"Man in 7th place not on performance enhancing drugs."

I don't smoke but ate a pot brownie at a party one time. I knew something was wrong with it because it just tasted kind of... I don't know... grassy. But I'd never had anything baked with marijuana and I was pretty drunk so I didn't figure it out until a couple of bites in.
Don't recall feeling any ill effects but like I said I was really drunk, the room might have been spinning a little more than usual but at that point who the hell can tell.
Anyway, just going by my own experience I'm not really sure I buy the excuse that he didn't know what was in it. Like I said, even falling down drunk I knew something was off about that god damned brownie.
I also think it is an unfortunate thing for an athlete to get busted for. It's not exactly performance enhancing... unless maybe you're about to enter an eating contest.

I don't really have a dog in this hunt, but I constantly witness one human trying to externalize their own experiences onto the rest of humanity. It's a flawed model. The only person who experiences the world in the exact same manner as you is you.
Shame about Delpopolo though.Shut the hell up and train.

What the **** is wrong with these people? Marijuana is not a drug. So a man smokes herb, what's the harm in that? No need to investigate a ************ and call in the FBI and NCIS, like where the **** is Mark Harmon at? Plus he only got caught once, where his warning at?
It's not like he was trying to cheat or nothing.
Meanwhile, Florence Griffith-Joiner who was CLEARLY on performance enhancing ****, and Ben Johnson who clearly was doping still have their world records standing.

Many have led VERY structured and sheltered lives, and are more akin to cloistered kids at their freshman year at college, without chaperons for the first time.
Just because someone has elite athletic prowess doesn't mean they have a lick of common sense or any street smarts whatsoever; in fact i think it makes it somewhat less likely that they might posses those skills.
