American judoka Nick Delpopo was disqualified from the Olympics today after a drug test he took on July 30th came back positive for cannabis use, according to the Daily Mail. Delpopo had already competed in the men’s 73-kilogram division judo event, and finished seventh. 

Obviously, Delpopo won’t have to give a medal back, but his disqualification means that all records of his participation will be rescinded. 

Delpopo is claiming he inadvertently ate the marijuana, which had been combined with other food.
