When asked by a fan on his website how he feels about the news of WWE banning the use of Somas in the company, Jim Ross posted the following response: "I think that’s a great idea. Too many wrestlers took/take Somas recreationally, much like wrestlers used to smoke weed in the ’70s.
Prescription pill abuse is a huge enemy of all wrestlers who abuse them. Pain medicine, Somas, Ambien, and Xanax are an evil mixture especially when mixed with alcohol and taken in excess." You can read more at JRsBarBQ.com.
