The World Anti-Doping Agency is to review whether cannabis should remain on the prohibited list after American sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson missed the Tokyo Olympic Games having been banned for testing positive for the substance.

WADA said late Tuesday its executive committee “following receipt of requests from a number of stakeholders,” had endorsed the decision of the List Expert Advisory Group to initiate in 2022 a scientific review of the status of cannabis.”

However, it clarified “cannabis is currently prohibited in competition and will continue to be in 2022.”

Richardson won the 100 metres at the US Olympic trials but was later disqualified and banned for 30 days after her positive test.

The positive impact of cannabis on athletes is disputed with the German Institute for Biochemistry in Cologne saying it would not improve sporting performance but could encourage risk taking in certain sports.
