Uh oh! What was he thinking? He's totally in the public eye now! Geez.

i really don't like him anyway, so seeing this just made me laugh. when the olympics was on i was so fed up of hearing about him.


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

Hi Brittney!!

I hope you're having a super fine day!!

As one who does NOT believe that smoking pot should be illegal - I think the idea of Michael Phelps being charged is a complete waste of time AND money.

According to the article... "Under South Carolina law, possession of one ounce or less of marijuana is a misdemeanor that carries a fine of up to $200 and 30 days in jail for the first offense."

I think that's insane. I really do. Imagine being sent to JAIL for 30 DAYS for possession of ONE OUNCE or LESS of marijuana.

And just so you know - I've never smoked pot. I've never used ANY illegal drug. I just find it ironic that the person arresting someone for doing what Phelps is accused of doing could LEGALLY go home later that same day and drink as much alcohol as his or her body could tolerate and NOT break ANY laws.

I appreciate how one might feel that because Phelps is now in the public eye he should behave more responsibly - but really - he's still just a human being - like you and me. And in spite of the fact that some cereal or soda pop company [Or whatever] want's to USE his image to make MILLIONS of dollars - he owes us NOTHING. His claim to fame is that he is a great swimmer. He's not running for president or preaching from some pulpit.

GREAT BIG HUG
Craig!!

From what I heard we don't even know if it is pot or not. Just that he used a bong to smoke something.

Don't be too quick to judge

Until they prove he was smoking marijuana, then charging him with anything is unacceptable. You CAN smoke tobacco from a bong.

I don't really care, at all. How many athletes do you think do pot? He got caught. Drop it.

He did something that lots- dare I say most?- people do at some point.
Who gives a fuck? He got caught. Not his fault. He did nothing wrong.
Whether or not you like him, this will effect his life/career significantly and that is seriously ridiculous.

sidenote: he's from my hometown. so, whether or not he's a bit annoying (or was, during the Olympics which is the last time I was aware he existed before this thread) he makes me kinda proud. *tear tear* lol.

I'm not surprised for some reason he looks like he's high half the time anyway.

i like how because he's famous they want to charge him for a picture.

if you went the the cops with a picture of anyone who is not famous they would just laugh at you and not care.

If he is taking drugs, he should be charged as a civilian. I hate how celebrities get away with drug abuse that a lot of civilians wouldn't, and then flaunt it in the public eye, much the same for drink driving and the like. They should be treated like normal people, bring them down a notch.

if the police found a photo of a civilian hitting a bong, the civilian probably would not be arrested.

Like he wasn't when he first won 8 Olympic gold medals? :P

Michael Phelps is only human. He's made a mistake in doing this out in public, although many people are making such a huge deal out of nothing really.

I guess an accomplished Olympic Gold Medalist smoking weed kind of kills the image of all pot smokers being unsuccessful couch potato deadbeats unable to think for themselves. Of course I'm thinking of all the silly PSA's like the one where the kid sets his car on fire...

I'm not suprised that they would try to make an example out of him by charging him so harshly.

Y'know, I read the thread title and got all psyched that Fred Phelps was going to be made more an ass of than he already is.

Wrong Phelps though. Gotta say, I'm kinda disappointed. I can never wait for the next Fred Phelps sighting.


The atoms that make up you and me were born in the hearts of suns many times greater than ours, and in time our atoms will once again reside amongst the stars. Life is but an idle dalliance of the cosmos, frail, and soon forgotten. We have been set adrift in an ocean whose tides we are only beginning to comprehend and with that maturity has come the realization that we are, at least for now, alone. In that loneliness, it falls to us to shine as brightly as the stars from which we came.
