Any one of these young guns on the PGA or LPGA Tour may have "visited the pipe" but I ask, "did they inhale?"

Although tournament ratings may improve because of a golfer's perceived "hip" value, I cannot believe that, overall, drugs are good for any sport. Celebrities have an obligation to the youth to maintain a squeaky-clean exterior.

Given what we know about marijuana's effect on the body & respiratory system, we should be celebrating Phelps' feat even more than we initially did.

Right, BT! Like good ol' booze-bloated, syphilitic Babe Ruth! Wow. Just think what he could have done if he'd worked out and taken care of himself...

You liberals, sorry, "progressives" just love marijuana, don't you?
You should take the time to visit a court room where narcotics cases are being adjudicated. Listen to the testimony and admissions of the defendants.

I guarantee that each and every one of them will admit that their careers of smoking, injecting, and/or inhaling addictive narcotics began with the so-called "recreational" use of marijuana.

So I take it that being alcohol and cigarettes are legal, you don't consider them drugs?

And next time you accuse me of making everything political, please refer to your above comment.

It's doubtful that we'll see any of the young guns like A. Kim, Villegas and McElroy extolling the salutory effects of Mary Jane.

Michael Phelps incurred a three-month suspension for his indiscretion. He also lost his lucrative endorsement with Kellogg's for his ill-advised flaunting of convention.

It seems that corporate America hasn't yet adopted the tolerance toward marijuana use that you liberals would like to see. Here's hoping that they never do.

Linear conversation just isn't your thing, eh, Alex?

Nor is the lexicon. It's 'flouting' not 'flaunting.'

Willie,

Smoking of cigarettes, cigars, pipes, etc. is to me an abomination, something I've never done in all my 65+ years. I applaud the efforts to proscribe that disgusting habit.

It's great that all indoor smoking in public places has been banned in my home state of Illinois.

However, I think it's a bit of a stretch to include anti-smoking provisions in a so-called stimulus bill.

The failure of the 18th amendment has been well-documented. Perhaps the day will come when reefer will become legal, and it's being banned will be exposed as another failure. Until that day comes, parents and teachers should discourage its use as well as that of cigarettes and alcohol, especially "binge" drinking.

Your Comrade Kiel introduced politics to this thread. I merely responded in kind.

Willie,

You're correct in your critique of "flaunt" versus "flout."

But you're dead wrong that the young guns wouldn't risk their reputations or advertising potentials by crowing about their drug usage. Michael Phelps is a glaring example of exactly that premise.

And Willie, do you really want to start comparing vocabularies with your correspondents?

Actually, I introduced vocabulary. Not politics, though. Prohibition is politics. And yes, I will be happy to compare mine with anyone's, any day.

Willie,

Since Phelps is an American icon, the recipient of more accolades and endorsements than the rest of our Olympians combined, he should have known better.

But if the American public are to take your praise of cannabis seriously, why encourage people like A. Kim, Camilo, McElroy, Paula, and Bubbles to fess up to proudly using the illegal weed? Very few of the general public are familiar with these people.

Why not get the great man himself, Tiger Woods, to glorify the beneficial effects of marijuana?

Surely you can't believe that Tiger, growing up in Southern California and for two years walking the hallowed halls of Stanford, hasn't tried a few hits on the bong?

Forget the young guns, encourage the mature gun, Tiger Woods, to reveal his secret to success, his affair with Mary Warner.
