Takagenji was caught smoking weed, after someone said something on the 17th. and he was tested positive. At first he said it was oil, but then admitted to smoking on a road next to their Osaka lodgings. He's at home for the moment but his banishment is imminent, as he never was a role model rikishi. He will probably go the way his brothers went a few years back, that is, getting kicked out of sumo. Weed smoking is a total no-no in Japan.
