and make you an over all better person. I do not take any other drugs (except a few beers every now and then), pills are not natural they will harm your soul. So all of you fucks who talk shit about stoners. Why dont you throw away your whole music collection, every piece of art you have ever seen, every poem and good book gone. These things would not be here if it wasnt for this wonderful plant. Thank you and please try to open your closed minds.

    I find it hilarious that weed would be considered a 'performance enhancing' drug. Anyone who gets high before a fight will probably tap quick so that they can go sit on their butt and get their snack on. Shamrock should be thanking Nick for smoking. Per Stockton, its not the ghetto that its made out to be, but it sure isn't Beverly Hills either.

    as someone who has dealt with the growing and cultivating process of marijuana, hence smoked a whole lot of marijuana...i can tell you , there's no way it is going to physically enhance your performance. unless your a skinny fuck who needs to gain some muscle... however it will induce positive thinking and/or make people philosophize and think "outside the box" , which this world lacks greatly. also it tends put one more in touch with there spirit in the all around it can be positive, if respected and smoked in moderation. that said i currently do not smoke marijuana, at least until April 20..

    If you are highly excitable, anything that allows focus and concentration could be a performance enhancer. Weed made me dig into a couch, but for someone like Diaz it might allow him to focus his energy rather than spaz out.

    nick doesn't say he 'wants' u to die of cancer if u smoke cigarettes. he said he 'wonders' if u would die, if u just smoked pure tobacco without all the additives in the tobacco plus in the paper they use to roll it up with. it's a good points actually. so many chemicals in that shit. i like nick. he's a freak of nature though. the most active pot head on the planet. i don't know many (see: ANY) potheads that can do triathlons, WHILE high. he enjoys that shit. i would keel over and die.

    As someone who regularly smokes marijuana and trains regularly (not professionally), I would have to agree with Nick. If you are a fat lazy bastard and all you do is sit around your house all day and smoke pot, smoking pot may be the most healthy thing you do in the day. That said, in my particular case and experience, marijuana does not inhibit lung capacity like smoking a cigarette would, and in fact, increases oxygen flow and mental focus. There have been MANY occasions when I've smoked pot, and then went to train and had a better day training than the day before when I was completely sober. I do not smoke cigarettes, I do not drink. I do enjoy working out whilst stoned though. It allows you to focus better on form, and it's entirely possible that the pain-reducing effect from the pot allows me to train harder than I normally would. In that way, I think that it could possibly be a "performance-enhancing" drug. However, I don't think that the pain reducing effect from marijuana is powerful enough to be even remotely considered along the lines of a vicodin or a percocet.

    It's great to see so many people that write as incoherently as Nick talks. Seriously though, Nick is great. It's good to see anyone, let alone a professional athlete, that actually says what their thinking, however wacked it may be.

    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.

    wtf. 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.

    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"

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
