    It's None of My Concern.

    I don't know what the big deal is with him anyway. He swims.  Great, so do sharks. Everyone gets a little wild at some point.

    Who Doesn't?

    Give the dude a break. He can kick your ***. And whoever called the police probably smokes, but gets made fun of in the circle because he coughs the most. Sometimes the world is dicks.

    Smoke.............

    Weed Is Not Bad

    Instead of so many ppl going up in arms over this, maybe they can look at it from another perspective. Hey, this guy kicks *** and dedicated his life to being the best he can be. And he is the best. And he smokes pot. It can happen, it does happen, and those who believe the...

    #1 He Is So Fine Does It Matter!?

    Wow! to me pot isn't even consitered a drug, but almost a under drug. What true affects does it have, ask the logical question, does it kill, like drunk drivers, does it kill like overdoses. Overdoses kinda sums it up for what the rest of the drugs are capable of doing.

    Still a Fan

    It doesn't change my opinion of him.  He's still one of my favorite athletes and one of the best athletes in the world. I'm sure he regrets putting himself in that situation.  It wasn't the best idea to publicly smoke in front of college kids - some that he barely...

    What About Cigarettes...?

    It has been scientifically proven that tobacco products are more harmful than weed. Why is it a big deal if other athletes smoke or dip tobacco? It's just because weed is illegal. There is no logic here.

    I think he's old enough to make his own decisions. So what If he smokes? It's even safer than alcohol, or tobacco (although I know the safest choice is to not do these things). I think people just see weed as a gateway drug, and it turns people into life-less, unmotivated, zombie...
