great interview, all my musical heroes just about, were stoners, I couldn't be high and mighty about the ganga.
For the record, I've trained many times under green...it helps me relax, but isn't all good...my stamina suffers a bit. who cares, it's all fun.

Is smoking pot not bad for training? I mainly stay away from drugs due to the effects I think they will have on my health (not to mention the legal issues).
What's the deal with smoking then training?

He's brother talks like he has a mild form of down syndrome and Nick isn't much better.
While I've nothing against pot, some people need all the brain cells they've got.

haha, pot is generally bad for training, but it can help some people loosen up (their muscles and mindset). Most people should never consider it during training. The herb has different effects on different people, and it won't help most...and can get someone hurt (dropping your guard to reach for a cookie)
Some people get zoned out, bad (read:ktfo), but some relax, and focus (and perhaps get a little hyper).
I figure, I'm not a competing fighter, and when I'm out, I'm often baked...if I'm likely to get into it (kungfufighting), it'll be when I'm stoned. If train the way you fight, fight the way you train, is true, or at least worthy of note, then I've got that covered.
That said, I'm not a slacker stoner, I'm a very busy guy (studio yesterday,tomorrow,sun,tues,wed,thurs) who enjoys it, and it carries over to when I train sometimes. Not for everyone though. I wouldn't recommend it for most.

I don't smoke before I got to the gym but I do afterwards. I'm also a network engineer and when I have to get focused and really relaxed and into my "routing groove" I like to smoke a bowl or two. I've been in IT most of my adult life and most of the people I hang out with do IT. Most of them are stoners also. Would I want airline pilots getting high while working? No. But I've found that it helps me and my fellow IT freaks to really get into whatever project we are working on. I'm also one of those people that believes you should be allowed to do anything you want to your OWN body. As long as you aren't hurting others or a serious danger to yourself fucking do it if you want. I'm always shocked that going out and getting hammered from drinking is more socially accepted than sitting in your buddies house smoking a joint and talking about whatever crazy **** comes to mind.
PS - Yeah I know I suck.

Pot kills brain cells, but what people don't realize is that it kills the weakest and slowest brain cells first, leaving only the most powerful and efficient ones to pass their genes on to the next generation. This is why people feel smarter after a few joints.

I agree with your Diaz for president! But I think he needs a VP that will get his agenda handled. You obviously have to go with Eddie Bravo on that one. Diaz/Bravo in 08! Free weed for everyone! Joe Rogan for secretary of state! USA executive branch BJJ/MMA FTW!

"Ladies and Gentlemen, good evening, I'm some douche anchor here to report: Young presidential hopeful, Mr Diaz, won the first in a series of presidential debates yesterday evening, with a rear naked choke, in the third round of questions. More to follow, and yes, Mr Romney did indeed **** himself, apparently.
Contrary to popular opinion, including Mr Romney's own, his **** does stink....."
