WATCH: UFC Fighters Say Take Cannabis Off The Banned List

UFC 195 is a mixed martial arts fighting event happening tonight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Speaking at a Q&A session in advance of tonight's event, UFC fighter Michael Chiesa had a very simple answer to a question about what they'd like to see changed in the regulations that govern UFC.

"Take marijuana off the banned list," he said.

Rose Namajunas, currently ranked #3 in the UFC Strawweight division, was quick to back him up as well.

Right now, cannabis can only be legally purchased through dispensaries or online retailers, but that could change if a group representing corner stores across America gets its way. The lobbying arm of the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) is preparing to fight for the ability of their members to sell weed once it becomes federally legal in America. NACS doesn't have support for federal cannabis policy reform on their official agenda, but that doesn't mean they don't want a piece of the pie if the industry is legalized nationwide.
