‎10.4.1 Skaters may not participate in a bout while under the influence of alcohol, narcotics, or illegal drugs.

As a reminder, skaters may absolutely not participate in a bout while impaired. Not only are they a danger to themselves, they are a danger to others. Medically necessary drugs would be considered different than recreational drugs that impair a skater.

While some will be celebrating a certain type of substance today, please be reminded that you may not partake before a bout. While the rules only specify bouts, no doubt your own league has their own regulations regarding practice as well. It should be understood that putting skates on anytime one is impaired is a bad idea, and is dangerous to anyone involved.
