A busy day here at Fight Opinion headquarters.
Something shady at CSAC or the lab they use. If I used marijuana I would admit to it or be quiet and let this die. As everyone around me knows I don’t, so it becomes a question of whether there is incompetence or corruption going on. When I was told I tested positive last year I asked for a retest and a hearing and offered to pay for a DNA test to prove that the urine was not mine and they had made a mistake (if the retest came back positive).
Armando Garcia told me not to worry about it and that it would be expunged from my record since I was not planning on fighting again. He specifically asked me never to bring this up again and that he doesn’t ever want to see this brought up on the internet by anyone. I never had a hearing or had to pay a fine as is mandatory for everyone failing a drug test. Now over a year later this comes up.
In affect this made me guilty without being afforded the due process that everyone else gets when they test positive for a banned substance.
