Will Michael Phelps Bong Hits Makes His Gold Medals Go Up In Some?

Michael Phelps smoking pot Obama smoking
Golden boy Olympic swimming multi-gold medalist Micheal Phelps was photographed inhaling marijuana from a glass bong at a University Of South Carolina party in Columbia, South Caroline last November by England’s News of the World. Although not considered performance enhancers, the International Olympic Committee added marijuana and other social drugs to its list of banned substances after Canadian snowboarder Ross Rebagliati tested positive for marijuana during the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics. Should 23 year old Phelps, who received 18 months criminal probation for driving while intoxicated (DUI) in 2004, test positive for the canibis, he could be banned from international swimming competitions, including the Olympics, for four years.

Meanwhile, though a positive drug test could derail the Olympian’s eligibility to add to his 14 Olympic medal count for the USA, an admission of using cocaine and a present day tobacco smoking habit didn’t prevent the other USA golden boy Barack Obama from taking the oath of office as US President.

    With those lungs of his, I would love to see him hit that in person. I bet he could clear a 10 foot bong. Who cares, the Olympics are over, he’s celebrating that fact that he’ll forever be in the WORLD HISTORY BOOKS. Give the guy a break. Alcohol is FAR worse for you than marijuana and you don’t see people going ape shit over him with a glass of Vodka in his hand. Oh well though, he’s got enough supporters and fans, and enough marijuana advocates on his side, if they do try to punish him it just might spark the beginning of the Tolerance of Peace and get the great green plant legalized finally.

    puff puff pass

  17. Ryan on May 17, 2009 9:03 pm

    So a guy who has an huge amount of Olympic gold medals smokes weed… so why the fuck is weed illegal? Can’t be too bad for you if one of the most extremely well conditioned athletes does it.

  18. Jeremy on May 18, 2009 2:09 pm

    Lets legalize, make america happy, and pull this sorry as country out of debt. Pot is illegal but yet still the largest cash crop around the world. Thank you mister Phelps.

  19. asdf on May 27, 2009 3:31 am

    It’s really such a shame that he smokes weed. That means he’ll never be able to finally achieve his dream of winning eight gold medals in one olympics, something that’s never been done before. He’s definitely just flushed his life away.

    Wait a second…

  20. kevin mazzella on June 1, 2009 12:07 am

    he was smoking weed and lots of people do it. normal ciggaretes are worse for you if u smok them alot he still young

  21. EasyRider on June 15, 2009 3:06 pm

    Maybe we should take all the people that think pot is evil and talk shit about M. Phelps and let them ride around with a drunk driver a little while, and then maybe they will get the point of how much worse alcohol is than smoking a little pot. I guarantee that alcohol kills more people a year than smokin’ pot—how many people do you know that have died from a weed overdose?

  22. Drew on June 16, 2009 8:25 pm

    Easy Rider- I agree. And you pass out before you could ever overdose on weed

  23. Badg on June 25, 2009 5:27 am

    who knows, he could have trained all life to have strong lungs and be the best swimmer. there wont be another time in his career to ever swim the way he did at the past olympics, so why not celebrate what you have and smoke weed once in a while. no biggy

  24. Maddy on June 28, 2009 7:08 pm

    UGH!!!!!!!!!!!! IT IS SOOOOOOOO STUPID THAT MICHAEL DID THAT~!

  25. rocket on July 14, 2009 11:58 pm

    PEOPLE! Marijuana would most likely pull the country out of a recession. Seriously, would the amount of deaths causes by the drug and it’s effects really be worth it all? I know so many people who have had their lives ruined because of marijuana. The problem with the drug is that it slows down reaction time making it harder for the necessary reaction to occur. Read up people, life is not all fun and games.

  26. Melissa on July 20, 2009 7:58 pm

    SERIOUSLY! I agree with rocket on this one..even if marijuana pulled the country out of a recession do we really want to be known in the world as the country that relies on drugs and alcohol to pull them out of hard times?? There is wayyy better ways to get through life then always going to drugs. I tried them for a while and ruined my life. But Micheal can do whatever he wants it’s his life and people should butt out.

  27. krystal on July 31, 2009 6:20 pm

    “The problem with the drug is that it slows down reaction time making it harder for the necessary reaction to occur. Read up people, life is not all fun and games”

    And alcohol doesn’t?

    YOU should read up… Marijuana was only prohibited to keep the immigration from Mexico into America. It mainly came up into America from Mexico and the government felt the only way to keep the immigration down was to make marijuana illegal.

    And as for myself, I’m an avid smoker of 11 years. I’m quite successful, despite what your judgmental disposition would allow you to believe.

    Looks like you need to pack a fat bowl and take a big rip to your brain… It could do your attitude and life some justice :)

  28. Andy on August 8, 2009 3:55 pm

    THIS IS YOUR BODY OF WEED, KIDS. LOOK WHAT A FAILURE YOU WILL BECOME.

    You think having all those gold medals is bad? Wait till you hear what other propaganda is being fed to you by all the industries profiting from cannabis prohibition.

    And to the guy who said weed slows you down, yeah it does, while your high. It ends there.

    Maybe it’s time the public looks up the facts about weed from sources that aren’t profiting from it’s prohibition.

  29. Andy on August 8, 2009 3:59 pm

    yeah, and guess what rocket?

    THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A SINGLE DEATH IN HISTORY DIRECTLY ASSOCIATED TO MARIJUANA USE.

    Alcohol is far more dangerous than marijuana.

  30. school girl on August 19, 2009 2:59 pm

    marijuana is a plant. it could absolutely save this country from debt so we should stop being so pig headed and legalize it. as for those people who say it ruins lives, your life is your business. what you did with it is your own choice. don’t blame the plant just because you happened to smoke at the time. take responsibility for yourself.

  31. matt on October 26, 2009 8:58 pm

    Technically alcohol is a drug too-and it also ruins people’s lives. And besides, marijuana is not going to ruin your life if you use it in moderation (same goes for alcohol).. and well, the people who do use it too much, haha well they are just funny to watch. And if it wasnt for the stoners, california would be dead.

  32. Iraqi Dinar on December 18, 2009 9:13 pm

    Do you think that if marijuana was legalized, more or less people would do it. Maybe I should say ABUSE it. There’s a fine line between the two- especially when we’re talking about marijuana.

  33. 420 on March 2, 2010 1:07 am

    rocket, you are so fucking ignorant, you know how many deaths have been caused directly due to marijuana use? ZERO, NOBODY HAS EVER DIED. it does not ruin lives. Crack, that shits fucked up. but not a little harmless weed.

  34. aubrey on April 26, 2010 3:40 pm

    omg i cant belive that

  35. Butterfki on November 1, 2010 4:44 am

    Melissa on July 20, 2009 7:58 pm
    Wow, so you and the Rocket guy are totally off base. First, marijuana is useful in ways besides the effects it can produce when ingested. Hemp can be used to make durable cloth and paper, medicines, and is even used in some cat, dog, and horse food. Did you know that the first AMerican Flag was made from Hemp fiber?? Different strains have different properties which make them useful to different industries. It is possibly one of the most profitable plants on the planet to date. SO besides the fact that marijuana users (typically smokers) make it a 300 billion dollar industry, when legalized it may be used for a whole array of things, not just getting high. Moreover, my good people are right to say that NO ONE has EVER died due to marijuana overdose;however, crack, cocaine, heroin(??), alcohol, and ASPRIN have all killed people, directly, due to overdose.
