How sad is it that when I saw the headline of “Cubs’ Soto tested positive for marijuana” on ESPN I was relieved? I mean, it’s not a performance enhancing drug right?
What is even more sad is the fact that apparently Major League Baseball doesn’t care if it’s players use other illegal drugs just as long as it isn’t a PED. According to the article:
MLB does not regularly test for marijuana since it’s not considered a performance-enhancing drug, according to a players association spokesman interviewed by Levine.
Great. Another proud day for Major League Baseball.
