TOKYO (AP) — The famous Olympic motto is Faster, Higher, Stronger. Next year in Tokyo, it could be shortened to only “Faster and Stronger.” Higher is out.
That was part of a warning on Tuesday from Toshiro Muto, the chief executive of the Tokyo Olympics.
Cannabis has been legalized in some parts of the world, but Muto reminded potential visitors to the games that the substance is against the law in Japan.
Muto said at a news conference that at least one member of the executive board brought up the issue at a meeting.
“There are countries and some regions around the world that have relaxed rules recently,” Muto said, speaking through an interpreter.
