Marijuana Claims Another Victim

Imagine how many medals he could have won if he wasn't a pot smoker.
Michael Phelps, the Rodgers Forge native who has won more gold medals than anyone in Olympic history, acknowledged yesterday that he had engaged in "regrettable" behavior and shown "bad judgment" after a photo of him smoking what appears to be marijuana from a glass bong was published in a British tabloid over the weekend.
Michael, your "bad judgement" was allowing yourself to be in a picture ripping a bong hit, not smoking pot.

Beautiful work though by his PR team. They were given a chance to dump this news on the best possible day to do that -- the Super Bowl -- and they gladly took it. This is why it is helpful to have a very expensive media machine around you.
