The use of marijuana is legalized in the state of Washington, but Washington State head coach Mike Leach makes it clear how the use of the drug is viewed within his football program. He also says marijuana use has not been a problem for his football team.
“The marijuana rule has not been a problem for us,” Leach said in response to a question on a Reddit AMA chat. Leach went on to explain “It is illegal on our team and if we find anyone using marijuana, we will dismiss them from the team.”
Leach also shared his personal thought son the use of marijuana, whether it is legal or not.
“With all do respect to those who enjoy marijuana, I believe that it is very counter-productive to having the best focused and most productive football team that I can have,” Leach said. “Any of our players or coaches interested in it will have to do it after they finish their time here!”
