Video: Nick Diaz smokes a giant blunt in new commercial for Futurola rolling paper

Why fight when you can smoke?

Nick Diaz, to the connoisseurs of cannabis, is living the dream.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight contender has been making the most of his mixed martial arts (MMA) fame, at least on the marijuana front, smoking daily to help offset the rigors of daily training.

Why not get paid for it?

Sure, there is the occasional recreational use (like this), and of course those instances where it would be rude to say no, but Diaz is out there hustling (so to speak) for a cause he believes in.


Naturally, all the glitters is not gold, and Diaz (26-9, 2 NC) has paid a hefty price (literally) for his plant-based exploits. In addition to his hefty fines, the wily Stockton striker has spent a significant amount of time — in his prime — on the sidelines.

And things aren’t getting any easier (for anyone), at least on the drug-testing front.
