Life of a Student Athlete: Tip of the Week

Tip: Choose not to use marijuana as it impacts your health, safety and potential for academic and athletic success.

Marijuana compromises judgment and affects many other skills necessary to be a proficient athlete. These skills include alertness, concentration, coordination and reaction time.

It also causes shortness of breath 3 times more often than nonsmokers- nicotine narrows blood vessels and makes your heart work harder than it should.
