Three days ago we featured a statement from the legal team of Nick Diaz. In the statement they stated their case for seeking no disciplinary action against their client for his failed drug test following his most recent contest against Carlos Condit.
The very next day we released a statement from the Nevada State Attorney General’s office that denounced their argument and called Diaz a liar in the process.
In this continuing public battle, only one thing is certain, the Diaz camp and the State of Nevada are preparing for a heated legal battle.
In this most recent comment (via Yahoo!), Nicks attorney fires back at the State of Nevada and continues to make the grounds for their case public. Check it out:
“Nowhere in there does it say that the attending physician is prescribing marijuana. And so, for obvious reasons, before you speak and call someone a liar, you think you’d do a little bit of due diligence and understand what the Nevada law actually says. Nick has a prescription for marijuana in California. He has had a prescription for the last couple years, so it’s a legal drug for him. He has the prescription for ADHD [Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder], and he says it helps him. It’s not like you walk into the pharmacy and start looking around on the shelves and hope to pick up a bag of marijuana. That’s ridiculous. No reasonable person would believe that medical marijuana falls under the category of over the counter medications.”featured, MMA NEWS, Strikeforce, strikeforce news, ufc news
