Michael Phelps and the Reefer Madness
OK. I better admit it right off the baseball bat. I'm a HUGE fan of Michael Phelps.
For the way he swims. For the content of his character.
For his awesome ability to drive while drunk.
And of course for his tight body.
And his enormous fingers...
And now for his Godly ability to use his massive lung power.
To blow lucky bongs.
Like a vacuum cleaner.....
So as you can imagine I'm EXTREMELY disappointed by his grovelling apology for the "crime" of smoking a little marijuana.
"I engaged in behaviour which was regrettable and demonstrated bad judgment," Phelps said. "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."
Totally disgusted by the way the media has blown the story out of proportion.
And practically nauseated by the stench of hypocrisy.
My position? If Phelpsie can have a little dope now and then....and win eight medals....maybe we should smoke up Team Canada before the NEXT Olympics. So we can win some too eh?
Or maybe we should just LEGALIZE it.
Like the song says...
I mean really. Twenty-two years after Peter Tosh was killed, people are still being busted, jailed, or humiliated for smoking a drug that's safer than beer?
And the rest of us who haven't been arrested...yet...are still waiting for the insanity and the hypocrisy to end. What a bummer. Talk about reefer madness.
Anyone know where I can get a bong?
I think I'm gonna need one....
