1. CSMAS Explains Harm-Reduction Approach to Cannabinoids
“Two key takeaways from the 2022 Cannabis in Collegiate Athletics Summit, hosted by the NCAA Sport Science Institute, included agreement that cannabinoids are not a performance-enhancing substance and that moving to a campus-focused harm-reduction and education model could best help schools prevent, identify and manage problematic cannabinoid use.
This led the NCAA Committee on Competitive Safeguards and Medical Aspects of Sports to recommend in September that each of the three divisions adopt legislation to remove cannabinoids from the NCAA's list of banned substances.
Some critics of this recommendation question whether removing the substance from the banned list promotes or condones cannabinoid use, but committee members said that is not the case.”
