The point I never understood is why mary jane or hash (THC in general) is considered dopping... Dopping is supposed to make you take an advantage of some substance... but from THC? What would Phelps get from it? Red eyes before gettin' into the water? No way. They shouldn't ban pot.

No, the only circumstance pot is a performance-enhancing drug is when you're playing video games or making dday maps (this isn't from personal experience)

He isn't been suspended for doping abuse, but for his misbehaviour as a role model (by his own federation). The situation would have been different if he had used during the OS, then the International Federation probably would have prosecuted him.

Same with cyclist Tom Boonen, he used cocaine during a party but not prior to a race. So he wasn't suspended for doping abuse.

Michael Phelps is the fastest swimmer in the world. Michael Phelps has never smoked pot. You choose your case.

Thank You

I honestly feel very bad for the guy. After Christmas when all the sports channels were doing their "top 10 sports stories" of 2009 Phelps' olympic performance was rated far too low. I didn't follow his performance well, but I know the guy won tons of medals. And now this bs? What a joke, if the guy wants to smoke a little weed who gives a shit? If he was an alcoholic no one would care.

Thats weak mofo, especially coming from you.

People are free to be as big a dick as they want. These forums are a perfect example of that. I have respect for anyone in the lime-light who doesn't plant on a phony smile for the masses. (of course I nor anyone else can begrudge him making some money acting in commercials)

As for his diet mofo think about it this way. How many calories do you think the guy burns in one day of training? I'd bet its crap loads more than you and I would in a week. A month?

If we're going to start burning celebrities at the stake for their short-comings then lets be fair.

Who's forgotten about Mel Gibson's night of adultery, blind-drunkeness, resisting of arrest and ignorant racism and hate mongering? Everyone apparently.

Edit:

Thanks to Fark.com for this one
Naturally the Weekly World News does it's best to mention how this photo will kill Phelps' endorsement opportunities. Really? He got a DUI when he was 19, which is about 300 times worse than smoking weed, and that hasn't exactly hurt him.

Plus, he's 23, has 14-gold-medals, and he's an international celebrity. We should be glad the worst picture of Phelps out there is him hitting a bong, rather than him doing lines off of a hooker's back. Cut the man some slack.

Also, as for this "role model" horse crap, parents these days are for the most part useless and too willing to let others shape their child's mind. Parents are responsible for their children's idiocy up until they're of "legal" age (for lack of a better benchmark).

?

He's in jail? Been castrated? Besides people knowing he's smoking pot what exactly has happened to him? He lost a few endorsements? Shucks, he'll just have to live off whatever money is given to him by the government to make up for time spent training.

he was suspended from the US swim team which means hes not going to compete. for an athlete thats a pretty tough hit.

Weren't you the one saying that you felt bad for him a few posts back? :?

I don't know him. I don't know if he's a dick or not. I don't think smoking weed affects his performance or that it's even that scandalous. But I do know that after the Olympics a bunch of companies were willing to pay him $100 million to do some ads and be on good behaviour (be a role model) for the next 4 years. I find the fact that he might have pissed that all away amusing. If you were paid millions and millions of dollars to not smoke pot and get drunk in public for a couple years wouldn't you do it? And how big of a dumbass do you have to be to throw it all away for lack of self control?

If you are an Olympic champ and don't want to be a role model, fine. If you like the party life that's your business. But then don't accept all that money and get your picture on the Wheaties box or whatever. He was being paid (a fucking lot) to be a role model and that's the difference. That's why he deserves all the negative attention, lost contracts, suspensions, etc.

Maybe people got to change their minds about pot. I dont think that smoking that shit makes him the worst person in the world. He's the best swimmer (sp?) in the olympic history and if he smokes a joint he's a loser? That's like assume that if you smoke you can't be a valid person... and thats totally wrong. If people knew what their "role models" do at night they'd be scared.

Good role models are supposed to be squeaky clean, or at least only show that to the public. They don't get drunk, do drugs or even swear. What would you think of Obama if there was a video of him from last week smoking up and swearing in a drunken rant? It's not so much the fact that he was smoking as it is the professional, idealistic image that he should be maintaining. Especially if he's getting paid for it. ;[

hehe. I certainly have voiced my opinion on the use of Herb.
So...if anything...he is twarting the system. Oh..the irony. Marijuana IS a performance enhancing drug. btw....IMHO<>. Silly? Hey. But, should we all money hugry>? Maybe he's saisified. Maybe he wants to do want he wants.
Could be completely unrelated. Could be coincidence. But, i do not believe in coincidence. Maybe a hint of the truth about pot. Far reaching? Maybe not so bad...? etc. It's really personal choice and a hope that it's used rather than abused. Anyting can be a vehicle for success...really. But, to judge another for what they want to experience...that hurts no other...that's the question at hand.
I certainly would not want to be judged on my performance if that was known of me. Because as it stands right now...I am considered very professional and in high demand. What would change? Although illegal, I feel it's discriminatory to a point.
