    No. It all depends on how often he does it and whether he still does

    I only care in the sense that it helps illustrate how non-harmful the drug is, and how ridiculous it is to criminalize it.

    *doesn't smoke pot, FTR*

    My question is as to why a young, popular american male being caught smoking pot is news in the first place.

    So to answer the question, I do not care in the least.

    Regardless of whether it should be legal, the fact is it isn't, and when you are a high profile persona as he, you don't participate in illegal activities and expect to get away with it.

    If it were you or I, we would be charged in a heartbeat. Why give this dummy a break just because of who he is?

    ehh who cares ... it's pot not 'roids, HGH, Doping, Etc. its not enhancing his performance except maybe helping him with the 12k daily calorie intake. He shouldn't have to apolygize for anything. I would have just said ... " Pot ??? Ehhh it happens " lol

    FTR, if you got caught smoking, I wouldn't want you to be charged, either. I don't want him to get away with it because he's famous, I want it to stop being a crime in the first place.

    since I posted the poll.. FTR I don't care either, I just think its ridiculous the amount of coverage it is getting. I also think Pot should be made legal even though I don't and have never smoked it.. legalize it and tax it.. that'll help the US out a little bit.

    Wait. You say you don't care, but you clearly state an opinion anyway? I is confused.

    And FTR, I like mittens.

    I think its funny more than anything. I guess the biggest reason people are upset is because Phelps is technically a role model to millions of kids and teens. He's on Wheaties boxes and now he could be a role model for these kids and teens to try pot. Frankly, its stupid and faulty logic, but its not surprising.

    Call back when it's important, like multiple homicide.

    I knew that guy was a dope, but this takes the whole cake. Not only is he stupid, but he is further frying what little brain cells (not to mention his lungs) he has with Pot. The media coverage for this incident is stupid, but no dumber than covering Mel Gibson's druken "I hate Jews" rant, his arrest, and later, flashing his Mug Shot on TV every day of the week.

    They better not let him off easy because he's "Famous".
