In my experience, marijuana is an inhibitor. I never understood how weed could be a performance enhancer when it makes you slow and stupid. When Nick Diaz popped for weed after he fought Gomi, the argument was that it made him impervious to pain. Maybe, but it certainly doesn’t help motor skills. So, Nate Diaz shadow boxing and smoking a joint at the same time makes no sense to me.
Back when I was young, if I smoked weed, I was done; For about three weeks. I never understood how some of my friends could smoke and then go surfing. The concept of getting high and then trying to focus or be coordinated was always very foreign to me. However, some people seem to be able to deal with it and even more so, excel.
The Diaz Brothers have proven time and again that they are swimming in that pool. Watching this video, I feel like I’m about to start wheezing. Meanwhile, Nate hits the joint in stride with his shadow boxing like he is drinking water to combat dehydration.
