Heres my question on this whole Marijuana debate... I have heard of an awful lot of people who have used marijuana on limited occasions to just relax and ease their mind rather than getting all jacked up by it.

I don't smoke pot and I certainly don't think any athletes should, but if I knew the vaulter I was competing against was a big pothead, I definitely would not feel like they had gained an advantage.

Drug Screening for Athletes

I did a quick search of the forums and didn't come up with much, so I'll pose this question to you all. Drug Screenings, manditory, random, or big title winners only? The reason why I've added illigal drugs into the polling questions is because I see the use of illigal drugs (like marajuana, etc.) b...

yeah I'd definatly go with a 14'6" in that case, and I'd look into getting one probably just a hair too big for him right now, like a 14'6" 165 just to be safe. once he starts inching his grip up he should be on bigger and longer poles anyway, so a 165 won't bee too small for a while at le...
