Sha’Carri Richardson Cops to Failed Drug Test
Weeks before she was to compete in the Olympics in Tokyo, star athlete Sha’Carri Richards suffered a devastating blow. Her most recent drug test came back positive for THC. In addition to the disqualification from the 100-meter sprint, Sha’Carri faces a one-month suspension. There is a chance she could compete in other track and field Olympic events, but it’s unclear if she will.
Per CNN, Sha’Carri admitted that she “consumed marijuana.” She appeared on the Today show earlier this week to explain and take responsibility. While Sha’Carri wasn’t excusing using the banned substance, she said that she recently found out her bio mom died and used marijuana to help process her grief.

Fans of the Roloff family know that Isabel Roloff is extremely outspoken. She married Little People, Big World alum Jacob Roloff in 2019.

In one slide, she reveals that she and Jacob use cannabis sometimes. Furthermore, Isabel’s mother used it during her chemo treatments. Isabel further reveals that Jacob got his wisdom teeth out and is using cannabis instead of narcotics.
As for Isabel, she says that cannabis can help with her anxiety.
