Is America’s Most Famous Olympian A Marijuana Consumer? (as both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were cannabis connoisseurs)

http://blog.norml.org/2009/01/31/is-americas-most-famous-olympian-a-marijuana-consumer/
Well now…maybe the story today on the Drudge Report–featuring a possible photograph of uber-Olympian and champion pitch man Michael Phelps indulging in some marijuana use with a nice, big glass bong–may finally explain why, when I’m in Baltimore, business owners and some in the media often ask me “if Michael Phelps is a big NORML supporter?” My usual reply is ‘no, not as far as I know. Why?’
…and now with all of Phelps’ sponsors declaring Marijuana a non-issue as the Netherlands has many many years ago, Phelps could actually capitalize from this vicious media smearing. If Phelps should apologize for ANYTHING, he should apologize for not setting a better example for the MANY, MANY athletes that occasionally use cannabis by not consuming cannabis from a vaporizer. Although many studies prove that cannabis smoke is non-carcinogenic, inhaled extremely hot air can still cause pulmonary fibrosis (where alveoli in the lungs are converted to fibrous connective tissue) and emphysema (over the span of decades and decades of heavy smoking). If Michael Phelps endorsed the Volcano Vaporizer (the BMW M-5 equivalent of cannabis consumption), I bet sales of the Volcano would skyrocket. Pot is big business, and by not regulating and taxing weed like alcohol local, state, and federal government are squandering an opportune business venture.

  1. Phelps might have made alienated a few people with that pot-smoking picture, but i think he might have gained the support of another huge group of people to take their place
