And I'm happy to see that this isn't turning into a big of deal as originally forecasted. Sure, the news wentcrazy for it at first, but since then the fervor is dying down. He's not getting dropped from his sponsors and such, and for good reason. Now, I'm no stoner by any stretch of the imagination, but the fact is that pot is at the same level as alcohol. And as Robin Williams put it, "weed is not a performance enhancing drug, unless you put a giant Hershey bar at the end of the pool." (That was paraphrased.)
2/6/09 EDIT: Whelp, he's suspended from swimming for 3 months, and Kellogg's dropped him from sponsorship. So now he's only receiving $95 million dollars a year in sponsorship money.
