Looks fake. But I understand he apologized so it must be real.

If I had known the effects of the stuff I would've done more and tried for 8 Olympic medals.

"Smoke" was a great novel by Turgenev:





Highly recommended.

Ah, but for a nickle, the dealer will sell you some sweet dreams! - to paraphrase Steppenwolf. Ya shouldn't knock anything you never tried.

Except when being near the weed makes you swell up like a blowfish..

That goes for Tobacco or any ragweed family products.. Yes even Tomatoes...

Me thinks I know you too well. I saw you quoted lower down on the page and I thought "Those words are Cliff's response to me" and voila! Here is my answer. I'm never going to try it regardless but - that's just me. I can think of better ways to spend my dime (and my nickle too). If you are still here on line - sweet dreams. Sounds like Spade is going to have some.

Holy Cow, SirFrancis, you smoked tomato leaves. That must have been really harsh man. I think I would swell up like a blowfish too!

The same reason why people will drink a glass a wine a day, or to get sh*t faced on the weekend when shooting vodka.

Why?

Because it's there.

Michael Phelps problem now is if his sponsors pull out, this is a huge money loser.

Well to each their own.... I used to drink all the time, now I screwed my stomach and can't drink without crapping out liquid fire for 2 days.....

But even when I did take the time to drink, I never understood why people did.... you get sick, puke your guts up, loose your co-ordination, tend to act either stupid, ignorant, jerkish, violent, or something else not all that positive.... you can end up forgetting what you did most of the night before in some cases...... it's expensive considering what you need to spend to get some sort of an effect in just one night..... I could spend the same amount of weed that would last me at least three days.

But people do, so who am I to argue?

One thing I never got was who cares? What's done on his own personal time is nobody else's business. Sure everybody's used to the tabloids giving us all the personal details of celeb's off work lifestyle, but that doesn't make it right..... it's an invasion of privacy and so long as they can do what they're meant to do in their jobs, whatever that may be.... what should it matter if they smoke pot, drink all the time, or have big sex parties?

Sure this is the US and marijuana is more looked down apon then a masturbating priest, but come on..... (No pun intended)

Actually, what sort of effect would it have on the public's image if he was caught having a big orgy, compared to smoking a bong? One's legal and the other isn't.... but what effect would have been made?

But I think the balls in his court.... who cares about what sponsors drop? He's got friggin gold medals up the wazoo..... I'm sure many other sponsors would love to take their place..... like Mary Jane's Smoke Shop, or High Times Magazine.

In fact, he shouldn't have apologized.... he should have taking his position and used it to promote the decriminalization of marijuana in the US, followed by the legalization there after.

He's got the power man.

Added:

If my private life was exposed like that to the public and I was in a position like he was, I'd be doing exactly what they wouldn't be expecting and turn the whole situation up apon its ***.... and cause a huge stink of a movement..... that'll learn em.

And this is why according to Canuck's exhaustive research, Michael Phelps will never amount to anything, he lacks cognative skills and motivation.

Maybe he should try a vaporizer.

Or the Canadian Snowboarder, Matthew Morison, who won a silver.... oh wait.... if he didn't smoke weed, he would have gotten gold

the US olympic committee, they can shelve him as a bad rolemodel.

You can't have someone who's used drugs being a rolemodel to millions. What if it came out that he also did cocaine in his youth? Imagine how terrible a rolemodel he'd be then!

Firstly, I never suggested he or any pot smoker wouldn't amount to anything but you are right, he does lack cognitive skills...walk away from millions in endorsements just for a toke at a party. Another example backing up my observations.

You know, I think that no one taught you to drink. From what you described, you drank to get hammered. When you are a kid and get access to booze at 18, 19, or 21, all the doors open and you can have all you want. No one around you knows anything except that you have to learn how to drink like a MAN and this means puking and getting blitzed out of your mind.

It is actually all wrong.

To drink correctly you have to learn a few things about yourself like your limits, your threshold and what sort of alcohol affects you in the right way.

This, like enjoying pot, should be taught to kids as they are reaching their later teen years. What to eat with what to prepare the palate, how to clense, and how to mix the assorted flavours so that at the end of the evening, you have a delicious glow, and your system is able to handle the detoxification of the alcohol and pot you have embibed over the evening.

I drink Bushmills Black Bush Irish Whiskey because of the taste and texture. I drink Guinness because of the taste and texture. Not to get drunk, I rarely get drunk anymore.

But it's madness to think that if you tall kids it's bad all their life and not to touch it, then one day when they reach an age, you open all the locks and tell them to be good while all their friends are yelling drink drink drink at them, that there won't be a problem.

Seems to me that it's exactly backwards.

Teach them what it is and a responsible way to enjoy it, and allow them to discover their boundries while safe at home with you to guide them, and you won't go wrong.

And of course he is all of what 23?
Everyone knows that at that age kids are as responsible and understand the ramifications of all things. Especially those shealtered ones who were never allowed to think about anything other than a sport.

If you want to see the most responsible and inteligent activities in the world, look no further than your local college or university at end of year. Or any sping break.

23 is not a kid. I already owned my first house by then and I didn't have millions in endorsement money. If I had, I would have made some effort to protect it. Then again, I wasn't a pot smoker with poor cognitive skills.

Niether is an 18 year old. Still "kids" is a relative thing. My two are grown adults yet they both are still kids when I see them.

I would suspect that Phelps has spent far more than you paid for your house back then on PR to protect his endorsments.

And about this poor cognitive skills stuff I would like to see what you think about people who have smoked pot in this list.
