    Man smokes weed. Man wins 8 gold medals.

    The sport of swimming could kick him out just say as pro football could if he were a pro football guy. Either way the endorsements are gone.

    Inductive Reasoning:

    Michael Phelps has won a trillion gold medals.
    Michael Phelps has been caught smoking weed.
    There, for Smoking weed wins a trillion gold medals.

    It was either that or concluding something like:
    Michael Phelps is part aquatic-beast.
    Michael Phelps smokes weed.
    Aquatic-Beasts smoke weed.

    All of them. You don't keep a million dollars unless you are risky as hell.

    I agree.


    I do agree its stupid that society's view on Mary Jane has created this condition. I don't think it's any reason to lose respect for the guy.
    It's not society's view that the issue here. It's that weed is illegal, and he's breaking the law. Whether or not we agree with law isn't exactly relevant.

    Look, I have to look at this 2 completely different ways. As a former party girl, I see no issue with anyone smoking weed. It's a mellow drug. But also as a former partier, I knew it was illegal, so I kept it hidden. I wasn't stupid enough to allow myself to get kicked out of school smoking dope in front of some dingdong with a camera. Have some sense, people!

    As a mom, I'm a little disgusted in Michael Phelps. Save your smoking for when you're not the hottest athlete in the rag sheets right now. My son is a budding swimmer, and at the suggestion of his coach, I had him follow Michael Phelps. I don't want my kid to know about this indescretion. I don't want my kid to think you can suck off a bong & still be an athletic giant because in reality, it doesn't really work that way. I say this as someone who use to get stoned before working out. Ouch! The heart racing was awful. It's a good thing I quit working out. lol

    So I am torn. I don't think smoking weed is horrible, but I think people who are role models (and make millions hawking goods as role models) should clean up their acts for the time they have in the spotlight.
