I didn't read the article, never heard of the band, just wanted to say that this whole Michael Phelps thing is fucking looney. There's nothing wrong with smoking weed, and it makes me furious to see all the negative things the press has to say about it. Did he die? No. Is he addicted? Not possible. Did he convulse and/or have paranoid visions? America once again proves its futilism.
Is it still illegal? Yes.
Thus the big deal.
