WWE has a very strict wellness policy when it comes to drugs. It recently came into effect at the end of January when Andrade was suspended for 30 days for violating the wellness policy.
However, one drug which WWE is quite lenient on is cannabis. Superstars are still punished for using it, but instead of a suspension, they’re handed a $2,500 fine according to the wellness policy.
Stone Cold isn’t a fan of cannabis, he’d probably much prefer a beer, but he did open up about his past experiences with the drug during a recent episode of the Steve Austin show with Rob Van Dam.
The Texas Rattlesnake said he used to go to Canada to get the drug for his friends who needed it. He also used it himself on a few occasions, but he didn’t enjoy it, as he got the uncontrollable giggles.
Austin said, via Wrestling Inc: "The few times that I did partake in that endeavour, and I partook in many other endeavours, but I really wasn't a THC guy.
“Like, when I would hit that stuff, man, it would slow me down to the point where I would say something and then I would think, 'man, did that sound dumb?' or if someone would cut a joke, I'd be like, processing it, and I might giggle and I might not.
“But then, there was one time when I was riding with a Hall of Famer and we stopped at a Burger King drive [thru] and we got the famous giggles!
“And we sat there at the damn ordering speaker for like eight minutes! Man, we were laughing our asses off and we never got the hamburgers! We finally just took off and it was great."
Your guess is as good as ours as to who the Hall of Famer might be, but it sounds like Stone Cold had a great evening at the Burger King drive-thru after an experience with cannabis.
