I just noticed this on the IBO's rules on there website. Watch out you my be pulled aside by big Ken to do a pee test at your next IBO shoot :ROFLMAO:

IBO rule
g. Using performance enhancing drugs - Recognizing the IBO / 3-DI affiliation with FITA; the IBO is developing a substance abuse policy. We may be recognizing guidelines along the same structure as those utilized by FITA in their International competitions. Be advised, these guidelines may be implemented in the near future and may come into use with no further warning than this advisory.

Is this a joke? Or does FITA really do this and how does it work?

I know and have personally seen many many people take and use pain killers and other drugs like this to calm the nerves during a 3D shoot or other fairly large sanctioned shoot. Not that its a performance enhancer, but I can't imagine the number of shooters at the pro/elite level that have some THC in their bloodstream as well...........there are more than you think :zip: .
