    The guy avoided the stuff all his life to get to the Olympics. As far as he's concerned, he's in retirement. Time to party.

    Smoking anything is the worst thing any athlete can do. If it's true, it's clear he has no intentions on going to the next Olympics.

    Personally I don't think smoking pot is a big deal at all. I wouldn't want someone I hired to do it while they were at work, but if they did it on their own time at home after work I wouldn't care.

    If this was true, it would have been all over Sportscenter. Photoshop or lookalike, like the alien encounters and the three headed cows.

    Yeah its 100% true sadly. If you're going to smoke pot you should do it with friends. Not people who will sell photos. I mean its no big deal he smokes but he's a moron for getting caught. His career is over.

    I am surprised at the lack of national attn. Now that the Super Bowl is over, the spotlight may turn on him and his RooR.

    Doesn't seem like you have to be all that smart to be in the Olympics either.

    I think he isn't a moron for being "caught", I think people who actually care and make a problem out of it are the morons.

    Giving a damn about the private lives of celebrities, why would anyone?

    I agree with Dan for once, and my personal take on it is:

    No shit Michael Phelps hit the bong and no shit he has hit the bong before. He's from the USA right? He probably went to college, right? Like everyone is so clean and rock solid wholesome. Just because he's probably been on a Wheaties box doesn't mean his personal life has got to be family friendly.

    I'd rather hear of him smoking pot than drinking alcohol.

    I agree but sadly its the world we live in. I shouldn't have put himself in that situation. It like strapping a steak to your back and jumping into a lions cage.

    I'm a moron for living in a house of mirrors.

    amen
    I've been around potheads and alcoholics, and I can get along with potheads when they're stoned (I don't do drugs), but nobody can get along with people when they're drunk, not even other drunks.

    At your age, possibly not. But trust me, nothing is as fun as thousands of like minded drunks together. Drink, talk crap, break things, yell, piss against things and eventually pass out.

    I've never, ever seen anything good ever come out of driking, ever. I've seen a whole lot of bad come from it though. When I see people drinking alcohol, it just drops me into depression.

    If seeing someone drink makes you depressed I could probably make you commit suicide.
