Dr. Margaret Goodman on Jon Jones Cocaine Controversy 


Regarding the discussion around the Jon Jones drug use controversy, Dr. Margaret Goodman, the President and Board Chairman of the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA), confirmed to me by e-mail that the WADA prohibited list for OOC (out-of-competition) testing does not include cocaine. However, VADA does include cocaine, as they do not have a specific OOC protocol.

She wrote: "Any fighter who had a drug problem should not be declared fit to compete. Cocaine is a dangerous drug. Putting fighter safety first means just that! A fighter who has to go into rehab for a condition determined before the fight needs attention--not a high profile fight. Plus the risks in training on cocaine are great and can't be ignored."
