Canadian Boxer Recieves 2 Year Ban For Sparking Up

According to a Canadian Press article Marc Bourassa, a boxer, was suspended after testing positive for marijuana use. Apparently it is still up in the air if Bourassa will be able to keep his recently won title for defeating Adam Trupish. Bourassa received a two year ban and had his federal funding stripped for life. The article also mentioned that another unnamed boxer also tested positive but received only a warning.

First of all why are they testing for marijuana use anyways, sure it is an illegal substance, but as far as I know it does not enhance athletic ability in any way, if anything it is detrimental to athletic ability. Then there is the issue of one boxer getting a warning and another getting a harsh punishment. What is the point of having rules if you are only going to selectively enforce them? Granted it seems hypocritical of me to say such a thing when I have said before that anytime an officer of the law does not enforce the marijuana laws that it is a good thing, but still this is silly. Bourassa should fight this.
