Michael Phelps

So Michael Phelps is caught in a photo smoking a bong. I’m sorry, but I fail to see what part I should be caring about. If he was smoking pot, then it’s even more amazing that he won all those medals. Pot isn’t exactly a performance enhancing drug unless you’re in the Cheeto olympics. If a competitive eater gets caught with a bong backstage, yeah, I can see that being an unfair advantage, but not in a real sport.

I might also add that there are PLENTY of successful, upstanding Americans who have admitted to smoking pot. It’s not like he’s Amy Winehouse. He’s accomplished a lot and happens to have smoked some pot. Big deal. Leave the man alone.
