http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/02/01/michael.phelps.marijuana/index.html In other words: I'm not really regretful for the manner in which I acted, rather I'm regretful for allowing a picture to be taken of me taking a bong hit, and posted on the internet. In the future when I partake, I will know better than to allow myself to be photographed as such. As much as I love to partake, if I was in Phelps position, I could do without the Mary Jane until I was done with all my athletics. (i.e. what Ricky Williams should have done). However, none of this crap would happen if legislators would get their fricken heads out of their asses and legalize weed. It in no way enhances athletic performance. I see no reason why this of all substances is banned, especially for athletics. Jeez.
