CANNABIS – Banned In-Competition
Cannabis remains on the WADA Prohibited List for 2008. WADA has deemed that cannabinoids meet 2 of the 3 designated criteria: • performance enhancing.
• harmful to health.
• contrary to the spirit of sport. Traces of cannabis may be detected in a sports doping test many weeks after it was last taken.
"All medications need to be checked but if you are subject to one or more of
the following conditions it is likely that prohibited substances will be part of
the recommended treatment; asthma, severe hay fever or other allergic
reactions, diabetes, ADHD, hair loss, severe acne and other severe skin
Every time you require some kind of medical / surgical intervention you need to ensure that any substances administered are either permitted or are essential and qualify for a TUE, this includes dental surgery. Ensure that you inform every doctor or specialist who treats you of your status as an athlete and request that (if it is not already there) a note alerting all relevant people to that status be added to your ﬁ le.

all TUE's to their International Federation and meet any additional
requirements they may have. Please contact the relevant National
Sports Organisation to check the athlete's status and to ensure that
the correct forms are submitted.
THERAPEUTIC USE EXEMPTIONS (TUE)
Athletes, like all others, may have illnesses or conditions that require them
to take particular medications. If the medication an athlete is required to
take to treat an illness or condition happens to fall under the Prohibited List,
a Therapeutic Use Exemption may give that athlete the authorisation to take
the needed medicine.
WHAT ARE THE CRITERIA FOR GRANTING A TUE?
• The athlete would experience signiﬁ cant health problems without taking
the prohibited substance or method; • The therapeutic use of the substance would not produce signiﬁ cant enhancement of performance, and; • There is no reasonable therapeutic alternative to the use of the otherwise prohibited substance or method.

PLEASE NOTE THAT SUPPLEMENTS ARE TAKEN AT YOUR OWN RISK.
We advise all athletes to practice caution when considering taking supplements due to the following reason: • Supplements are not manufactured under the same rigorous standards as pharmaceuticals.
• Some supplements have been cross-contaminated with banned substances (some studies have indicated up to 25% have been contaminated).
• Labelling laws are not the same in all countries. This could mean some ingredients are not listed on the bottle.
• Manufacturing standards vary greatly around the world.
Some supplement manufacturers use phrases such as "pharmaceutical standards" or "approved by XXX sports league". This does not indicate that they are safe for use within sports. Drug Free Sport NZ cannot determine the status of any supplement product in sport. This includes all nutritional, dietary and sports supplements.
