There has been a definite crackdown on marijuana usage amongst WWE wrestlers. A lot of them are unhappy about it and have been complaining in private, since despite the Wellness Policy being in place it is still okay to use pain pills with a prescription and alcohol is not even covered by it. Those two vices take a far higher toll than marijuana has done so far and many wrestlers feel that it is benign. However, those who have been repeatedly fined over it and have since been given warnings are now starting to turn to drink or pain pills instead, which has a greater destructive potential.
