If you have a TUE for medical use of marajuana can you ingest the weed legally as far as FINA/WADA are concerned? Academic question obviously.

Obviously, academic, Clive… I don’t see weed on the possible TUEs list but there may be a case for making it obligatory alongside the tea and biscuits in the sporting boardroom – think of all the suffering that might be alleviated, all the good that might emerge from the smoke of alternative thinking; an act of mercy, especially so at this time of year 🙂
