Some people are all butt-hurt over gold medal winner Michael Phelps smoking some weed. They feel disappointed, betrayed, conned that the US Golden Boy enjoyed cannabis at a South Carolina house party. Now the county sheriff is sharpening up the handcuffs and contemplating criminal charges.
Here’s an idea. Maybe…just maybe…smoking pot isn’t a big deal. Keep yourself open to new ideas…such as, taking a few bong rips is as big of a deal as drinking a few beers. The fallout from Nancy Regan’s D.A.R.E. campaign has created a nation of sweaty-palmed “moralists,” at the same time ready to condemn others and purposely blind to their own faults. Of the pundits shouting for the punishment of Phelps, I would be surprised if less than half of them are themselves burdened by alcoholism, or addiction to pills, prescribed or not.
Sorry, didn’t intend for this to become a rant. Maybe I should take a bong load and chill the F out.
