  • Richardson, an American sprinter, is subject to an anti-doping program that is actually competent
  • Russia’s anti-doping agency ‘can’t be trusted to do the right thing’
  • Richardson tested positive for THC and was banned in a span of nine days

BEIJING – The International Olympic Committee is correct in saying there are differences between the cases of Sha’Carri Richardson and Kamila Valieva.

Richardson is subject to an anti-doping program that is actually competent, designed and operated with the sole intention of keeping sport clean. Valieva is … not.

Reports of armed robberies at cannabis dispensaries like Hynes’ have nearly doubled in the first quarter of this year compared with all of last year, according to data maintained by the Craft Cannabis Coalition. The group, which represents more than 50 stores in Washington, has recorded more than 65 armed robberies so far this year, compared with 35 in 2021 and 29 in 2020.
