Phelps has embarrassed himself again after a triumphant Olympics, this time getting his picture snapped as he inhaled from a marijuana pipe. The photo wound up in a British tabloid Sunday, forcing Phelps to publicly apologize and his handlers to deal with sponsors who are surely none too pleased about the swimmer's choices away from the pool.

"I engaged in behavior which was regrettable and demonstrated bad judgment," Phelps said in the statement released by one of his agents. "I'm 23 years old and despite the successes I've had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner people have come to expect from me. For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again."

Did your opinion of Olympic champion Michael Phelps change when pictures of him smoking marijuana were released?

No, he's still just a boring dude.

I'm sure tons of other people involved in the Olympics have done drugs, but no-one found out yet.

I would be pissed if it was discovered that he was taking steroids. That's cheating. Smoking weed and winning gold definitely says "in your face!" to other countries.


That's what I was thinking ... pot isn't exactly a performance-enhancing drug. I don't even know why the Olympics tests for it.

No, not at all. I already knew he smoked pot anyway, I know somebody who had already smoked a blunt with him.

Oh my God! He smoked marijuana! He must be a horrible horrible person and I will never respect him again. Seriously though, who cares if he smoked pot? It's not the end of the world. Not even close.

My opinion never changed becuase I knew he was a druggie from the start.

No, I see no problem with it.

I agree with that article, including punishment for the traitors. One, you just don't treat friends that way. Two, narcs shouldn't be obliged to smoke the ganja.

His only mistake was being around douches who would sell pics of him like that...

yeah, in a way that wasnt good or bad. I assume the people we choose to make celebrities are not expected to be saints, in private. Smoking a little weed really isnt that bad. I felt sorry for him though, for the treacherous bastage that filmed him and then released the tape, which cost him millions in endorsements. If i were Phelps, id find the cameraperson and get medeival on them for a while.
