Either UFC lightweight Nate Diaz isn’t exactly up to speed on the differences between California and Texas when it comes to the legality of marijuana use, or, more likely, he just doesn’t give a shit.
On hand in Austin, Texas, to take in UFC Fight Night 126 on Sunday, Diaz whipped out a joint and a lighter when the camera fell on him, threatening to light up before the camera pulled away.

I’m not sure what was better between Nate Diaz wit a joint in his mouth or the Black Beast telling his ol’ lady that tn he’s “going deep!”#UFCAustin

But perhaps no one enjoyed the moment more than the kids sitting behind him.

While recreational marijuana use is now legal in Diaz’s native California, Texas still has a long way to go before Diaz or anyone can get high legally. According to the Associated Press, “A joint could still land you in jail in Texas.”
