Pot proponents upset with Kellogg's for bonging Phelps

Michael Phelps took a hit recently when Kellogg Co. got frosted at him for flaking out on them when he was caught smoking marijuana from a bong last November (click post title for Tribune story).

They've decided they'll no longer be showing him the green, despite sticking with him after a previous drunk driving conviction. Pot proponents are pretty steamed about the whole thing, and I agree. Athletes can drink, smoke cigarettes, commit acts of domestic violence, and worse, and have no problem getting lucrative endorsement deals. Phelps is a dope for getting caught, but Kellogg Co. doesn't have a real leg to stand on when you consider that the company's founder, John Harvey Kellogg, was a proponent of genital cages and electric shock, and co-founded the Race Betterment Foundation, which helped spark the eugenics movement in America. Kellogg Co. is on their high horse here, and needs to leggo their ego.


  1. Very thought provoking when compared to the idiot acts by "professional" players that continue to be swept under the rug.

  2. I enjoy genital cages. Lay off of you no-nothing blog writing punk!
