Michael Phelps POT SMOKER

Record breaking gold medal Olympian Michael Phelps is a pot smoker. A source revealed to News Of The World: ‘You could tell Michael had smoked before. He grabbed the bong and a lighter and knew exactly what to do. He looked just as natural with a bong in his hands..

..as he does swimming in the pool. He was the gold medal winner of bong hits. Michael ended up getting a little paranoid, though, because before too long he looked like he was nervous and ran out of the place.’

Michael released an apologetic statement: ‘I engaged in behavior which was regrettable and demonstrated bad judgment. 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.’

Do YOU think Michael should be stripped of his endorsement deals?

    Well after his DUI back after the 2004 olympics, I’m not at all surprised at this new development in his behavior. Disappointed, yes, but not surprised.

    I wish he was smart enough to see that he has way too much going for him to risk such controversy.

  • Lisa Lisa

    No, he shouldn’t be stripped from his endorsement deals! What is with you guys being brainwashed? It’s already been proven marijuana doesn’t take you to harder drugs.

    He may be an idol to kids, but he should be allowed to live his life like other people his age. I’m wondering who took his picture and why they would want to hurt him like that, what a loser. I believe this was a private party.

  • who gives a shit

    how do we even know this picture is actually him????

  • Shannon

    I’m 18 and I have never smoked pot.
    If he wants to, then whatever. He is an adult.
    Yeah, he is an idol, but people looked up to Britney when she was going crazy.

    Would you rather have him get high, or kill someone?

    who, honestly really gives a flying fuck?

  • laaa

    oh god. Pot is just gross..well all drugs are. Everyone i know who does it are dirtbags and lowlifes. I hope he doesn’t make this mistake again. Especially if he is such a huge athlete. Doing drugs when your as athletic as he is ruins everything. He obviously was not thinking about his career while doing this. Hopefully he learned his lesson.

    he’s an idiot if he’s smoking any type of drug.

  • Jonas 4 Canada !

    Ya but that pic doesn’t look like him AT ALL!

  • Anonymous

    since when was it a surprise that an athlete did drugs?
    and really.. he’s old enough to take care of himself.

    unfortunately he willingly chose to do pot. but it doesnt make me like him any less. it just makes me question his judgement.

    but whatever.
    i really dont think he should be stripped of his endorsements.

  • Anonymous

    Obviously it shouldn’t matter because he smokes and that kills yer breathing but yet he is a really good swimmer so it shouldn’t matter.

  • Jonas 4 Canada !

    Drugs are all bad! But I’m not mad at Michael cuz this
    stroy is NOT legit enough for me to believe!

    i’d spark one up with him and k steward lol

  • mojo

    He should lose his endorsement deals and surrender his Olympic medals. This behavior is not in line with the olympic standards of sportmanship, healthy living, and inspiration to others.
    Some of you will say “it’s just pot” or “he’s an adult and can do what he wants.” Sorry. Thats beyond the point. He knew the rules and broke them, he should suffer the consequences.

    He’s a grown man. He’s old enough to know that it’s not good for him. He doesn’t need us telling him. Let him do what he wants.

  • Mileyy

    ok so i know pot is really bad and all…but this kind of really turns me on.

  • Anonymous

    You people who are saying it’s just weed and everyone does it… that’s just horrible. I mean he’s someone that little kids look up to, but then again celebrities are too expose to the light and do things that should make them go to an isolated place or something. Fame gets to people. It’s a shame that it got to Michael Phelps. I was a fan, but man… that’s horrible. he’s the one who said I will do as many drug tests as he can and such because he wants to prove to people that he’s drug free… MY BUTT

  • tori

    there goes his career.

  • Natalya

    Ok so this guy was in trouble with the law before and like he got caught with DUI a few years back and he said the same thing, “This will never happen again.” Well look at it now, getting in trouble with the law again. U know, yes he is an amazing swimmer, but he is not exactly the best person to look up to. I mean look at ryan lochte, aaron peirsol, and dara torres, they r amazing swimmers 2 with no history of doing any of that.

  • Claire

    ughh I hate how people are like “he’s old enough” you shouldn’t do pot at any age!!! I mean really! He’s old enough to know not to do it. He seems like a smart guy. This will upset MANY children who look up to him. Although if it was just once, I think he shouldn’t be penalized. Everyone makes mistakes

  • josie(:

    that looks delicious.

  • den

    so nobody seems to be so mad that
    michael phelps is the one smoking,
    but when its kristen stewart,
    everybody completely despises her.
    i get that there both old eneough’

    I was reading the comments and i’m like ‘omg, these people are unbelievable. When Michael Phelps does pot it’s ok, it’s great! It’s not a big deal!’

    I wonder if they remembered their reactions when those pics were posted of Kristen smoking from a pipe.. seriously.

    Nice u f#cking hypocrits…

  • Anonymous

    Are you kidding me?
    All you guys are saying: “Oh, it’s alright, everyone does it blah blah blah” And that makes everything okay? Just because EVERYONE does it does not make it all of a sudden A-okay and a done deal with it being safe. God, I swear whoever said that is an IDIOT. Just because everyone’s doing it doesn’t make it an acception. That’s like the saying “If everyone jumped off a cliff, would you?” God, some people are stupid …

  • Jonas 4 Canada !

    YA but just sayin if u were such a fan wudn’t
    u look past the title and at the pic? Like that
    does NOT look like Michael Phelps at all!

    i do not care many people smoke and drink now a days. he will eventually that he is a hero. he will mature, and he realize drugs are stupid. he might just do it recreationally.

  • kamilah

    this is a fucking joke. how are you going to strip medals from an olympian who smokes weed. its not like weed enhances muscle growth. this is ridiculous. the man wasnt taking steriods so its really not a big deal. ill be fucking pissed if his medals get taken away. his performances in the 08’olympic was incredible and that took a shit ton of hard work and dedication. they shouldnt even be discussing this, its fucking stupid

  • Amari

    … Weed or pain killers… which would be worst?

    And still weed is used for medical reasons nowadays more and more so i don’t see why we still have a stickup our bums about someone smoking it…

    Though i do realize w/o a doctor’s prescription it’s illegal…

    He’s setting a bad example to all the athletes who have dreams. He believes that he’ll quit now that its out in the open, he’s a fool to believe it.

  • potlover

    This disgusts me. What idiot is going to smoke pot whenever their living their dream?! It’s retared. Who smokes pot anyway? It’s disgusting. Why do you wanna smoke pot?! Eww. & the fact that he has enough nerve to apologize to his fans. I don’t get it. I never even liked Michael Phelps anyway. He was always a monkey looking man to me.


    HAHAHAHA YOU’RE THE RETARDED ONE. pot is so common. and if you’ve never smoked pot then you can’t judge him. I honestly think this makes him more of an idol to me. He’s not one of those goody-too-shoes. Michael Phelps is amazing. He earned everything he’s got. I’m honestly more amazed by the guy who admitted the picture in the first place…idiot.

  • Anonymous

    it doesn’t matter that he’s a man. smoking pot is against Olympic rules.
    i’m not saying i’m disappointed or any of that shit..i’m just saying, just because he’s in his 20s doesn’t make smoking pot right.

    who cares? it’s just weed. it’s not like half of the celebs with endorsements don’t already do some drugs, like weed. it’s not a big deal. people should get over it. and no he should not be stripped of anything. he worked damn hard for what he’s gotten and that would be a bitch to take it away just cuz he took a few hits of bud

    personally i think its hott. ahaaa

    There was a new law added to the Olympic handbook that bans athletes from taking drugs for four years. So he could be barred from the 2012 Olympics.

    Some people are so stupid… “What’s the big deal?” The big deal is that its DRUGS! Drugs are bad for you, duh. And it doesn’t matter how old he is, its still bad for you.

  • Jonas 4 Canada !

    Not tryin to bash u, but that is NOT good.
    Smoking pot is BAD for you, no matter
    what people say. Its destroys ur lungs, and
    can psychologically effect u by making u want
    more hardcore drugs like heroin or meth. Its
    one thing when u use marijuana if its
    prescribed to you by a physician, but
    another if u do it for a high for fun!
    U are VERY SMART school wise, but aren’t
    being very street smart. And FYI, that
    grade can slip if u continue to use

    Although I don’t approve of his actions, I don’t think he should be stripped of his endorsement deals. He is a grown man…not a child. It was a stupid decision and I will never see him quite the same way again but he is still an amazing swimmer and earned what he got. One mistake should not take away all he has earned.

    1. He doesn’t smoke pot when he swims because he would be to tired to swim, so it shouldn’t effect his endorsement deals …
    2. POT is THE FUCKING BEST, I love it.
    3. Calm the fuck down people, what he does in HIS life are HIS choices & they have fuck all to do with you …

    4. Go smoke a bowl or a joint, it’s all good bitches …

    I love him, but I think this might hurt his endorsment deals. He is like an idol to kids and no mother is going to want him on her kids frosted flakes box. Also you would think he would be a bit more careful after his DUI at like 19, its doesn’t help his reputation.

    it IS a big deal. not everyone smokes pot…i am 18 and i have certainly never tried it, even if i have been offered many times. this reflects his lack of judgement i thought he was better than this, and as an athlete he should have known better.

    Your almost right but not exactly. Smoking pot is only bad for you because it reduces lung capacity. I personally know from experience it doesn’t make you want to do other drugs, I have smoked enough of it to know that. Pot only gets you high & it doesn’t hurt you, it actually makes people more enjoyable to be around because everyone is in a much happier mood when they are high.

    Peace ; Love ; Weed <3 …

    weed is seriously not a big deal at all
    shit, cigarettes are 100x more harmful than weed
    have you ever heard of someone dieing from weed or overdosing on weed…..no
    thats because its a fucking herb not chemicals
    weed is a type of prescription for some medical conditions so its not a big deal
    i dont smoke weed but i have tryed it a couple of times
    im not saying “yah everyone go smoke weed” but im not going to judge someone if they do. i have plenty of friends who smoke weed and their not bad ppl.
    id rather you smoke weed than cigarettes
