Are you f*cking serious? How many stand-up comics are known to every MMA fan? How many stand-up comics get to call out referees on the spot for judgments? How many stand-up comics sway public opinion on mma on a daily basis? That stance is specious.
To quote Willy Thomas: If men define situations as real, they are real in their consequences.
You have a "stand-up comic" who has the ear of every influential person in MMA, as well as, realistically, policy makers, saying his "opinion" that marijuana is a PED. That will inevitably have some real life ramifications. Calling him out on it is completely justifiable. As some people (e.g., Shanks I believe) have argued here, Rogan isn't being the neutral guy he potentially should/could be. With that power comes responsibility (Spiderman, 2000). In terms of evidence, f*ck anecdotes: put up or shut up, Rogan.
