Watch a motorcycle racer lose his marijuana medicated mind

Dailies -



Unless you’re one of the half dozen or so people that follows AMA Pro Superbike racing, you probably haven’t heard of Johnny Rock Page. Hell, even those half dozen fans probably haven’t heard of him. But, anonymity doesn’t stop him from being a crazy ass motherfucker, as witnessed by the following press release in which he suspends himself from the series due to his rampant medical marijuana use. Don’t believe his own accusations? Don’t worry, there’s video.

Update: we’ve added the honorable Rock Page’s presidential campaign video.

The follow press release is unedited, appearing exactly as it was distributed:

Attention United States of America, first a BIG shout OUT and special thanks to my new inspiration Michael Phelps. It was great getting some hang time with you on the stage at the Labor Day Encore XS party. You and David Guetta were loaded with energy and poured it onto the audience, so cool!

Not sure if you got to meet Deadmau5, his eyes were jaded, he looked out of it, he’s the guy with that wild green Space Invader tattoo on his neck. Two hours before meeting Deadmau5, I just got through asking model, Marlow DeVonne what that guy looked like without his Deadmau5 helmet on, and then we run into him while were walking in with Paul Oakenfold, Orock Orock, and Kevin Collins my buddies, interesting time, lots of it! Anyhow, It was so cool getting some hang time with you, and sharing our incredible sport of Superbike racing in America. We would love to have you out as a guest, consider this your invite as the “word” will travel it’s way to you my friend. Sorry #79 Blake Young, all I had was this recent photo by Darin A. Smith.

Phelps, I’m so sorry to hear of all the scrutiny that you went through, it’s totally ridiculous, I’ll take the torch from here and we’ll see what America does with me, hear we go…

Continuing on, attention to, All PRO Athletes, AMA-PRO Racing Staff, David Atlas, Superbike Race Fans, ADR Racing, team owner David Anthony, my friends, sponsors and daughters Madison and Alexa who I have to report to and to all the people who believe in the God that gave us the ability to communicate, as we are doing now, can I get an “Amen”, thank you!

I am turning over this portion of my future Superbike Life & Style to the AMA and placing myself on indefinite suspension from the AMA for the use of weed during a tiny window of the race season.

Even though it’s medical weed, ya right, I’m guessing that I’m in violation according to the AMA-PRO guideline rules. For what ever it’s worth, I do have a medical legal card issued by the state of Arizona, I’m not sure what even that means to you or anyone? I have not had weed in my system prior to a race recently. I received my medical card last year around when I announced my retirement. With lot’s of careful research then experiencing it’s medical benefits first hand. May I respectfully plead the 5th and ask for my medical reasons to be held private, however weed seems to offer a lot of hope and cures to what I’m dealing with.

It’s actually quite a beautiful plant and I have to tell you, I’m blown away at the botany of it. Talk about a beautiful fun plant to grow, and learn about all of it’s various strands and benefits.

After learning so much about weed, and of course enjoying it’s various strands, all within the scope of my license, the rabbit hole kept pulling me in deeper as I connected with the plant that seems to be loaded with so much endless value. My curiosity became interested as I discovered it’s medicinal side and it’s insane massive controversies. I feel like my energy is in the center of it’s challenges trying to understand, so I tried, and got first hand involved and I guess I just decided to be a test pilot to see what would happen to me as I discovered for myself, the truth about weed as a Man of God, Family Man, Pro Athlete, and as some of you know I’m running for President of the United States of America as a fill in ballot for 2012.

On that note, I apologize and ask forgiveness from my fellow racers for the part that I guess may be unknown to Man that made it illegal in the first place that could potentially could cause harm. Anyone who feels I put them in arms way by having weed in my system, my apologies; it takes like 30 days to get out of from the day you take it. I’ve raced with several prescription drugs over the course of my career trying different things in my life to feel balanced, I’ve never felt pressure from prescription choices, until medical weed came along. I’ve never tried cocaine and I don’t sleep around anymore, as I am waiting to have sex If I ever marry again. I feel like I’m the best version of myself after being crushed to nothing and getting rebuilt by God, however I sure feel pulled in about four pieces and this letter needed to be written to keep in harmony with a good conscious as I’ve worked so hard to get to this point.

On that note, I’ll continue training, staying in shape, hoping to hear back publicly from the AMA in a timely manner with the goal of acceptance as I AM, a card carrying member. If anyone wants to voice, please feel to talk openly. I hope the World, the United States of America and the AMA who I absolutely love has room for a guy like me. I still want to race, however I don’t like being pulled in so many directions, the Federal and State division has my energy feeling torn inside, and now the ball is in your court as much of my career is in your hands.

In final, I couldn’t come to the New Jersey Superbike race feeling in good spirit, even thought I’m sure I could get fake pee, a wizzenator, or I’m sure I probably wouldn’t be tested. This is one of those moments where I just may want to crawl under a rock and die, sometimes this world sure is a confusing time live in with all it’s rules and regulations between Man and how he’s to live his life trying to move about as peaceful as possible during his lot of time, all while trying to make a difference and hope to live a life that counts in some small fashion. I mean this sincerely and in a Non-Suicidal way so none of you worry about me. I’m in a good place in life, thank you God!

With that being said, it was my biggest dream to be President of the United States of America and be an active MotoGP, World Superbike, or U.S. Superbike racer for 2013.

  • BrianZooom

    this totally sounds like he felt left out from the casting of the movie “Half Baked”, and is insanely trying to live up to it in some fractured way.

  • JTB

    WTF? lol

  • Glenngineer

    This kills the mind.

  • damien

    Best press release…ever!
    Hilarious stuff.

  • The Blue Rider

    Oh boy, another disciple of The Religion of Dope. How novel. “Hey guys, drugs are GRRRRRREAT!” Gee thanks, Sherlock Stoned… Voluntarily dropping out of an awesome job for… What, exactly?

    When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro!

      “May I respectfully plead the 5th and ask for my medical reasons to be held private, however weed seems to offer a lot of hope and cures to what I’m dealing with.”

      Presumably the undisclosed medical condition. Maybe he was suffering from low blood apathy levels.

  • Matthew Applin

    Oh JRP. LOL. I’ve shared a track with him at a few trackdays here in AZ.

    Always fast, but always weird.

  • Charlie

    Totally unfair Wes. Don’t perpetuate these myths. I’m 50 years old and have no connections and have been waiting patiently for the medicinal BS in CT. I have a variety of conditions that could be ameliorated. One bad apple shouldn’t help people in need like me get stoned. Do you have any idea how hard it is for a middle aged person to find some weed? Seriously, I can’t ask my daughters. Have some sympathy Wes!

    • Wes Siler

      This article is in no way intended as a negative comment on the legalization of marijuana.

      • Charlie

        I know, I was just hoping some of your nice readers could help me out

        • Case

          Huge laughs over here. That was awesome. And honest. Your daughters are probably a legitimate medical reason for a cannabis card. Kids give me anxiety.

    • pplassm

      Isn’t possession a $10 fine in MA?

      • damien

        It’s a $100 ticket in MA.

  • damien
  • Jimmie Davis

    Man those are wimpy plants.

  • Domenick

    WTF? He’s cutting down plants to transport and later, make cuttings with? Dude!

    He should have moved the plants whole, in their pots, THEN take clippings for clones. Looks to me like he just destroyed his entire crop.

    Maybe he should have stuck with the racing motorcycles thing.

  • Gene

    Well at least he’s straight up about it, not like Anthony Gobert.

    Gotta respect a man for that.

    • Chris

      Agreed. Considering the undeclared drinking / drugging by bike racers of yesteryear, this seems more responsible than crazy …?
      (A bit clownish, but why not? Sportsmen and women are entertainers …)

      What he’s probably concerned about is being involved in a crash, especially one that’s not his fault – then being accused of racing while stoned. Especially since his medical use is a matter of record.

      If another rider sustains serious injuries, and JRP is found to have residual THC in his system, I’m guessing he could be faced with an enormous lawsuit. Probably what he’s after is a ruling by the AMA about acceptable residual levels of THC. As JRP says, THC lingers in the body in detectable quantities, but hardly at levels that would affect your riding.

    Beats voting for the Green Party.

  • smoke4ndmears

    I proudly count myself as one of those half-dozen people. Some of the best circuit racing around happens in AMA.

  • Matt

    Make that 7 for AMA Pro racing. Was just at NJMP Sunday, thoroughly enjoyed it.

    • smoke4ndmears

      So was I! Did you sneak a seat on the Attack CRT bike or the 1190RS?

  • mugget

    Well… that was the most interesting press release I’ve read in quite a while! And running for President? Wow…
