    Who Does Care?!

    I don't live under a rock. I know that people do drugs. Heck, plenty of my friends do. It must be something in the air. At the end of the day, what someone does, like Michael Phelps.. when he is not training his *** off and representing his country... its up to him really...

    If the guy can win gold medals and break records then who in hell cares if he smokes pot! Everyone know pot is not that bad. The guy is young and succesful and now he's famous! Let the poor guy live it up!

    Bit of a Stretch....

    Buut. I was in Columbia when Michael Phelps was in Columbia (not for him, haha, I was visiting a friend). So, we were in the same city when he was smoking pot.  That sounded crazier in my head...

    It's His Life

    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...

    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...

    #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.

    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.

    He only celebrated an outstanding performance. Leave the guy alone. We have a tendency to put our nose in other peoples business. We all have our vice. Some smoke pot, some folks pray.
