Recreational drugs

All illegal recreational drugs are banned in sport.  If you use them you’re taking a risk.  

Part of being an athlete involves respecting your body and your health and taking recreational drugs does not show this respect.  

Here’s some key points you need to be aware of about recreational drugs:

  • cannabis and all its synthetic forms is prohibited in-competition
  • other recreational drugs, including cocaine, BZP, and amphetamines are banned in-competition
  • cannabis and other drugs can be stored in the body for an extended period of time
  • passive inhalation of cannabis or other drugs is unlikely to result in a positive test, but you should try to avoid this if you can.
